About Christoph Heindl

Vita(Latin word for “life”) can refer to a brief biography. One can expect a vita to unfold its story gradually according to a set pattern.

I am a professional software developer and enthusiast living in Austria/Europe. I did my studies at the university of applied sciences in Hagenberg and promoted in computer science in 2004.

Straight after promotion I joined the robotics and vision department of Profactor GmbH to develop a novel partial matching and object recognition framework. Since then I’ve worked on numerous international research and industrial projects as lead project manager and/or software developer.

Since 2010, I devote parts of my spare time to the studies of business administration and economics at the university of Hagen/Germany.
