A guest post by Emily Wachelka
Andreas works in the SDK team in the Munich offices, working mostly on new Metaio SDK features/bugfixes on all platforms, and giving support to customers (outside and inside the company ). After completing a dual study for a B.Sc. in Applied Computer Science at the DHBW in Stuttgart and with Hewlett-Packard, Andreas earned his M.Sc. in Informatics at the Technical University in Munich. Metaio is his first full time job, and according to him, he’s really enjoying it so far!
A Metaio working student and friend of mine recommended it to me, and upon having the choice between different companies, I opted for Metaio because I really liked the Augmented Reality topic and the future colleagues that I’ve previously met on the insideAR conference.
There are always new challenges in my work – absolutely no day is like the other. Plus there are a bunch of nice and fun people here!
I love to do sports, such as running and going to the gym. Whenever I have a little more time, I like to try new cooking recipes, especially cakes and casseroles.
I like the tradition of singing for people’s birthdays and special events, and wish them “luck and blessing” with a German song. Though I’m not sure if the choir is getting better or worse over time…
Maybe something like this?
Jack knew that he was interested in Augmented Reality ever since he learned how to read at age 25. Fast forward and Jack now works at center of the universe when it comes to AR: the offices of Metaio. How did he wind up here? We don’t know, but we have yet to find a legitimate excuse to get rid of him. In the meantime we let him work on the blog and run the Metaio US PR operations. When not talking and writing about AR technology, he can usually be found augmenting his reality by more traditional means down the local pub.
