A former captain and company commander in the German army, Wolfgang gained a university diploma as an educational scientist where he gained expertise in programmed learning and computer based training. In fact programming has been a key part of Wolfgang's life since he owned his first Commodore 64 in 1986. Progressing through the 8 bit platforms into 16 bit, he programmed for the Atari ST, before moving onto the PC format where his interest in train simulation really took hold.
As a free-lance programmer and consultant, Wolfgang was a lead developer in the Real Airport product which was commercially released by Just Trains in 2001 to critical acclaim. Wolfgang joined Just Trains after a 6 month consultation period in July 2001. He handles all German localisation and project manages specific products for publication. He also manages all customer support and website localisation for German speaking territories and brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the team, not only from a technical stand point but also from a cultural one.
Wolfgang continues to retain his key status as a member of the SimFlyers development team who produce shareware sceneries for Microsoft Train Simulator. His logic and experience is a valuable addition to the Just Trains product management team.
In 2009 he is Senior Development Manager for Just Flight.
