About me

I have been using Linux intensively for quite a few years now. I started using Ubuntu just after the warty release.

Work & Study

Part-time work, part-time study, part-time a lot of other stuff. Smile :)

Currently I'm working on a project to migrate a primary school to Edubuntu (almost finished).

At the moment I’m studying for my bachelor in software engineering at the Hanzehogeschool (Groningen, in the Netherlands). However I changed my study program a bit and put my focus on Linux in the last two years. But I end up with the same piece of paper. I expect to graduate early 2007.

Fields of interest

  • Ubuntu
  • Linux security (especially host based)
