My name is (not revealed due to privacy concerns) and this is my website where I occasionally share my notes and thoughts about Open Source, BSD and GNU/Linux system administration, and programming - the pragmatic way.
I started programming in BASIC on the Sharp MZ-800 when I was about 9 or 10 and I have been passionately interested in computers and programming since then :)
I had my first computer related job when I was only 15 years old in a security and communications company working primarily with modems and 10BASE2 Ethernet systems. There I learned a lot about soldering, electronics, and programming in machine code. It was a real dream job for a 15 year old kid :)
I almost became an electronic engineer, but I never finished the last part of my studies because I was too busy working. Therefore I am mostly self-taught.
Most of my life I have been working as a system and network administrator and programmer - both as an employee and as a self-employed/freelancer/consultant.
I created my third startup when I was 32, a company with a dedicated team of employees that, among other things, provided networking solutions and support for the growing number of Internet cafés that became very popular at the beginning of the millennium. At that startup we provided a free networking and hardware troubleshooting class for all people located in the city. That gave me an opportunity to teach as well, something I later discovered that I rather enjoyed back then. I have been writing on and off on this website since about then.
Whenever I am involved in a project I try to follow good software engineering principles such as:
I am also the author of PHP The Wrong Way and Programmering i Go (a Danish Go programming tutorial that I hope to finish some day). I don't use social media so you can't find me there. I do have an account on GitHub, but since most projects I am involved in requires developing proprietary code I only occasional have an opportunity to put stuff on GitHub, so nothing exiting exist in my repo.
