I'm very happy in using Fedora, thereby it's reasonable to support the project. Currently active in localization team Germany.

My experience with linux started with:

  • suse, then opensuse, moved to
  • centOS and finally moved to
  • fedora ;-)

IT related experience in a nutshell:

  • software development => perl, web stuff like Javascript/HTML/CSS/AJAX
  • Apache, mod_proxy
  • linux server administration
  • databases PostgreSQL, MaxDB
  • IT service management (ITIL associate)
  • social skills (2 years teamleader)

I got my bachelor/master in "applied informatics" (in German "technische Informatik") in 2001. I started working as a developer/db-admin and I got some experience in Perl and afterwards I moved to administrational stuff and operating a data center. Finally I switched to more "strategic" things like "Service Management" and various projects regarding this (servicedesk, deployment process, ...)

I'm very addicted to postgresql as database backend for different tools and productive systems. Additionally I invested some time in addon-products for postgresql, like pg-pool (check the beginners documentation here: [1] )

after relocation to Lake Constance some months ago I finally managed to find a new job challenge. Starting in Jan 2012 I'll work as a system engineer in a debian based server environment within a completely windows-free company :-) (o.k., except one vm). I'm looking forward heavily to dive into debian meanwhile I keep Fedora on my workstation, of course.
