Introduction

My main development language is Java, but I also work sometimes with C# and rarely with C++(Qt).

If it comes to frameworks I prefer Spring over Java Enterprise Edition, because it is lightweight and implements new trends very fast. This is also my experience after implementing around 20 Spring (also Spring Boot) applications and two huge JEE applications.

I’m currently looking into Kotlin as language and also in connection with Spring Boot 2 for server side development.
