About Robert Möstl
My name is Robert Möstl, I'm from Styria (Austria), and I run a solo business called Scaling Curve since 2016.
I build and maintain web applications for small to mid-sized businesses in Austria.
From 2016 to 2019, I also focused on data visualization. It is still fun, but building web-based business applications is even more fun. Today, data visualization is simply a part of my job to build great web apps.

For a collection of personal side projects take a look at tools.

What are yoda conditions?
A yoda condition is a programming expression in which the elements
are interchanged compared to their more intuitive, natural order. For
if (5 == count) instead of
if (count == 5).
It's like when Yoda would say "if strong is the force" instead of
"if the force is strong".
I first came across this term in Jeff Atwood's blog post
Programming Jargon. Yoda conditions can be pretty useful.
For example, I like to use
if ("".equals(str)) to avoid
a NullPointerException in Java in case
