About Me.

Linux System Engineer and Developer

As a dedicated system administrator, I am always interested in new topics in the field of information tecnology and keep my knowledge up to date.

Security in IT is one of the key elements for me. Because a company or a system is only as secure as its weakest link. That's why I develop solutions for myself and my customers that offer the greatest security in terms of the usability of an infrastructure. I now have more than 10 years of experience in IT, run my own Wiki and am willing to let you benefit from my experience and knowledge.
