froscon2010 - PREVIEW

Free and Open Source Software Conference

Geerd-Dietger Hoffmann

I am just doing my MSc in Software Systems Engineering at UCL in London. If I am not hacking around in some program I like repairing cars and bikes, smoking Cuban cigars, reading and collecting books, Windsurfing, Snowboarding, going to the gym, Football, Real Ale and doing stuff with my girlfriend.

I am quite involved in OpenSource and enjoy talking and going to conferences around the world. I am currently the chief editor of the CentOS Newsletter and otherwise quite active in the CentOS community. But I also do may other things. My topic of interest varies, as I like to explore new things but currently I am interested in compilers, again. Also, I am the creator of the objic programing language which started my endeavor into Cloud Computing.
