Hi, my name is Adrian Kummerländer. I am a twenty-four-year-old Software Developer located in southern Germany.

I taught myself programming at the age of 10 and spent the first few years developing software in Delphi and C#. After switching from the Windows ecosystem to Linux as my primary operating system I started developing primarily in XSLT, Scheme and C++ altough I enjoy it a lot to experiment with other languages such as Scala and Haskell.

My professional education in software development started with an apprenticeship as a “computer science expert with subject area software development”1 at Sybit in 2010 which I concluded with distinction in 2013.
My final project was on optimizing the development of Adobe Interactive Forms in SAP CRM projects using modularization. This entailed the development of a custom preprocessor language enabling meta programming in XFA templates on SAP systems.

Between 2013 and 2017 I continued to work at Sybit as a part-time developer in the SAP CRM area where I developed business printout processes using ABAP, JavaScript and XSLT in addition to SAP WebUI, Hybris C4C and Java application development.

Between 2013 and 2015 I studied for my A levels at the Technische Oberschule which I concluded top of my class with a grade point average of 1.1.

Currently I am studying mathematics at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology. Alongside my studies I work at the Institute for Applied and Numerical Mathematics where I contribute to OpenLB which is a C++ open source framework for numerical fluid flow simulations using Lattice Boltzmann Methods.

Although software development and tinkering with my computer systems definitely is a primary occupation of mine both professionally and recreationally, I also enjoy reading hard science fiction and going to concerts and festivals.

I use this website to document some of my thoughts and experiences concerning software development and various other topics in addition to summarizing some of my projects.

  1. This mouthful really is the official translation of my recognized trade but I for one prefer referring to myself simply as Software Developer
