Hello, my name is Daniel Platz. I am a software engineer from Paderborn, Germany.

I work as a consultant & developer in the Java SE/EE space. I am a big fan of the Java ecosystem; started with Java 1.4 and user of Java EE since the J2EE days. Also, Web-technologies and JavaScript has been my steady companion. I have used a lot of frameworks over the years (including Knockout.js and Angular) but nowadays I prefer standards like ECMAScript >= 2015, CSS 3, HTML 5 and WebComponents over the next shinny JavaScript framework. I am most comfortable in a Linux environment. Bash/Zsh, Visual Studio Code and Eclipse are my productivity-tools. I have a lot of experience with application-servers like JBoss/Wildfly, Websphere (Traditional and Liberty) and Glassfish. Jenkins, Docker, Ant, Maven and Gradle have helped me for automation of any kind: builds, tests, deployments.

In my free-time, I also love coding; mainly Rust, Javascript and Java. If I am not doing techy stuff, I like to travel or be out in the nature; either by foot or cycling.
