Why are you interested in Open-Source and, specifically, Linux?

I administered and maintained a lot of different systems during my life and finally found that I like Open Source software and particularly Linux most of all. The most sophisticated side of the open source approach is that I can combine and integrate software in any way, write my own modules or even change existing code to do exactly what I want to. I could choose one of a lot of different ways to do the particular thing - it is awesome!

When did you first come into contact with Open-Source and/or Linux?

I set up my first Linux access server in about 2000, it was a Debian.

How did you find us?

Just using a meetup search.


I am a system engineer with more than 20 years experience with a software development background. I have moved to New Zealand in February, 2014, and now I live in Raglan and work for MetOcean Solutions company.
