The completely rewritten Codingfish for Android app is now available on Google Play. With the app you get the latest articles and photos from my website. More features will be implemented in the near future.
The big topics in 2015 will be my Ruby on Rails based CMS Chimoora and Android development in general.
I will leave MEDION, where I currently work as a Senior Software Engineer in their Android-Team, by the end of March
so I will then have more time for my own projects.
From April on I will work on Chimoora and I will continue to deepen my knowledge about Android and iOS.
Furthermore I will attend a few, mostly Android related, events. Follow me on
for the latest updates.

My website has recently been relaunched. Now it uses Chimoora, a Ruby on Rails based Content Management System (CMS). I was just setting up a new RSS Reader when I realized that Chimoora still had no RSS Feed for the blog articles.
Here is how I implemented the RSS Feed for Chimoora in 3 steps.
codingfish.com now has a photo section.
As you may know I travel quite a lot and wherever I am, I take a lot of photos.
Of course I do have accounts on platforms like 500px but that's not the same as an own photo gallery on my own website :-)
During the last weeks I worked on the Chimoora CMS to integrate "Photos" and now it's done. I will start with a few galleries and a handful of photos.
Of course, much more photos will be uploaded in the future. I will let you know ;-)
The Google I/O 2014 took place on June 25/26 at the Moscone West Convention Center in San Francisco and I was there.
It was my first IO and I would like to give a big "thank you" to my employer MEDION for the opportunity to attend this awesome event :-)
Most (if not all) of the sessions are on YouTube in the meantime so in this post I will only write my personal thoughts on the Google I/O 2014.
My website codingfish.com has been relaunched! The website now runs on Chimoora, a Ruby on Rails based Content Management System (CMS). On my new website I will post articles around software development, mobile devices and all other geek stuff that I love. Also, be prepared to see some photos. I'm a hobby photographer ;-)
To relaunch a website always means a lot of work! For this new website I even wrote a complete CMS from scratch. Chimoora is based on Ruby 2, Rails 4 and Bootstrap 3. codingfish.com runs on Ubuntu 14.04 (Trusty Tahr). The Rails application server is Phusion Passenger Enterprise 4.
codingfish.com has been powered by the CMS
for a couple of years. Now, the time has come to replace it with a brandnew CMS.
In recent months I wrote an own CMS from scratch and now it's ready for prime time!
codingfish.com will soon be relaunched. The website will then be powered by
Chimoora, a Ruby on Rails based Content Management System.

On February 1st, 2014 I will join the Android team at Medion in Essen, Germany as a "Senior Software Engineer". In this new regular job I will help to create great Android devices with our team in Essen and our partners in China.
This fulltime job will of course affect all my other projects. In short I would say:
Much less (almost zero) Joomla!, a bit more Ruby on Rails and much more Android.
