Hi, I'm Marcus!

I am a software developer with a focus on frontend development, user interfaces and multimedia technology.
I know the web stack inside and out, especially frontend technologies such as React, Redux, Electron, Next.js & CSS.
Apart from that I have a strong interest in UX, an eye for good design and a guitar always near to my desk.

For the last few years I have mainly developed web apps, interactive exhibits and backend systems for museums and showrooms. Here you can see a selection of projects I most recently worked on.

You can reach me via mail github or linkedin

As part of the project team I implemented a digital guestbook and a POI system for the museums foyer.

Both are react and electron based applications with some special hardware and input devices attached. Being a museum covering the topic of blindness, the digital guestbook has text to speech and voice recording abilities. For the kiosk system in the foyer I did the integration of a photo booth feature as well as a donation system offering both a classic coin slot and contactless payment.

All tablets and exhibits are in the same exhibition network and communicate via mqtt with each other and a node-red backend.
