I am Johannes Findeisen, born in December 1979 in Lugala (Tanzania).

I work as Linux System Administrator and Software Developer since the year 2002. My favorite operating system is Linux. In my youth I played around with Atari ST - I still own 3 of them and love them - and Commodore Amiga computers.

My favorite programming languages are C and Python but I am familiar with PHP, JAVA, Lua, Ruby etc. too. My daily tasks are mostly done using a Shell interpreter like Bash or Zsh. In my job I also used Ksh as Shell because it is very portable to other UNIX operating systems like AIX. Personally I prefer the Zsh Shell. For me a programming language is more a tool than some magic stuff, so when I need to learn a new language for a project it is always fun to do. I prefer procedural programming and sometimes some object oriented coding.

Personally I prefer Alpine, Gentoo and Artix Linux. Alpine and Gentoo for servers and Artix for the desktop. Since companies prefer Debian, Ubuntu, CentOS/RHEL (Redhat) and SLES (SuSE) I am very familiar with these Linux distributions because of my Job. My ideology is to build the most simple solutions as possible but nowadays things are getting very complex and it is hard to resist against all this new stuff.

In my spare time I like biking, fishing, making electronic music and building electronics stuff using microcontroller boards.

I love the nature.

I love Free Software.

I love simple written code (KISS), so I try to do so as well.

I do not like systemd. Why?

You will not find me on Facebook!


The logo of this homepage was created at that time I registered in late 2000. It was my brother Jakob who took some files from the web and merged them! :) Thank you, Jakob!
