About me

Hi, I am Andrej.

I like to share things I have learned so others can benefit from them!

I am in my beginning 30s and like Linux, home automation, electronic gadgets/DIY, self-hosting, and most important: learning new things!

At work, I am a remote software and systems engineer at gridscale.io. Working on the platform as a service (PaaS) products like Kubernetes, PostgreSQL, MariaDB, etc.
I started to work part-time (4 instead of 5 days) in January 2022 in order to figure out what I could do more with this blog.

I do not have a former education or training in something like computer science. That made it a little harder for me to get into the job.
By coincidence, I am mentoring now a little bit. Meeting up with people who are in the same position as I was a few years ago. I hope I can give back a little and make it easier for them.
