People Really Love The Newsletter

" Must-read for me. The 'If you only read one thing' section is a personal favourite, showcasing Stephans ability to curate content. I highly recommend this newsletter! "
Łukasz Sudoł,
Senior Director of Engineering
" I read Stephan's newsletter every Sunday. I like that he comments each link, sharing his own insights and views on it. Especially since I share Stephan's view that the software development industry has become unnecessarily complex. "

Who is writing the newsletter?

As a CTO, Interim CTO, CTO Coach - and developer - I have seen many technology departments in fast-growing startups. As a kid I taught myself coding in a department store around 1981 because I wanted to write video games. When the internet came to Germany in the 90 I worked as the first coder in several startups. Late I founded a VC funded startup, worked in VC funded, fast growing startups with architecture, processes and growth challenges, worked as a manager for ImmoScout and as a CTO of an eBay Inc. company. After my wife successfully sold her startup we moved to the sea and I took up CTO coaching. You can find me on LinkedIn
