About

Welcome,

I am Christof, a computer scientist based in Hamburg, Germany.

I always struggled deciding in which language(s) I should publish this site...
As I have two native languages (German and French) but most of the world population would rather choose English,
I am really getting tired of always translating stuff. So this time, I decided to provide only one language, English.
If you're not ok with this, you may not be able to read this anyway, so...

All others, enjoy!

Mousse-T Website

August, 2009

For the new Mousse-T website, we integrated our tellMe system: a gateway between Flash (ActionScript 3) and PHP. tellMe is based on AMF (Action Message Format) and enabled us to build a system that allows users to record a video message on the page, save it in a gallery and send it to a friend. tellMe was used for nearly all projects which implied a strong backend for the Flash frontend.
