I am Johannes Findeisen, born in December 1979 in Lugala (Tanzania), but I am german and live in Germany.

My motto: Keep it simple, complexity fails!

I am working as Linux Systems Engineer, developing platform solutions and sometimes writing code...

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 command-line interpreter like Bash or Zsh. In my job I also used Ksh as a Shell because it is very portable to other UNIX operating systems like *BSD and IBM AIX. Personally I prefer the Zsh Shell.

In my spare time I like biking, fishing, creating electronic music and making electronics stuff using AVR microcontrollers and boards like Arduino or Raspberry Pi. When having too much time (in the winter maybe) I love to play old retro games from Nintendo or SEGA using a Raspberry Pi with RetroPie installed... :)

I love the nature.

I love Free Software.

I love Linux.

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

I do not like systemd. Why?, (Further reading:

My timezone is: CET (UTC +01:00).

You will not find me on Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, Twitter, WhatsApp, YouTube etc.!


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!


This website is built using Jekyll, a simple, blog-aware, static site generator. I do not like Ruby but Jekyll is a very awesome project and it works. I wrote the gallery creation script in Ruby just because I was in that world. Nowadays, I would prefer Python but Ruby does it well so why change the language. They all do the same... :)
