stupid layout fix

Stefan Wille


I am a software developer, and I work with JavaScript, TypeScript, React.js, and Node.js. Since 2012 I live in Berlin.

My professional career started in 1996. This gives me more than 24 years of experience.

In my first Job, I joined Netlife. I became Netlife's vice president of product development and stayed until after their IPO.

In 2009, I cofounded Balao, the company who built GratisPay, and worked as its CTO. We sold Balao in 1/2010 to Fyber.

From 2010-2013 I was CTO and cofounder of Papersmart GmbH.

Today I work as a freelancer.

Areas of Interest

I am most interested in

  • TypeScript / JavaScript / React.js / Node.js
  • Domain Driven Design (DDD)
  • Better ways of working together, clean code, self organization, automated testing
  • Agile development


I have written two books:

  • The first book is Go To JavaServer Pages. Addison Wesley published it in 2001. At the Amazon page you can find an overview and reader reviews

  • My second book is Spring and Hibernate. It introduces Spring and Hibernate, and how these two technologies play together in a typical project. Please see Amazon's page. Hanser published the second edition in April 2008.
