I'm a Software Architect from Dresden, Germany and work in the Infrastructure team. I'm also interested in CAcert software development.

I'm a Debian Developer and have more than 10 years experience in the professional software engineering field.

I'm member of the Infrastructure Team and admin of Infra01, our LXC based infrastructure host, and Svn -'s Subversion repository system.

My preferred programming languages (in descending order) are:




upstream of sqlalchemy-migrate and Debian Member Portfolio Service, member of Debian's Python Modules and Applications teams, lots of custom code for system administration tasks


certified as SCJP, SCWCD, SCDJWS. Broad experience with SOAP WebServices and big enterprise applications


some smaller projects, older system administration tools, mostly replaced by (more readable and easier to maintain) Python code


most Debian work is writing Makefiles (debian/rules) containing shell code, bash used for common administration tasks


MediaWiki and Drupal development and customizations, don't really like it though


for grunt work at low level, I maintain some C based Debian packages (see my DDPO page for details), co-upstream of cracklib (primarily maintaining the Python binding
