I help product teams create low-maintenance Python software in the Cloud Michael Seifert Software Engineer
Maintenance activities such as functional extensions, customizations, or error corrections make up the majority of the costs of a software. I make sure that these maintenance costs are kept low in the long run to avoid expensive software rewrites.

Are you operating a software system that fails to meet the existing availability or performance requirements? KPIs are looking bad, the system is getting slower by the day, and the IT support is flooded with tickets.
Are you developing a software solution that just doesn't take off? Development progress is unexpectedly slow, even though the teams are working hard to meet deadlines.
Do you want to develop a new, low-maintenance solution to ensure none of the above will happen?
If you answered “yes” at least once while reading the above, chances are high that I can support you.
