Bruhin Software is a freelancing company founded by Florian Bruhin and located near Rapperswil, 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.

Part-time, I’m working as a lecturer at the Eastern Switzerland University of Applied Sciences (OST Rapperswil, formerly HSR), 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.

Frequently Asked Questions

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.
