About

I’m a seasoned software architect with over two decades of experience in computer science research and commercial software development. I’m also a passionate typophile and book lover, and I design print and ebooks in my spare time. Because I found no existing software useful, efficient, and intelligent enough for my needs, I’ve decided to build my own tools. My name is Jens Tröger, welcome to Bookalope!
