An Association of Creativity and Precision


What is Paridea?

Paridea is the creative association of Jannes Drost-Tenfelde and Peter D. Hedderley, who have been close friends and colleagues since 1999.  The association developed into a company, Paridea Software Engineering GmbH, which successfully ran from 2001-2011 until it was closed by the two friends, for the simple reason that they desired more time for their respective families and the stress and responsibility of running a software engineering company was proving to be too high.

Where are they now?

Jannes and Peter still work at the same company, currently for Atos Information Technology GmbH at the Cologne branch in Germany.

Their current activities include the design, architecture and research of software solutions for the defence industry and military organizations.

Their wide-ranging knowledge and experience includes the following key areas of expertise:
