I'm professor for software engineering at the University of Applied Sciences and Arts Northwestern Switzerland in the Institute of Mobile and Distributed Systems. My interests are in methodologies and techniques for efficient software development of software systems. I'm currently teaching courses at the Bachelor and Master degreee in Software Engineering, Software Construction, Agile Software Project Management - and two courses about the .Net technology.

My main interests are in:

  • Agile Methodologies 
  • Tool supported Agile Collaboration
  • Automated Software Construction
  • Software Metrics and Analysis

On www.swissagilestudy.ch we execute and publish the reports of our bi-annual online survey about the state of software development in Switzerland.
The study is open participate - just click on this link. Thanks a lot for your participation 
in advance!

In 2015 I spent a great sabbatical at hotsoft lab with Robert Biddle and his team at the Carleton University. Thanks for everything!

My wiki site softwareengineering7.wikispaces.com contains a growing collection of links on topics about Software Engineering. I'm looking for new ones.

I'm in the management board of the Software Engineering Network, SWEN, whose goal is to propagate modern software engineering methodology in industry and to promote collaboration between industry and the University of Applied Sciences in Switzerland. For this we are organizing talks and presentations of any interesting topic about modern software engineering. So if you have something to tell, or are interested in a topic, let me know. 

I'm Certified Scrum Master (CSM) and member of the Scrum Alliance.
