Hello! I'm Thorsten.

I work remotely as a software engineer for Zed. Before that I spent nearly 5 years at Sourcegraph.

I wrote and self-published two books you might have heard of.

You can also find me on Twitter, Mastodon, GitHub, LinkedIn, XING and Facebook.


Never hesitate to send me an email at I love getting email from you.
