Dipl.-Inf. (FH) Luca Hofmann
I am a freelance software developer with a focus on Android- and Web-Applications. I started to write small programs with about 14 years on my Commodore 64. A few years later I decided to study computer science to become a professional software developer.
I work with technologies that help me find solutions for my needs like Android SDK, AngularJS, WebGL, Unity3D, .Net, OpenGL ES, libGDX, nodeJS and others. Of cause I am using developer tools like git and jira etc. If you worked with many different technologies it is easier to understand another.
I always try to find easy solutions to reduce complexity and write well structured, solid software with a focus on code quality. These points are important to take responsibility of the work that I do.

Tribal Wars 2 App
The Android version of Tribal Wars 2 is a game with an intensive use of client/server communication, complex UI elements, in-app payment, analytics, push notifications etc. I worked on many parts of the project like the development of a UI framework on top of the Android SDK and the communication and synchronization with the game servers. Beside that I worked on developer tools to make the game compatible with many devices. The app has millions of downloads today (Google Play Store).
