|I initially trained as a business economist, but a lack of opportunities in this profession meant I took the opportunity in 1999 to retrain as a Network Administrator with a large German Education centre. I had my first contact with Linux during my first year of retraining. In Germany it is IMHO mostly SuSE, but I fell in love the moment I saw it.|
I also have some BASIC programming experience from the early 80’s, but never continued it. Today I am IT Engineer for a "global company" with more than 250'000 Employees, and I'm based in Zurich Switzerland.
I have been using Red Hat since 2000 and Fedora since the first Version.
@ home, I have a small network running mostly Fedora. I spend my spare time training approx 30 children in Judo (3 times a week), and I also manage the Linux Usergroup Lörrach e.V. (Homepage only in German right now), ...
I joined the Fedora Ambassadors in December 2005. In February 2008 at FOSDEM 2008 in Bruxelles nine other guys and me founded the Fedora EMEA e.V..
If you have any question do not hesitate to contact me.
