Phillipp Piwowarsky, Blockchain Engeneer, Aeternity
Philipp Piwowarsky studied Mediainformatics at LMU Munich and has a great passion for developing well-engineered software, with clean code and by following agile methods. He is a long time Blockchain enthusiast and is always eager to learn everything possible in the space.
He gained his software development experience by working in inspiring teams and projects for three years, engaging in many side projects and some open-source and non-profit activities. He is happy to have converted his hobby — blockchain technology — into his full-time job.
Philipp is fascinated by Blockchain since it is the first technology that enables finding consensus in a trust-less environment. The interesting thing about this is the large number of sectors in the global economy that will be affected. He loves the idea of having inclusive payment systems that enable everybody in the world to take part without discrimination.
Philipp believes that a future of commercially successful blockchain technology will enable better privacy, empower individuals, alleviate and even eradicate corruption and create a more egalitarian global society. His work for æternity allows him to gain new valuable skills in leading a team and manage a project as well as in-depth experience in implementing blockchain systems. According to him, the goal for the Elixir team is to gain blockchain-related knowledge, which will allow the developers to innovate by themselves. This will be achieved by experimenting with many different technologies and in a wide spectrum of fields.
Philipp will be lecturer on Blockchain Developer Workshop for Aeternity blockchain.
