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 features an Intel Core i5 4670k and as of March 2018 also a GTX 1080ti from MSI.
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 + oh-my-zsh.
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'm a Windows Insider.
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 very nice.
My favorite Band is Billy Talent. I like their music style and Ian's guitar skills and could listen to them for ages, but besides that I'm listening to everything that sounds cool.
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.
In case of contact, use the fastest way to get a response, my contact form on the left. This will send me an e-mail directly into my inbox.
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 LastFM , and Discord .
