About me


I am Simon Hennes, 29 years old and I live near Ulm. On this page I would like to intro­duce myself and what I do for a living.

Since the begin­ning of my appren­tice­ship in 2011, I have been work­ing in the field of elec­tri­cal engi­neer­ing and automa­tion tech­nol­o­gy. After my appren­tice­ship, I stud­ied at the Uni­ver­si­ty of Applied Sci­ences in Con­stance major­ing in com­put­er sci­ence. Since April 2020, I have been work­ing as a soft­ware devel­op­er for embed­ded sys­tems for a con­struc­tion machin­ery manufacturer.


Among oth­er things, I have knowl­edge in the fol­low­ing areas:

  • Mod­el-based soft­ware devel­op­ment in scade (for­mer­ly Lus­tre) with SCADE Suite
  • Imple­men­ta­tion of Con­tin­u­ous Inte­gra­tion sys­tems with Jenk­ins and Python
  • Design and devel­op­ment of web appli­ca­tions using script­ing, text descrip­tion and data­base lan­guages like PHP, JavaScript, HTML and SQL (see sportbootapp.de, ROPS)
  • Devel­op­ment of apps for Android in the pro­gram­ming lan­guages Java or C# with the devel­op­ment envi­ron­ments Android Stu­dio or Xam­arin (Visu­al Studio)
  • Devel­op­ment of graph­i­cal user inter­faces with the frame­work Qt and the devel­op­ment envi­ron­ment Qt Creator
  • Imple­men­ta­tion of IoT soft­ware solu­tions on Unix based oper­at­ing systems
  • Pro­gram­ming of pro­gram­ma­ble log­ic con­trollers using ST, AWL, FUP, KOP with the devel­op­ment envi­ron­ments STEP7, TIA Por­tal and CODESYS
  • Imple­men­ta­tion of con­tent man­age­ment sys­tems like Word­Press (see einmalkubaundzurueck.de, musikverein-neufra-donau.de)
