I’m Mario Ranftl.

A.k.a. majodev on The Internets.

I’m an Austrian IT professional who holds a master’s and bachelor’s degree in Information Management from FH JOANNEUM University of Applied Sciences. I speak both IT[1] and business[2] and currently live in Vienna, Austria.

This site is an experiment to write and ramble on about my life.

I’m currently work at all about apps as Head of Web Development[3]. API specs, scalable architectures, and neat looking apps are my daily business. In my spare time, I’m very much into Open Source collaboration. I love well tested and maintainable code. At the very moment, my language of choice is TypeScript, but I’ve also had a hell of a time with ActionScript 3, PHP, Java, C and many others.

Abstracting and optimizing lies in my very nature. Data modeling, applying design patterns, automating, testing and deploying is what I do and love. I am a reliable team player with excellent communication skills. Beware, I’m not a graphic designer, however I really enjoy working with those folks.

Apart from my professional life, I have a weakness for weird music[4], hot ‘n’ spicy food, beautiful beaches and indie games. Additionally I play the guitar (poorly) and also read alot. Be that as it may I really love programming, even in my freetime.
