We asked Fabian a few short questions –
What are you most proud of?
My kids 🙂 As a developer: Continuous self-improvement. I am proud not to be proud of yesterdays code today.
Who do you most admire in your career?
One of the most inspiring people I met in the Magento world is Vinai Kopp, earlier in his role as Magento guru, recently again because he encouraged me to think out of the box, and to create a new modern style of Magento module development. A great person and great teacher.
Why did you want to get involved in Mage Titans UK 2016?
Ever since I saw the announcement of the first Mage Titans and later watched the videos, I knew this was a great conference that I have to attend at some time. I liked the focus on high quality developer topics and the line up of well known names in the Magento community. Now being on the list by myself is a great honor and I’m looking forward to share my experiences there.
Many thanks to Fabian for stopping to answer these questions, we are really excited.
Take it easy Mage Titans.
