My name is Andre Steingress, I'm based in Linz, Austria.
I am passionate about working on server-side applications using Groovy, Scala or other JVM-based programming languages. My past works was largely in the Java field, so I have experiences with a bunch of frameworks, libraries and servers in this cosmos ;-) Think NoSQL, Hibernate, Spring Framework, JEE, Apache Solr, Elastic Search, Grails and a bazillion of libraries that I had to use every now and then.
I am project lead of GContracts - a Design by Contract extension for Groovy, committer to the Groovy programming language and engaged in many other open-source stuff I care about.
My daily job is being CEO and software maintenance expert at AppCare, a company specialised in software maintenance, performance analysis and software migration.
As of 2013, I am host of the Donau Tech Radio" (DTR) podcast, together with Thomas Einwaller. DTR is a periodically published podcast in German about software engineering, gadgets and other geek stuff.
I regularly blog and write articles for JavaMagazin (Germany), GroovyMag (US), Java Journal (US).
