I’m Manuel Strehl, a true and thorough Bavarian web developer. And why, yes, I also own a Lederhose. Apart from dancing around some poles and Schuhplattling (ok, admitted, I never did that), I enjoy coding and developing good-looking, valid and usable web sites.
Apart from the day job I do my PhD at the University of Regensburg in media informatics. There, too, I received a Diploma, which is more or less equivalent to a Master, in Physics in 2007.
In most social networks and other places you will see my avatar to the left on my profile page. It depicts the donkey, Equus asinus, an animal, that comes surprisingly close to the ideal programmer, as Larry Wall describes him in his “Three Virtues of a Programer”. Boldewyn, the username I usually pick, is the name of the donkey in German fables.
