Christian Kruse

Welcome. On this page you can find my software projects, my articles, my notes and my pictures.

My name is Christian Kruse. I work as a software developer and system administator at Termitel GmbH. I live in Germany in a small town called Steinfurt.

I am passionate about software development, GNU/Linux, FLOSS as well as OS X. I am also a do-it-yourself apologetic: I did a lot of things in and around my house myself. I love the hacker culture. And last but not least I am a dog owner.

This is my personal replacement for Twitter, Facebook and the other data silos. My content is mine — so if you are interested in my activity, just have a look at this page.

    José Valim, inventor of Elixir, wrote an interesting blog post about the fallacies of web application performance. He writes about some common misunderstandings on this topic, including my favorite one: performance is only a production concern. Hint: it isn't!

    I stumbled upon an interesting article about choosing Elixir for the (healthiness) of the code and not because auf performance reasons.

    While I agree that performance alone is a bad reason to choose a tech stack I still think that performance is important. On the other hand expressiveness and effectiveness of the language are important as well. He makes a pretty good case.

    Christian Kruse,

    Although I'm not a Firefox user these days I have to say I'm impressed by their last release. After years of ignorance followed by years of „we're not that slow really“ they finally got noticeably faster. It feels much less sluggy and websites which were slow on the older releases now feel much more responsive. Kudos!
