Community : : Amiga-News.de Advent Calendar
Posted By: Primax. on 2022/11/29 15:44:08
Amiga-News.de asked developers and programmers for a little anecdote for an advent calendar. So from December 1st until Christmas in sometimes shorter, sometimes longer texts you will read about their Amiga beginnings, first successes and experiences from their creative wealth and little incidents to smile or even to think about. And of course also one, maybe two ;) MorphOS developers are involved. A big thank you to all who participated!

    Interesting that #12's name is represented by a single initial, and #4 has hyphenated initials.
    Anyway, my guesses:

    #01 AK: Andreas Kleinert - wrong guess, it's Achim Kern
    #02 DJ: Daniel Jedlicka - correct guess
    #03 JL: Jürgen Lucas - wrong guess, it's Joerg van de Loo
    #04 A-T: ??? - it's Apollo team (which would be abbreviated without hyphen in English)
    #05 DB: Dennis Boon - wrong guess, it's David Brunet (developer? programmer?)
    #06 MB: Mike Battilana - wrong guess, it's Matthias Böcker (have him in brackets below, though)
    #07 CZ: ??? - it's Christian Zigotzky (developer? programmer?)
    #08 DM: Daniel Müßener - correct guess
    #09 JS: Jörg Strohmayer - wrong guess, it's Jérôme Senay
    #10 ES: Edgar Schwan - correct guess
    #11 AF: Andreas Falkenhahn - wrong guess, it's Alain Fontanin (have him in brackets below, though)
    #12 P: ??? - it's Prince^Phaze101
    #13 RK: Roman Kargin - wrong guess, it's Richard Körber (have him in brackets below, though)
    #14 EH: Erik Hogan - correct guess
    #15 DP: Dimitris Panokostas - wrong guess, it's Dennis Pauler
    #16 GB: Gunnar von Boehn - wrong guess, it's Günter Bartsch (have him in brackets below, though)
    #17 TC: Thomas Claus - correct guess
    #18 MS: Michal Schulz - wrong guess, it's Marcus Sackrow (have him in brackets below, though)
    #19 OR: Oliver Roberts - correct guess
    #20 RS: Robert Smith - correct guess
    #21 FW: Frank Wille - correct guess
    #22 JP: Jacek Piszczek - correct guess
    #23 GS: George Sokianos - correct guess
    #24 MR: Mark Ritter - wrong guess, it's Michael Rupp (have him in brackets below, though)

    (other developers with fitting initials that come to mind: Jürgen Lachmann, Matthias Böcker, Jens Schönfeld, Eric Schwartz, Alain Fontanin, Alfred Faust, Richard Körber, Dino Papararo, Günter Bartsch, Georg Braun, Marcus Sackrow, Mike Stirling, Marek Szyprowski, Matthias Scheler, Ralph Schmidt, Fredrik Wikström, Janne Peräaho, Matthias Rustler, Michael Rupp)


    Edit: successive assessment of the guesses

    I thought of him too, but I think he neither is nor considers himself a developer or programmer as he describes his activity as doing "first level Linux support at A-Eon". But maybe the amiga-news.de team interprets these terms rather broadly.

    Indeed, Achim Kern somehow eluded me, despite the fact that I played through his game "Taran im Abenteuerland" a decade ago.

    I'm not an application programmer, but perhaps Daniel from Amiga-News.de think I'm a "web" developper. :-)
