Hi. I am Christian Manteuffel.
My primary interests are software architecture, engineering of software-intensive systems, architecture decisions, patterns (of all sorts), and simply good software design.
I am an experienced software designer and developer, with a strong background in Java and C#. I am the driving force behind several projects, worked as a freelance iOS developer and gained experience in Eclipse plugin development as an intern at the ITEMIS AG.
During my career, I have (co-)supervised various master, bachelor, and internship projects; gave lectures in software architecture and software patterns; and have worked as a teaching assistant in multiple bachelor and master-level courses.
I am member of the following associations: IEEE Computer Society, ACM, DAV (German Alpine Club)
Since 2013, I am pursuing my Ph.D. at the University of Groningen under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Paris Avgeriou.
2013, I received my Master of Science from the University of Groningen, The Netherlands defending a thesis titled Tool-support for Architecture Decision Documentation.
2013, I completed the Honours College Master Program Leadership: make a difference! of the University of Groningen, The Netherlands.
2011, I received my Bachelor of ICT from the Fontys University of Applied Sciences in Venlo, The Netherlands, defending a thesis titled: Requirements Traceability - Analysis, Design, and Implementation of a traceability solution for the Eclipse rich-client platform.
2010, I spend an exchange semester at the University of Bremen.
Since 2006, I am a system administrator at a property management firm.
