DevOps / GitHub / Azure



As the founder and CEO of Xpirit Germany, I drive the digital, cloud and DevOps transformation for my clients in Germany.

I've work for more than 20 years as a consultant and manager in the IT industry. I’m a Microsoft MVP for DevOps ever since 2015 and I love to help my customers succeed in their enterprise transformation. I can build bridges between management and engineering and I can coach teams and leaders. I love the community and I believe that technical communities are an important part in the modern work life. I’m one of the organizers of Azure Meetup Stuttgart and GitHub Stuttgart. I regularly speak and sponsor other Meetups – all over Germany.

I'm the author of the book Git for Dummies (German) and I'm writing my next book about DevOps with GitHub.

My passion is sharing knowledge through public speaking, writing and mentoring. I’m a regular speaker at international conferences and I speak in English, German, and Spanish. I’ve published several articles in magazines and I regularly blog at writeabout.net. Talk to me about DevOps, GitHub, DevSecOps, Azure, AWS, .NET, Clean Code, Scrum and Kanban
