Hey there, I’m Andreas 👋  Welcome to my digital garden 🌱 I like building things, and I’m currently helping to build the future of Celonis.

In my free time, I enjoy drinking coffee, hanging out with my friends, and experiencing arty stuff.

I do some reading and writing as well, albeit not as consistently, but I’m working on being better at that.

Prepare for your interview

July 29, 2023

When you're interviewing for a software engineering role, you'll likely face both technical and behavioral interviews. To prepare for these interviews, you can use resources like The Tech Interview Handbook, The System Design Primer, and Leetcode. For behavioral interviews, the Amazon STAR answer format and mock interviews are helpful. Be sure to research the company and practice your answers to common interview questions. And most importantly, be yourself!

Axis- plus Content-based Control for Camera Drones: Design and Evaluation of User Interface Concepts

June 10-15, 2018

It takes movie camera operators years of professional training to follow an object in an aesthetically pleasing way, both by classical means (boom, slider) and by drones. As this complex task requires a high workload and situation awareness while controlling the camera, an uncluttered and efficient user interface (UI) is preferred. The emergence of mobile devices and motion control devices incorporating automation made touch-based UIs attractive to operators. Much work has already been done on UI adaptation strategies. However, little work is trying to solve the problem of combining manual control and automation within a UI. Especially with a central premise of minimising occlusion and visual clutter in a cinematic context. We, therefore, conducted a first user study (N=15) to evaluate different design alternatives regarding occlusion and preference. Afterwards, we created a functional prototype of the most promising design. To further reduce the occlusion we applied a progressive reduction adaption strategy. We evaluated the influence of different reduction levels on workload, control, creativity support and precision in a second user study (N=24). While we could reduce the clutter, due to our design decisions we found no negative effects affecting the measured variables.
