Hi, I’m Chris, and I’m a Software Engineer from Munich, Germany. I focus on Back-End Web Development and CI/CD to bring reliable products to users. I’m currently studying Business Information Systems (M.Sc.) at the Technical University of Munich (TUM), but I’ve learned most of the interesting stuff through my own projects and my desire for new experience. Programming as a craftsmanship is my main hobby, learning something new keeps me motivated. Lately Golang got my attention, Blockchain technologies are also on my radar. On the web you’ll find me as @arubacao.
Check out some of my selected projects
I've decided to start working on a personal website.
It's still in an early stage and not really filled out yet, but I wanted to launch it anyway.
Because - you know: Ship early. Ship often.
- Build with: Vue, Sass, Webpack, Netlify
- Work in Progress: Last updated July, 2019

Bimble is a real-time location-sharing and party tracking app for your nights out. All you have to do is to open
the app and start tracking. Bimble automatically detects where you go, which places you visit, how active and
even how drunk you are.
On the next day you receive a report with detailed information about your night out including a timeline of your journey, your drunkenness over time, and more.
We founded the company Bimble Motion LTD in 2015 after winning a London-based Hackathon organized by
DIAGEO and received funding to tackle problem drinking and encourage responsible drinking.
TourRec is a Recommender System for tourist trips facilitating the development and evaluation
of new recommendation algorithms, clients and data sources.
Our research team focuses on Recommender Systems and practical solutions to the Tourist Trip Design Problem.
We developed an Android application, multiple web applications and use them to demonstrate
how TourRec can generate recommendations for a sequence of POIs
for individuals as well as groups.
The modular backend architecture especially facilitates the development and
integration of new algorithms. Algorithms are interchangeable and isolated processes with a predefined
API. They can be developed without language constraints
and independent from the remaining system.
Countagram is a web application to create a custom countdown page for events like your next vacation or party.

- 3.000 User
- 1.000 Countdown Pages
