  • I am a Python backend engineer working on Django web applications with a secondary focus on DevOps topics in software development environments.
  • I use Neovim 2 as IDE for coding, but otherwise rely more and more on GNU Emacs 3 to make my life supposedly easier.
  • And yes, I have a strong passion for GNU/Linux 4 and prefer using Free/Libre and Open Source Software (FLOSS) over products from Big Tech companies like Alphabet (Google), Amazon, Apple, Meta (Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp, …) and Microsoft 5.
  • Besides all the nerd stuff, I run in the Berliner Läufercup series 6 and follow political news and discussions with my quite left-wing mindset 7.
  • Since I am damn privileged in this world, I donate 10% of my monthly net income 8. I can only recommend everyone to do this in a similar way.
  • I live and work in my hometown Berlin.

  4. I’m mostly using Debian, but my work laptop currently still has Ubuntu installed. ↩︎

  5. Since Linux is not (yet) really suitable for everyday use on mobile devices, I use the Google-free Android operationg systems CalyxOS and /e/OS am very satisfied with them. ↩︎

  6. If you live in Berlin and you like running (at any level), then join our BRLN RNNRS team. Just contact me for more infos. ↩︎

  7. For a broader, more analytical view on politics, I recommend the monthly magazine Blätter für deutsche und internationale Politik or the weekly newspaper der Freitag. In addition, the weekly podcast Lage der Nation takes a comprehensive look at daily political events and the political TV magazine Monitor offers investigative insights into selected topics. ↩︎

  8. Besides donations to political parties and organisations such as medico international, the Free Software Foundation Europe (FSFE) and the Humanistischer Verband Deutschland (HVD), the majority of donations goes to organisations that demonstrably achieve particularly good results with their restricted funds (Effective Altruism). For a short introduction to effective altruism, watch this short video [German] from the TV magazine odysso - Wissen im SWR. For more information, I recommend the book Doing Good Better by William MacAskill and the German donation website↩︎
