My name is Sven Lange and I am working for itemis as a Software Developer and Architect. Since the mid-nineties I am fascinated and involved with the World Wide Web. I have studied Computer Science at the Fachhochschule Furtwangen in Black Forest. In my day to day work I am building web and middleware applications running on the Java virtual machine (JVM) mainly with Open Source technologies. Besides I enjoy playing with various programming languages and their concepts.
