About me and about this blog

Why ASP.NET Hacker? It doesn't really have a deeper sense. I chose this name because we got some blue ASP.NET Hacker badges on the ASP.NET hackathon at the MVP Summit 2015 in Redmond. I think this matches exactly what we do with ASP.NET, if we want do achieve the customers requirements. And this matches more exactly what we did in the past with ASP.NET Webforms. We hacked around ASP.NET to get the things working. Finally it is the recommended way to hack around ASP.NET Core. To extend, to reduce, to transform ASP.NET Core and .NET Core Applications to solve problems and to get the customers happy. ;)

I am a .NET addicted web developer, working with ASP.NET since 2002. (I started playing around in 2001 with the beta versions of .NET 1.0)

Since July 2015 I am awarded as a Microsoft MVP for Visual Studio and Development Technologies (former ASP.NET/IIS)

In January 1st, 2016 I took over the leadership of the INETA Germany and I'm pretty proud to support the German .NET community with the speaker bureau.

I'm working as a software developer, consultant and trainer at the YooApplications AG in Basel (Switzerland).

Along with family and job, I'm writing articles in .NET Magazines and posts in this blog about ASP.NET, .NET, web technologies and the .NET community. I'm also leading a .NET user group in Basel. From January 2007 until November 2015 I was also leading the .NET user group Konstanz-Kreuzlingen
