Henning Glatter-Götz



My core competency lies in Back-End development that started out with building search optimized database systems for the Telco industry using C++ and has transitioned into developing a variety of PHP backed systems for a rapidly growing medical company. I am enthusiastic about API technologies and am interested in standardization efforts such as JSON-API. I contribute to a number of open source projects and also maintain a few of my own. Recently I started co-hosting two podcasts and started speaking at user groups and conferences.
