Summary

I made my first website in 1999. Since then I worked in nearly all parts of e-commerce: from frontend, through backend - with a detour to embedded development - to system administration. I believe in optimization, Open Source and Free Software, and to research the best, existing solution for a problem.

Until mid 2014, I worked in communications, maintaining mail, fax, and proxy services. I migrated the former proprietary virus and content filtering to open solutions.

From 2015 I was working on automating Hadoop clusters with over 3000 physical nodes. I refactored many of our legacy scripts, applied patch management and self-healing to handle exponential growth and to align with compliance requirements. I worked with SAP and HP to support user and hardware issues.

Hobbies and interests

I used to make web presence for small companies between 2003 and 2010 on a custom PHP CMS. I moved to WordPress in 2007, wrote a few mildly successfull plugins for it. I ended up writing a simple static site generator in Python 3 to learn it, and to integrate building blocks into it. I can write HTML and CSS by hand.

To keep myself up to date with technologies out of my day job I kept running bare metal servers for web, mail, XMPP, and ZFS storage services.
