About the site

This is my personal web site. It's been around since 1995.

About the name

Wittenburg is a German family name. Its bearers originate from a German town called Wittenburg. You can read about the name's origin in English here, or here in the original German.

Cape Town, January 2017

The personal stuff

I've lived on three continents, and have been to 31 countries (32 if you count Scotland). I'm fluent in three languages (slowly learning a fourth), have jumped out of aeroplanes, and experienced the end of the tail-end of the border war. There's titanium in my shoulder, amongst one or two other augmentations.

Personal interests include this web site, writing software, and building radio controlled trucks.

Favourite movies (sort by name or year)

Favourite cars (sort by name, year or value)

And if I could afford even half that list my daily driver would be a Giulia Quadrifoglio 😃

The professional stuff

I’ve been programming computers since 1986. I've worked for companies like EDS, Microsoft, and Nokia. I also speak at events about making software, being an IT architect, and technology consulting.


¹ I still write herds of code at home, but these days I consult. Enterprise architecture, operational management, IT strategy, security, identity and access management...
