Speaker interview: Patrick Peschlow

We are introducing to you some of the speakers of the next Berlin Buzzwords conference 2015. Therefore, we are interviewing #bbuzz speakers ahead of the conference. See what they responded …

Get to know Patrick Peschlow.

How did you get started with developing software?
By itself nothing special: a programming class at school. But maybe it's interesting to hear about the first useful application I wrote back then: A database program to log the time I spent talking to my friends on the phone, and that allowed me to run various statistics on the data. I know it might sound ridiculous, but in fact I was a serious telephone addict at that time and had lots of fun crunching the data.

What would you like to accomplish by giving this talk?
That the audience will learn from mistakes I made.

Where can attendees meet you at the conference in order to ask questions?
A relatively young guy with grey hair - that's a combination that should be easy to find ;-)

What's your favourite beer?
There's no single favourite, but let me name a few that really stand out for me, in no particular order: Brinkhoff's No. 1 (Germany), Asahi (Japan), and San Miguel (Spain).

Have you been to Berlin before? What did you enjoy the most?
I've been to Berlin quite a few times already. On a private trip a few years ago I visited the a park called "Gärten der Welt", in Marzahn, which I enjoyed a lot.
