About Florian Lier
My name is Florian Lier, I am a PhD Student at CITEC / Bielefeld University, Germany. To keep it short and simple: I am interested in nearly everything related to computer science — which is quite a pain sometimes. My interests range from various Unix-like operating systems to web technologies and distributed systems, from robotics and simulation environments to programming languages and dialects, software development, continuous integration and deployment and back to system engineering and human-robot interaction, TBC [...].
In the past three years, I have been focusing on the reproducibility aspect of software intensive robotics experiments. Please take a look at my list of publications for detailed information.
I hope you enjoy reading this blog and - of course - I hope it solves one or two problems.
In case you want to contact me, please check out this page
