My name is Sven Lange and I am working for itemis as an IT Consultant and Coach.

Fascinated and involved with the web since the mid-nineties. Studied Computer Science at Fachhochschule Furtwangen in Black Forest.

My main interest is in building web and middleware applications running on the Java virtual machine (JVM) and Open Source technologies including all the buzz around those. Besides I enjoy playing with new programming languages and design software systems.

I like to craft software in agile environments practicing extreme programming techniques.

Elsewhere on the web: GitHub, LinkedIn, Twitter, Xing
