Something about the English Writer
The English pages of osd.cad.de are currently (=Dec2017) under some re-constructions. For ⇒ details see below.
I started my graduate engineer workings in 1989 after my study in Hannover. During my jobs in the first two companies I have been the human interface between hardware and software development teams. Based on the orders of our customers I had to learn another programming language every 2..3 month since we implanted always the best fitting CPU (uController) into our products (if not already given by the customer). The smallest program I ever made was a hoover software, controlling the power (for 50Hz and 60Hz) in five ranges, checking temperature, the filling, and so on. 255 bytes used in 256 bytes ROM available. No, there is no digit missing and the unit 'byte' is correct, too.
Now the programs are much bigger. Since 1997 (about 20 years ago now) I changed my activities to the CAD area. From that time on wards I was working as a pure software developer.... and nearly at the same company for very long time.
Things were changing at CoCreate, mainly caused by PTC. So I changed the project within the company in 2009 together with a couple of long term colleagues. And we started in that new project with almost no project specific skills.
Four years later in year 2013 the R&D Team in Germany got finally and complete kicked out of the company by management decision. From that time onwards my curriculum vitae isn't as straight forward and regular as the 25 years before.
Me on CAD forums in the Internet
I joined the forums of cad.de several years ago (in 2003), but focused on the us/international forum at cocreateusers.org. Now I am also more active in the agile cad.de forums about CoCreate software. Many times I have read and giving help on the same topics in German and English, with some weeks in between.
What I have been missing is a good tool collection for the guys at cocreateusers.org and, of course I knew about osd.cad.de. So I raised my hand as a volunteer (round about October 2007) to create English written pages about all the amazing tools only offered in German language.
That way I became the co-writer of osd.cad.de.

The webmaster of osd.cad.de is still Matthias. He took over that website in Aug 2006 and improved the layout and the contents of course, too. Tools offered / announced in the German cad.de forums are taken over quite frequently into osd.cad.de inclusive description and a screen shot. So osd.cad.de is a continuously growing source of information on CoCreate programs. More information about him on his privat page, in German language of course.
