Welcome to the Programming Group! We are located at the University of St. Gallen (HSG) and have a branch at the Technical University of Darmstadt. Together we enjoy working on Programming Languages and Software Engineering, including languages and architectures for Distributed Systems, Reactive Programming, and Secure Software Systems.

Talk to us or join our group when you are interested in these topics or our work. Students at HSG or TU Darmstadt, please find our courses, theses, and HiWi offerings.
