I am a senior software engineer at Red Hat in Stuttgart, Germany. I've been working for Red Hat since August 2000.
Before i joined Red Hat i did a lot of freelance work for various companies and generally worked with Linux since 1991 (early days ;).
I've been using Linux as my main programming platform for nearly all personal and some commercial developments. My work included system administration on various Unix machines and labs, small to large scale programming in various languages (Mostly C/C++, Java and scripting languages like Perl and PHP). The development projects include the areas of high performance mathematical computing, network servers, web database integration, production management just to name a few.
Currently i'm maintaining several packages in Fedora-Core and work on a few projects, including the Laptop SIG.
