It all started out with a popular face­book-group called Crazy Cool Web­sites, showcasing the most radi­cal, odd, viral and sur­prising sites and apps on the www. The community was founded by Michael Taschinski, Armin Unruh and Sebastian Zimmer­hackl and gained more than 10.000 mem­bers in just a few years.

I was extremely interested how these websites were built both from a conceptual and a technical perspective. That’s why i’ve founded the “Crazy Cool Developers” in 2015, another facebook-group intended to be the complementary “makerspace” of “Crazy Cool Websites”. Today the group is a full-grown community with more than 1600 members.

In 2018 we took the project a step further and created www.crazycooldevelopers.com to share interviews with exciting people from the scene. Furthermore we launch themed challenges and meetups at a regular pace to amplify the community-activities, both online and offline.

Berlin-based developer and entrepreneur Armin Unruh gives deep insights into his workflow behind his famous web-projects like the “Lay Theme” or the website for Meiré und Meiré.
