Hello. My name is Christoph Sassenberg. I do stuff with computers, mostly around the web. I hold a master's degree and its old hermannic counterpart "Diplom" in computer science, if you are into that sort of thing.
After more than 10 years of commercial software development, I have gained valuable experience in programming, architectures, software development methodologies, and delivering customer value.
If you would like to contact me, you can do so by using "mail" at this very domain name.You can also find me on:
