In this monthly blog post I share all links, articles, videos, books, products or other things I liked in the month. This is a list of all the things I enjoyed in January 2020.
I work as Front-End Engineer at XING and contributed to a variety of products like Jobs, Mobile, Groups, Profile, SEO and Onboarding.
I love new ideas and helping innovate. I won the XING internal innovation award during the yearly Prototyping Days three times and took part in over 30 HackWeeks. One of my HackWeek projects got into a final product on the XING platform.
I love movies and TV shows. Most of my space on shelves is occupied by my books, that’s why I don’t own a lot of movies. But I regularly use LoveFilm, Netflix, Watchever and Amazon Prime. I love all genre, especially Action, Comedy, Sci-Fi and Fantasy, but no horror movies. This is my IMDb profile and my ratings.
I love books, to be precise I love paper books. I can not imagine a living room without shelves of books.
Most likly I inherited this passion from my grandfather, who owned over 4000 books. My books count roughly a 1000. I buy books ahead and my desks are always stuffed with unread books. I like classics, books about philosophy, martial arts, art & desgin, architecture, typography and novels.
Work-related books I read mostly digital, because they get old too fast and don’t look nice in most cases.
