Simplify your life

After 6 years being co-director and CTO of LaTe App-Developers, I feel it is time to make some changes.

It’s not that mobile development is no longer interesting to me, however after doing (too) many small (5-20 person days) iOS projects, I need some new challenges. Project work has been limiting my creativity and enforcing too much regularity in my daily routine. Besides, there’s hardly any room to do compelling software architecture work in projects of said size. You’re rather constantly working against the time in order to make some profit with those fixed-price projects.

This year I took three months off in order to decide on what to do next and finally, I have made up my mind. As per the end of this year, I’m resigning as co-director and CTO of LaTe. I will still be involved as freelance collaborator though in order to continue supporting our biggest client.

With the regained freedom, I plan to explore some new directions with regards to own apps and services. I need to catch up with what happened in (Embedded)-Linux and I also want to polish my almost rusty Python and Vala skills.

Last but not least, I’m not going to do 40 hours per week any more – instead I want to spend more time with my family.
