About me

I am passionate about Linux and open source technology. I am convinced that an open collaboration between people and groups and the respectful dealings with contributions from everyone leads to better solutions, good quality software and resilient teams with people who actually love what they do. My technology focus is mainly on computers and free and open source software because I strongly believe in the FOSS model as it provides an opportunity to learn and innovate based on the experience and knowledge of everyone. "The Cathedral and the Bazaar" is one of my favorite books and had some influence when I started my career. As a software engineer, I am capable of developing software for these systems. My focus in software development is on the server, cloud and virtualization level. I've done Qt based end user applications before and I have an interest in the embedded world. I prefer working with teams, but I can work on my own, if need be.
