Development of a Relocation Notification in a Customer Portal

Up to now, reporting relocations has been an analog process and does not fit in with the company’s strategic digital orientation. Read here how it was solved.

Nicolas is an innovative software developer who excels with his customer and solution-oriented work.
Over the past four years, Nico has worked with me on the new and further development of the LEW Group’s websites and private customer portal. Nico was responsible for the creation of scalable concepts for connecting the backend systems and the technical implementation of interfaces to other systems such as SAP. In addition to his extensive technical skills, Nico showed particular pleasure in teaching and a talent for communicating highly complex technical content in a natural language, which made him a valuable member of the cross-functional team and a very committed training officer for the IT trainees at LEW.


Nicolas was a very helpful and reliable colleague and the collaboration with him was always cooperative and result-oriented. I would therefore recommend him.

Thanks to his excellent comprehension skills, he always familiarized himself with new areas of responsibility extremely quickly, was versatile and always had a complete overview of even the most difficult contexts. Nicolas Wazulek always showed a high level of initiative and always identified fully with his tasks and our company. His great enthusiasm should be particularly emphasized. Even in situations with a high workload, he always proved to be particularly resilient.

Nicolas Wazulek acted calmly, deliberately, purposefully and with the utmost precision at all times. At the same time, he consistently impressed with his high quality of work, both in terms of quality and quantity. Nicolas Wazulek was always characterized by his extraordinary reliability.

Volunteering

Part of my doings is the participation as volunteer.

As an examiner since December 2023 at the Swabian Chamber of Industry and Commerce (IHK Schwaben), I take care of the intermediate and final exams for trainees in Computer Science Expert Application Development and Computer Science Expert Data & Process Analysis.

My Professional Experience in the Industry

Current

Freelance Information Technology Lecturer / Mischok Academy / November 2023 – Present

As a freelance lecturer, I train new IT specialists and developers to counteract the shortage of skilled workers. I always teach the basics of the profession with a focus on practical application.

Freelance Software Engineer Backend (C#/.NET) / niwadev / April 2022 – Present

In the backend, I develop with C# and the current, cross-platform .NET version. With my extensive expertise in the development of REST API microservices or gRPC endpoints, I help my customers to develop future-proof solutions. By using message bus systems (e.g. Azure Service Bus) via the NServiceBus framework, I model processes in such a way that they can be repeated in the event of an error. The integration of Azure SaaS services ensures better scalability and simpler development. To store information, I use the NoSQL database Azure Cosmos DB or relational databases such as MSSQL or MySQL. In the cloud environment, the containerization of services has become indispensable. Therefore I use Docker.
