Stefan Adolf

LOCADI | Berlin

Talking About: How to survive the first weeks as a developer in a fast growing startup?

After founding and successfully exiting his own startup in 2008 Stefan went on looking for bigger adventures.

An excursion to the corporate world at Samsung SDS Europe lead Stefan back to the Berlin startup scene in 2012 where he tried - and failed - to start up a social storytelling venture.

He then decided to put his energy into two startup companies that care about data collection and comparison technology where he concentrated on fullstack development, legacy migration processes and hybrid mobile apps. Today Stefan works as lead developer for medical and health product comparison platforms within the Check24 family.

Matthias Gronwald

Turbine Kreuzberg | Berlin

Talking About: How to make a brilliant software architecture

Matthias Gronwald is a Technical Director at Turbine Kreuzberg in Berlin.

Working with the web for more than 15 years he has spent his professional time with all kinds of stuff beginning with forging static websites, customizing CMS's and shop systems, integrating numerous 3rd party APIs usually poorly crafted and even poorer documented, administering and maintaining physical and virtual infrastructure, implementing deployments and scribbling system architectures.

Lately most of his time he is trying to make a sense out of clients requirements and translate them into developer speech. Being a developer by education he would consider himself more of a problem solver.
