Oliver Becker

Hi! I am a fullstack web software developer based in Hamburg working on a freelance basis. I hold a doctor's degree in computer science from Humboldt University Berlin.

While I have a fundamental knowledge in the area of XML processing, I am working most of the time as a general web applications developer, using both Java and Scala on the backend, as well as different JavaScript frameworks like Backbone or AngularJS on the frontend. Amongst others I have gained a deep understanding of the Spring framework. Since I am interested in extending my skills into the field of iOS development I am exploring currently the new features of Swift.

Starting in October 2015 I will work as an associate lecturer at the Hamburg School of Business Administration (HSBA), teaching object orientation, Java, and JavaScript.

I have contributed to the specification of XSLT 3.0 and I am the author of the annotated german translation of the XPath 1.0 specification.

I admire clean code, humanity, an open mind, and when I'm not coding I enjoy cycling, playing drums, and taking photos.
