Philipp Garbe, Lead Software Developer at Scout24
Hero since 2018
Philipp works as a Lead Platform Engineer at Scout24 in Munich. As part of the Cloud Platform Engineering team, he's creating a cutting-edge cloud experience for Scout's builder teams through automated tooling and products. Before, Philipp was part of "Tatsu", a project that transformed the matured AutoScout24 IT setup into a nextgen Web-Scale IT platform.
He is driven by technologies and tools that allow him to deliver and release faster and more often. He expects that every commit automatically goes into production so it shouldn't be a surprise that he's excited about microservices, containers and cloud-native technologies. Affected by Pain Driven Development, he believes that things need to be changed whenever the pain is big enough.
Philipp had his first contact with AWS in 2013 and became addicted fast. He can be found talking at Meetups and Conferences mostly about topics around ECS and CloudFormation and his findings are also then shared on his blog. In addition, he is also a maintainer of the Amazon ECS plugin for Jenkins.
