Hi, I’m Thomas

I’m a software developer and Microsoft MVP for Windows Development. I live in Germany’s Black Forest with my wife and our three daughters. In my spare time I like playing football, guitar, working out, and especially learning new tricks on my skateboard.


I’m passionate about technology. In my profession and also in my spare-time I like programming great solutions, like for example this Home-Security-System based on Microsoft-technologies.

Interested in and fascinated by user interfaces, I soon started elaborating an expertise in UI programming with XAML and so in WPF, UWP, and WinUI. I’ve authored several special interest books in my areas, including a handbook for Windows Presentation Foundation and a book about TypeScript. I’ve also authored popular video-courses for Pluralsight and several articles for the German Windows Developer magazine.

Since 2006 I work for a consulting company in Switzerland called Trivadis. I work as a trainer, consultant and developer in the fields of C#, .NET, XAML, UWP, TypeScript, Angular & Azure.
