Hi, my name is Alex and I'm a developer from planet earth who loves IT in general and built my first pc when I was around nine years old.
I hold a master degree in Computer Science and work for Canada's largest software company (OpenText) where I help our customers to operate their systems smoothly.
Hardware always fascinated me so I'm still using a custom made rig which can be found on this link
I'm not a full stack developer which means I couldn't do programming 24/7 my whole life. So I mess with both, hardware and software so I get my variety in IT.
When I'm not dealing with IT things then I go for a ride with my bike, climb a mountain or do cooking. I like the japanese and canadian cuisine a lot.
In fact my first job I did after high school was cook in a five-star restaurant and I did a lot of this stuff also at home in my spare time.
After that I made my master's degree in Computer Science. My favorite operating system is Linux and the distro is of course Debian with the z-shell as the only one ;).
Since most programs I use are not available on Linux I also use a Windows machine. I hate Windows, in the way its distributed but nevertheless I use it.
I'm also no big fan of Apache2 (lighttpd) and all of my servers are using nginx which is awesome btw, but still their Tomcat is not bad.
I hear a lot of rock, punk rock and metal but I don't have a main genre. In fact everything that sounds good gets onto my spotify playlists.
Thats why I have several playlists with different sets of music. My favorite artists are listed above.
In case of contact, use the fastest way to get a response, my discord server below. Other then that you can use my mail aebian[at]aebian.org.
You can also send me a message on the freenode, QuakeNet or OFTC IRC networks but I don't actively check the message there. (evening mostly)
PS: I'm also available on Twitter , GitHub , LinkedIn , Reddit , LastFM , SoundCloud , and Discord .
