With 20 years in .NET development, Hannes has always been passionate about performance, databases, distributed systems and large-scale applications. When it comes to architecture, his opinions have become a bit more nuanced, and the "it depends" card, however boring, gets played in many technical discussions. Hannes has always had a passion for sharing knowledge. It doesn't matter whether it is one-to-one while pair programming, on a conference stage giving a talk or when he's helping people succeed in their careers as a coach. In his free time, when he's not building LEGO® castles with his three kids, he likes to stream his guitar building on Twitch and spends too much time playing online chess and doing all-around geeky stuff. You can always lure him into a chat over a glass of great Whisky.
