Hi, I am Constantin, a WordPress and Open Source enthusiast from Germany. I have built websites of many shapes and sizes. Since 2015, I work at Automattic as a WooCommerce Happiness Engineer. My learning goals at the moment are Javascript, Ruby, Bash and WordPress and WooCommerce plugin development . On my kindle you will currently find “Thinking fast and slow”, “Blind Spot”, “A Smarter way to learn Javascript” and “A checklist Manifesto”. When I am not improving the world with Automattic and Woo, I read, study, blog, travel with my girlfriend, play with Ableton Live, contact juggle, visit the gym or hit the dance floor at my favourite venues. These days I am located in Berlin, Germany. Besides my job and my hobbies, my favourite conversation topics are the art of communication and negotiation, personality types and traits and human development. I am a big fan Derren Brown, because he explores the aspects of what it means to be human like no other and admire the work of Friedeman Schulz von Thun and Susan Caine.
