Bruhin Software is a freelancing company founded by Florian Bruhin and located in Winterthur, Switzerland.

I’m deeply involved in various open-source software projects. However, I’m pragmatic about it: I always believe in using the right tool for the job and the given circumstances.

Consulting, Training and Development

I’m an experienced software developer. My main focus is on consulting and trainings for the following technologies:

  • Python (since 2011 – Python basics, advanced Python features, many other topics)
  • Graphical user interfaces with PyQt and PySide / Qt for Python (since 2013)
  • Testing with pytest (since 2015)

Due to my expertise with Python, PyQt/PySide and pytest I’ve seen and experienced a lot of different use-cases and issues around those technologies. I’d be happy to help you getting started, helping you out if you’re stuck or help you follow best practices!

I’ve given trainings about various topics around Python and pytest at conferences and in companies – both as a trainer for Python Academy as well as independently.

Between September and February, I’m working as a lecturer at the Eastern Switzerland University of Applied Sciences (OST Rapperswil, formerly HSR) part-time. There, I’m teaching Python to first-semester students, while also being the main responsible person for the course. Before that, I was a research assistant for the Operating Systems course.


Talks and Trainings



Company trainings

Outside of these, I have a lot of experience with on-site, remote and hybrid Python and pytest company trainings. Those typically are between 1 and 5 days long, and done both independently and via Python Academy. For more details, please get in touch!

Frequently Asked Questions

Who have you worked for before?

I’m always surprised at the diversity of companies using Python/pytest and their use-cases. Among others, I’ve conducted pytest and Python trainings or did consulting at a…:

  • …major global car manufacturer
  • …big home appliances producer (testing washing machines and refrigerators with pytest)
  • …company in the energy electronics sector (controlling a climate chamber with a pytest fixture)
  • …well-known name in Formula One
  • …leader in insurance and financial services
  • …provider of an alerting system for emergency services
  • …a governmental health organization

As the legal form of Bruhin Software is a sole proprietorship business (“Einzelfirma”), it needs to contain my last name, Bruhin. The family coat of arms for Bruhin often contains a bear paw. The logo consists of such a paw symbolizing Bruhin and the “<>"-symbols standing for code/software.

I want to contact you because of a domain name

There is a “Florian Bruhin” from Baar who owns various .ch domain names since around 1996/1997 without them being in use - this is not me.
