Why every developer should care about the environment
Based in Düren, Germany, near Cologne, Manuel Carrasco Molina, better known as StuFF mc, started programming with his C64 at age 11 in 1987. He entered professional software development in 1997 and has been developing since. He founded the first French podcast about Apple in 2005 and dove into iOS development at the launch of the SDK in 2008, after spending the first half of his developer career in the Microsoft technologies. He ran ObjCGN.com/SwiftConf.com from 2012 to 2017 which he then handed over to move to further challenges. When he's not developing for the Apple Platforms Stuff is an involved activist and/or local politician (at the city and regional council) in the matters of environment (Hambach & Dannenrod Forest, Ende Gelände, Parents for Future...) and refugees — he spent a few times in east european countries helping his brothers and sisters. In fact, he now thinks of himself way more as a politician than a coder, having not worked 5 days a week as a developer since 2015. Stuff's mother tongue is French, but he also speaks fluently German, English and Spanish, while speaking a bit of Dutch, Arabic and Italian.
