I'm Philip (rieckpil) and working as an independent software consultant from Berlin (Germany).
Apart from my freelance work, I'm running a blog and a YouTube channel to educate Java developers about #SpringBoot, #AWS, #Testing under the slogan Testing Java Applications Made Simple.
I'm convinced that testing can be joyful once you know the how.
Besides that, I'm one of the authors of Stratospheric - From Zero to Production with Spring Boot and AWS.
