About Johannes Schaback

Tech-Entrepreneur, Business Angel, Geek.

In more detail, Johannes
– started coding at the age of 16 (Basic and Pascal when it was still cool),
– loves computer science and made 3D graphics a hobby,
– quit his PhD in Machine Learning because he felt more like doing something entrepreneurial’ish than a researcher, but still follows up on recent trends in AI,
– realized early in his career that being an Engineer is very different to being an mangager. He actually struggels with the term “manager” and would prefer “enabler”. He developed deep interest in work methodologies for successfully delivering highly complex software projects,
– loves to share his experience regarding Digital Business and Machine Learning on conferences,
– loves coding, primarily Rust these days, a bit of Go and Kotlin, a tiny bit of Java and some C/C++ here and there and sometimes even JavaScript (but only on Tuesdays on a full moon)
– loves music (if you can call Punk Rock “music”)
– loves helping startups with tech related questions
– has about 40 Business Angel investments, some of them actually valuable,
– uses vscode as IDE, not vim or emacs, but learned to live with that his friends use IntelliJ
– is father of two wonderful sons, one daughter and husband to an even more wonderful wife
– used to run Arch but shamefully had to revert back to Windows for reasons,
– reads physics books in his free time, but hardly understands them
– is the biggest Star Trek fan in the known part of the universe
