thoean.com is a personal collection of work, opinions, texts and funstuff from myself, Markus Thurner.
I am currently working as a software engineer based in the greater Zürich area in Switzerland.
Free minutes outside of work are dedicated to running, swimming, hiking, skiing, learning Spanish and a lot of family time. I’ve collected quite a few links on resources on how to learn languages and more specifically Spanish.
Software engineering skills
My education was focused on media technology and design. Eventually I ended up in the software engineering field. My professional experience is mostly backed by developing a few long term software products, whereas several smaller custom applications or consultancy added nice know how in various fields.
In the past few years I started building and leading teams while remaining a hands-on software engineer for most of my time. This allowed me to move to inspiring teams while getting deeply involved with writing microservices and serverless technologies.
