Hi, i am Tobias Banaszak, 27 years, living in Aachen. On this page, you will find some information about me, what i do for living and what i do in my spare time. Scroll down to the bottom to find many ways to get in touch.
According to my profile on last.fm die Ärzte and Wir sind Helden are apparently my favourite bands. Most of the music i really like is in german and made with guitars and drums. I listen to podcast really often. Check out my subscriptions.
I like shooting with my Canon EOS 600D. Over the years, i got a representable collection of good lenses. Sometimes i put some of the pictures on flickr.
In my spare time, i like indoor climbing and geocaching. Every trip to a new city comes with a huge bunch of paper with instructions to find geocaches and new, interesting places in foreign cities. This gives really good insights without doing a guided tour like everyone else.
The application, written during my master thesis, runs on iOS-devices. Through this time, i really got to know objective-c. Afterwars i have to say, that i really like the concepts and handling of this language. It may be my favourite.
The tool i wrote for my bachelor thesis used all the benefits of the modern C#-language. I like it, because the usage is compared to C or C++ less painfull.
Java was the most common language at university. While working at a young startup in Aachen, i was responsible for the java-enterprise system build with JSF, JPA (Hibernate) and Seam.
Due to many documents that had to be written at university and afterwars, i am very familliar with LaTex. There is a boilerplate-version of the layout i created for my master thesis on github.
In 2008, i started studying Computer Science at FH Aachen University of Applied Sciences. My thesis was about SNMP and networking infrastructure and written in C#.
The bachelor's degree included an internship. In this 24 weeks, i worked at Philips Research Lab Aachen and coded C# and C++ for the medical imaging software IMALYTICS.
After this, i completed my university education with a master’s of engineering degree in Information Systems Engineering late 2012. The master's thesis was about a context-aware mobility-app on iOS.
Between march 2012 and january 2013, i've been part of the research project ec2go. It is about e-mobility and new ways of dealing with the requirements and usage of this technology. I was in charge of the iPhone app and the RoR backend. I also did some research on how to create a good user-interface for in-car applications.
In february and march 2013, i worked as leading software engineer coding Java Server Pages and JavaEE at a little startup in Aachen-Herzogenrath. Unfortunately, we had to leave this company, because of missing funding. A very common problem at startups.
Since april 2013 i work at FH Aachen in an reasearch project at faculty of aerospace-technology. My task is to write a ground-control-software in Qt that will be used by the field test operators in antarctica.
