My name is Matthias and I'm a Web Developer living in Vienna, Austria.
As a developer my goal is to build accessible and robust web experiences by following the "keep it simple"-approach.
My personal interests are climate and social justice.

In my personal time I enjoy blogging, learning and discussing web development approaches with others in the field of Open Source. I'm interested in bridging the gap between a good developer experience (DX) and a good editor and user experience (UX).
My general interests are climate and social justice. I am devastated about the current state of the climate emergency - which is massively threatening the well-being of future generations.
I'm a huge fan of green mobility via Klimaticket Austria! 🥰 Want to go for trip without a car? Check out Zuugle, Bahn zum Berg & more.
