In the past I have been published in a number of areas. These days I limit myself to writing roleplaying games and publishing them once in a while. Basically you can separate my business related publications (including conference presentations) from my scientifical publications (mostly for my Ph.D.) and finally from my private publications relating to my various hobbies. Below you will also find publications where I helped as an editor or rule tester (or something like that).

Business Publications & Conference Appearances

Most of my business publications center on the Spring framework and its positive effects on Java Enterprise development. My company – QuinScape – is one of the few Premier Systems Integration Partners for SpringSource, the original company behind the Spring framework. Additionally QuinScape drives the OpenSAGA project – the first (and so far only) german open source project striving to provide a SAGA compliant and Java based development platform for web based applications.

Scientific Publications

My scientific publications usually are concerned with highly specialized topics regarding new synergistic approaches for more efficient software development techniques and related framework aspects.

Hobby Publications

My hobby references usually pertain to roleplaying games and rules supplements since I am highly fascinated by all game design aspects relating to this genre of games. Don’t take some of these things too seriously – I did it for the money (excuse me, money? not in that business – it’s just for fame and honor). I consider Maddrax: Reloaded so far to be my crowing achievement and plan to release more roleplaying games in the future via
