After hiking to the top of Mt Rigi last weekend, today I have cycled around large parts of it (and oh so much more)!

99% Invisible is a super interesting podcast with stories about how design is part of and affects our everyday life. With episodes of about 20 minutes each, it's great for listening e.g. during commutes; you can find it at 99pi.org – the video below shows an example episode which the podcast's creator did as a TED talk.

Google's build tooling is pure pleasure. Now you can use it in your projects, too! 
 
Bazel is the build tool that Google has been using and has released as open source.

Having used the internal version of this for the past almost 4 years, I have to say I'm so thankful I can use this in my open source projects!

Time to put BUILD rules in cpp-netlib I think... :)

Ugh, next weekend I'll aim for a four hour ride, just to be on the safe side (the goal of +Strava's current challenge was 2 hours moving time, I've just barely missed it with today's ride (1hr 58min)). Let's hope the weather will be more suitable for cycling then.

On the plus side, I've got to see airplanes landing straight over my head today!

From my ongoing series "Switzerland is beautiful": hiking to Mount Rigi!
 
Starting out fairly easy and flat in Goldau, the trail got progressively steeper and less marked, but well worth the effort. It's about 8km to the top which took us a bit less than 3 hours (route: goo.gl/0q8wv1). Unfortunately it was very cloudy at the top, so the viewing distance was a bit limited :)

Today's ride went over the Ibergeregg pass, which is quite unforgiving at times. Along the way I realized (again) just how pretty Switzerland is. The photos don't do reality justice, you have to see it with your own eyes.

This ride marks my first pass, >100km ride and puncture in 2015! Looking forward to the next ones (well, except for punctures, I could get by without them :D).

My first proper bike ride in 2015: (briefly) visiting my home country Germany :) It was super windy, though, I think I've never had as much and as strong headwind as I did today.

Oh! Look whose code is being used here... :D 

My PanoMarker library made it into one of Google's promo websites for voice search, check it out yourself: www.google.fr/search/about (currently in French only as far as I know).

Here's the direct link to the open-source library if you want to use the marker class (or other addons) it in one of your projects as well:

Story
Introduction
I've recently finished my studies of Computer Science at RWTH Aachen University (Germany). In these studies, my focus during the last semesters was on Artificial Intelligence and Pattern Recognition. In fact, my Bachelor's thesis deals with Combined Language Models in the domain of Open-Lexicon Handwriting Recognition.

During Summer 2012 I've interned at the awesome Google+ Stream Team in Mountain View, where I was working on various new features and enhancements, such as beautiful new Checkin Posts. Soon, I will be joining Google full-time in order to work on many more shiny new things!

I love using Google services. From a developer's point of view especially the Google+ platform and the Google Maps API. If you're developing applications with the Maps API yourself, check out my GitHub repository where I share useful scripts that I created over time. 

In my free time, I'm writing all sorts of small applications. In particular, I developed the following two Chrome Extensions which will help enhancing your Google+ Experience:
The extensions are completely free and feedback is always welcome!
