I'm Matthias, a Backend Engineer located in Düsseldorf, Germany. My interests are scalability, performance and distributed systems.

I have an M.Sc. in Computer Science from Universität Bayreuth.
At work I improve the Backend infrastructure of trivago by making it faster and more reliable.

Nowadays I mostly use Python, PHP and Golang to get stuff done. Whenever I find the time I play with Rust, though.

I run Hello Rust as a side-project. It's a YouTube channel targeted at intermediate Rust programmers.

I'm an active member of the following usergroups:

At home I feel like riding my motorcycle, playing guitar in Rock bands and drinking hot chocolate. (In that order.)
