This site is supposed to be a showcase for my thoughts about software engineering, less a personal homepage. If you want to know more about me, invite me to a beer.

Also, have a look at my book "Developer on the Stage".

In this article I wrote about my attempt to add a navbar to my Angular app and how I ended up with adding the full JQuery library to be able to use Bootstrap components. Already when releasing this article I knew that this is not the best way to get a working navbar. In this article, I explain why using ng-bootstrap seems to be the best way to add Bootstrap components to an Angular application.

Yesterday, I wanted to add a simple Bootstrap Navigation bar to my Angular application that I created with JHipster. Although this is a standard component, I had difficulties because I didn’t understand how Bootstrap, Angular and NodJS play together. This article explains how to “really” add Bootstrap to an Angular application that got created by JHipster.

From March  to June 2018 I have the great privilage to be the visiting professor for the course Software Engineering at the Ostfalia university in Wolfenbüttel, Germany, in representation of Prof. Dr. Bernd Müller. Most of the students study computer science and are in their 3rd term. This article explains what topics I teach and why.

The next issue of Java Aktuell (02/2018) will contain an article I wrote about Remote Working. This is one of my favourite topics since I began working with colleagues from Romania and I'm convinced that with the right methods and processes, remote work will enhance both work quality as well as the personal life. That's basically the core message of what I wrote in the magazine.
