About Michael Baierl
Right now I’m with the IBM Corporation and since 2012 I am working within the Global Business Services Unit in Austria on customer projects.
Before that I worked 6 years as Corporate Webmaster for ibm.com. The team I was working with is responsible for 109 country portals across the globe, maintaining 100% portal availability . My focus as UI Team Lead has been the HTML template, the shared CSS and common Dojo code on ibm.com providing common features and design to all IBM pages on the Internet and Intranet. I have also been responsible for the ibm.com Mobile Portal, some internal productivity tools based on PHP/MySQL and tons of other small tools and scripts related to www.ibm.com.
Prior joining IBM I studied Information Technology at the University of Applied Sciences in Wr. Neustadt – a very broad education covering a lot of interesting areas like micro controllers, electrical engineering, databases, programming, project management and much more. During that time I worked as freelancer on Web and coding projects, most of them already Web-related.
I am an IBM Level 2 Certified IT Specialist as well as a Zend Certified Engineer.
In my personal time I study Hara Shiatsu, learn Yoga and Taijiquan or I drive around in the city with my Italian friend. As you can also see from articles and blog entries on this Website I love to travel to see the most beautiful and interesting parts of the world. I’m also an Apple freak and trying to convince everyone to switch over to the Mac, the iPhone and all other devices they have right now or will introduce in the future
