I work for Beckhoff Automation GmbH & Co. KG as product manager for automation software since approx 10 years.

My topics in this usinverse cover detailed product specification (like Eventlogger, Realtime TCP/UDP communication…), leading development groups, market analysis but also more general topics like open-source handling, security-realted topics and being an contact person from TwinCAT for branches like the process industry.
