About Jens Nickel
Jens Nickel (born in 1969) studied physics in Stuttgart. Already in his early youth he was enthusiastic about the writing of technical articles; As an acknowledged fan of technical and scientific journals, he took the opportunity to turn his hobby into a profession with a further education as a specialist magazine editor. He worked as an editor for a Home Automation and a Photovoltaic magazine, before he joined Elektor in 2004. Since he himself is an enthusiastic programmer, he is primarily responsible as the responsible editor for the software-driven projects, preferably in the field of home automation and Internet of Things. In 2010 Jens Nickel succeeded Ernst Krempelsauer as chief editor of the German edition. In addition to programming, he also counts the production of (of course!) Electronic music to his hobbies.
