Short Biography

My name is Mathias Behrle, born in 1959 and living in Freiburg (Germany). After high school graduation in medicine I started a profession as violin maker. Meanwhile I am double job holding with the handcraft on the one side and software development on the other side. I am involved in programming since 30 years, doing my first steps with Visual Basic under Microsoft Windows to create a highly customized application for my own handcraft business. Two years later I switched to my first Linux experience with SUSE Linux. Still not satisfied I installed few months later my first Debian Potato, providing me since then with the flexibility and freedom of the Operating System suiting my personal preferences and convictions. Subsequently I got involved actively in a number of OpenSource projects, mainly in the area of ERPs, and of course, Debian.

With the usage of Debian I started to contribute occasionally with bug reports. My involvement increased steadily and reached a new state in 2009, when I helped to co-maintain the first set of packages of the Tryton suite. In 2011 I became DM and since then I am maintaining the whole Tryton stack in Debian as well as a full fledged backports suite provding backports for all supported Tryton releases for Debian stable and oldstable (debian.tryton.org). A conversation with my current sponsor Raphael Hertzog at this years DebConf convinced me to take now the final step to apply for DD.
