Hi! I am Theo, born and raised in Larisa, Greece, but currently living in Prague, Czech Republic. I work for U+ as DevOps Engineer.
I am a heavy Free and Open Source user, contributor and developer. My main areas of interest are infrastructure administration and automation. I've been a user and contributor on configuration management, orchestration and other DevOps technologies for more than 10 years already; before they started being modern and cool :) Thus I am always interested in learning new infrastructure technologies, languages and products.
Over the years I have contributed to various FOSS projects, mainly as system administrator, but also as developer, packager, conference speaker/organizer and documentation translator. Most notably:
- openSUSE, as part of the openSUSE Heroes team. I also helped on the organization of various openSUSE Conferences.
- Gentoo, as part of the Infrastructure team. I have also participated to the Google Summer of Code program, once as a student and twice as a mentor, for Gentoo related projects.
I like to spend my free time on improving my czech language skills, movies, travelling and music (at home or going to concerts). I listen mainly to 90s rap. I always tend to visit record stores on my travels, as I'm also a vinyl collector.
