Arne Christian Beer

Hi,


My name is Arne Beer. I am currently studying for my bachelor's degree of computer science while living and working in Hamburg.

I professionally work as a web developer since three years, holding roles as back-end and front-end developer.
As an open source enthusiast, I also like to build useful software such as command line tools and game develop libraries.

I worked both in several teams of a quite big company and as a freelancer in a small startup, which taught me to navigate corporate hierarchies as well as working in a small dynamic team without a dedicated project manager.
Team communication and self-organization are crucial skills I quickly learned and came to appreciate quite often later on.

Working on many private and professional projects, I became acquainted with numerous different technologies and paradigms, which gave me a good overview of modern technologies and trends.
Best practices such as version control, a good deployment pipeline and style guides are a necessity.
Code has to be well documented, tested and easy to read.

In addition to plain programming, I am also very interested in infrastructure management in the form of continuous integration and Unix server administration.

In my leisure time I like visiting events like the Chaos Communication Congress or the Global Game Jam to give new programming languages a shot or to learn about new technologies and to use the opportunity to test them at the same time. Collaborative programming with my friends is a welcome side effect.

All in all, I just love writing clean and performant software!

Private Projects

Pueue
A command queue for shells, written in Python.
Due to the lack of a nice scheduler for command-line instructions, I decided to make on on my own.
The software is now stable, for the most part tested and a small user base started to gather around it.
Lovetoys
A neat Entity Component System framework for game development with lua.
This is a project that grew over the past few years. It began as a simple piece of code in one of my games and became a stable library with 100% test coverage. If you are up to game development and interested in using a handy ECS, check out the project and give it a try.
Encarne
A project for automatic h.265 encoding of all video containers in a specified directory.
A small program which scans all video container in a specified directory and re-encodes them to using the new x265 algorithm.
It is reliable and tested on several hundred movies.
