Christian Waidner

I'm a software guy working in the embedded hardware business. I started out as a desktop software developer and coded for 15 years, did a decade of software consulting afterwards, translating between nerds and normal people and ended up in the embedded hardware business, always trying to make technology more accessible for everyone.

"Jack of all trades, master of none, but oftentimes better than master of one."

As a generalist I like to jump between different topics, learning about new things all the time and bringing this knowledge to use in new ways to find creative solutions. I'm at my personal best when moderating talks between bright minds and combining ideas with an open team.

I'm a metalhead playing drums and guitar for fun, listening to all kinds of heavy sounds on streaming of going to live acts. Ask me about music and I can talk forever. Like a true nerd I'm also into tabletop games and pen&paper roleplaying. In my holidays I like to scuba dive in warm waters and have a nice cool beer afterwards on the beach.
