Greetings from a new employee

DSC_0084_cs

Hello, My name is Christian Schmidt, the new Application Operations Engineer at Flying Circus.

Since about two weeks I augment the crew and dive into a very interesting environment. While getting in touch I currently migrate our Jenkins from Gentoo to NixOS platform.

I am already feeling at home here and the staff here has been great with giving me all of the necessary information to perform the necessary tasks.

On a personal level I’m 31 years old and, since I moved to Halle (Saale) in 2011, I compaign at the local hacker and makerspace Eigenbaukombinat, organizing workshops and events to provide knowledge of especially privacy, coding, lockpicking, linux and many more.

I look forward to working with all of you and providing the quality service and support that Flying Circus is known for providing. See you on the web!
