Ingo Karkat

Greetings! I'm a professional software developer and geek born in the home computer age, living in Germany with a lovely daughter and my Japanese wife, in a small house that I (partially) built myself.

I prefer to grow software (constructing is the wrong metaphor) organically, test-driven and clean, with a lot of automation and supporting tools, which are best shared and collaboratively improved as open source. Like gardening, you need to take a long-term view, consider the seasons and surroundings to write beautiful, lasting applications.
