The database was developed by Holger Pschera, a software developer from Dresden who works together with the Markneukirchen master violin maker Ekkard Seidl and his wife Petra. Together with Holger Pschera, they developed the concept, details, requirements, configuration for stringed instruments and much more for IDA piece by piece over the last years.
Holger Pschera, himself coming from the Vogtland music corner, is an experienced freelancer and specialist for software development. IDA is especially close to his heart, as the lives of individual musical instruments, their creators, players and owners are contained in this software.
"A software that exists in several languages and opens closed doors to the "biography" of a musical instrument for collectors, instrument makers, museums and scientists. It is the joint work of master violin maker Ekkard Seidl from Markneukirchen, his wife Petra and computer scientist Holger Pschera from Erlbach.
