ACM ICPC

In 2010, I was privileged to serve as a judge in the ACM ICPC South African Regional Contest.

Since 2003 I have been involved in the participation of the Universität Karlsruhe (TH) in the ACM International Collegiate Programming Contest. These preparations have lead to the ACM ICPC Praktikum.

GI InformatiCup

Since its first incarnation in 2005 the GI InformatiCup has become ever more popular. I devise problem sets and judge submissions.

In 2014 the final was hosted by the Hasso-Plattner-Institut in Potsdam, Germany. I was privileged to deliver the opening speech and laudation for the finalists. Congratulations to the winning team.

University of Stuttgart

It is with great pleasure that I cosupervise master theses that are being conducted at the University of Stuttgart. Covered topics include automatic bug finding, software recommender systems, and combinations of repository and process mining.

Esslingen University of Applied Sciences

In January and March/April 2009 I delivered a data structures and programming course at Esslingen University of Applied Sciences. The 36 90-minute classes were largely based on Andrew Troelsen's brilliant Pro C# 2008 book.
