Short Biography

I have been using Linux since ca. 1998 (Slackware), and Debian since ca. 2004. I have always been interested in programming, and have contributed to a wide variety of open source projects over the years, and published a few applications of my own.

Recently I have been quite active in assisting the Debian Go packaging team, primarily with updating Prometheus packages. I have a strong interest in metrics / telemetry / time series databases, and how they can be used in the field of SRE (Site Reliability Engineering).

I strongly believe in a "work smarter, not harder" approach, and have low tolerance for bloated or badly designed software.
