Position: Assistant Researcher ( WHK or Wissenschaftliche Hilfskraft )
Starting 1. March 2010 I work in Informatik 3 Department of Rheinische Friedrich-Wilhelms-Universität in Bonn.
My master is a joint effort between Uni Bonn and RWTH Aachen. During my master, I had the pleasure to be part in the Agile Lab, where I encountered two Research Associates, Pascal Bihler and Mark von Zeschau. They are true developers, result driven people and fair judges of our activity. During this lab, which was intensive, we had 3 weeks as developers in an almost real company environment. From 9 to 18, if you know what I mean.
The experience that I had we very nice and as soon as I could, I discussed with them about joining their development team. Now I have the pleasure of developing a project that will affect all students that will study in this department.
The project is an upgrade to the existing system and will be developed in Ruby on Rails and have a Postgres database, allowing students to have a better application experience. The basis of it are an interactive and dynamic application who has several workflows, involving both possible future students and professors into finding the best candidates for this fine university.
My responsibilities are:
- development in Ruby code on Rails platform
- database migrations / upgrades
- installing / configuring gems
- CSS / interface design
- testing of the application
This is one more important task who caries with it big responsibilities, but I’m feeling very good about it!
Starting from the Fall of 2002 a close collaboration begin between the RWTH Aachen University, University of Bonn, the Fraunhofer Institute Centre Birlinghoven Castle IZB and the University of Applied Sciences Bonn Rhein-Sieg . They joined forces to establish the Bonn-Aachen International Center for Information Technology (B-IT) who, as a collaboration, ranked the first university in Computer Science in Germany, above Technical University of Munich and the University of Karlsruhe.
I just got the confirmation that I will be enrolled into Agile lab and study the Agile development techniques along with Ruby on Rails and mobile programming. (more…)
