Augmented Reality bei der Deutschen Bahn

Google Glass

Einen größeren Gegensatz als Augmented Reality und Deutsche Bahn konnte ich mir vor kurzem kaum vorstellen.

Am letzten Dienstag war ich beim Webgrrls Treffen in Frankfurt. Die Verbindung ist ganz einfach. Ich wohne ja momentan (heute letzter Tag) bei der @android_oma. Die ist Mitglied bei den Webgrrls im Rhein Main Gebiet ( und dieses Mal tagten sie im Skydeck der Deutschen Bahn. Das Skydeck befindet sich im 30. Stock des Deutsche Bahn Gebäudes in Frankfurt und der Blick ist eindrucksvoll!

I joined the #jCycle #Joomla Challenge

Last week I joined the Joomla #jcycle challenge! It’s a kind of charity for the Joomla project.

Cycling is a great way to raise money for charity. Our season sponsor joins this effort and donates by tradition 1 cent for every km ridden.

If you like Joomla! and cycling, and you want to do something good, here is your chance!

I like #joomla and since Oktober 1th I have to commute from Bad Homburg to Frankfurt. Each ride is about 20km, which means 20 Euro Cents for the Joomla project.

The jCycle challenge happens on Endomondo, a platform to track your rides. Unfortunately I use Strava, so I thought it was not possible to join the challenge. But Radek Suski had an idea:


So I did!

This month I contributed 632 km …

which means, that the Joomla project will receive 6,32 Euro more. If it’s possible, I take a photo every day and tweet it


And I’m already at place 25 – I’m so proud!

Even your are (like me) a little bit late to the party, the challenge lasts until the end of 2016, so join us!

During the last 13 years the world has changed and it was interesting for me to hear stories about different types of smartphones, smartwatches, phone contracts and gadgets like the Yota Phone 2.

News! I’m working as a Drupal Developer in Germany

The summer was wonderful. We finished the restoration of a house in the middle of July and we wanted to enjoy some weeks at the beach. As you know, we are Germans and there seems to be some truth in all these stereotypes about Germans, they always make plans 😉 So we did, we made a list about how we wanted to spend our “free” time. The plan was to work a few hours on projects that should be finally finished, like the green roof project in the garden, the Cave in 22 Grand’ Rue, some “little” things in our house …
