Mein Studium geht bald zu Ende, wird allerhöchste Zeit dass ich endlich mal nen ordentlichen CV schreibe.
Was ist wichtig für nen guten Resume? * A resume is not a statement of facts. It’s a declaration of intent. * How a programmer reads your resume (comic) * Why I do my résumé in LaTeX * How to Write a Cover Letter that Gets Read by Jason Cohen * Joel Spolsky's Guerilla Guide to Interviewing * klml's CV * How to get a job at Google: Humility

The greatest thing about my profession is that it is also my dearest hobby. I get the best professional results when I do the job the way I personally enjoy it the most. The saddest thing about my profession is that I can rarely share my passion with people outside it. The beauty of the concepts we wield is usually not something the end user can relate to.
I am most passionate about the fundamental stuff: knowing how to get the last inch out of the standard library, mastering the challenges of concurrent and asynchronous programming, sharpening my awareness of the low-level details such as JIT compiler optimizations and the Garbage Collector.
I insist on having code which speaks for itself, code "optimized for reading" just as much as for performance, reliability and other machine-oriented values. Often when I debug, I take the preliminary step of rewriting code to make more sense. Many times the bugs disappear during this step, even those which hadn't been reported yet.
I love doing projects end-to-end, creating the vision of the end product with the customer and then bringing that vision to reality.
