About Me

Photo of Guido Berhörster I was born on November 22nd, 1981 in Steinheim, Germany and attended highschool at Städt­isches Gym­na­si­um Blomberg, Humble High School (Texas, USA), and Humboldt Gym­na­si­um Bad Pyrmont where I graduated with Abitur in 2002. I have studied political science at Bielefeld University and the University of Potsdam and spent two semesters abroad at Universitas Gadjah Mada (Indonesia). I work as an open source software and web developer at Fre(i)e Software GmbH.

I have always been interested in computers and technology, in particular Unix-like OS and open source software. I enjoy learning about and tinkering with new technologies, creating or contributing to open source projects and collaborating with others in the process. Over the years I have developed broad knowledge on a variety of topics such as systems programming, GUI application development, web development, packaging, integrating and maintaining software distributions using different toolsets, frameworks, programming languages and operating systems. In addition to my contributions to numerous open source projects I have also created a few open source software projects.

Apart from technology, I also take a strong interest in politics, history, and current affairs and enjoy traveling, hiking and being in nature.
