I reside in the United States but originally from Germany. Im a Business professional by trade. I have a interest in Linux as a non-programmer and want to help shape the larger movement in a holistic way.
What does that mean: I tend to focus on fostering a welcoming culture, calling out abusive or unnecessary moderator behavior, and in general aim to introduce a positive environment to re-brand in many ways the few toxic norms established in the past rise of the Linux community.
I like the linux community and Garuda has easily become my favorite flavor. I use the i3 variation to force myself to learn and immerse into the eco-system.
I hope to meet interesting characters and make friends with technical people in a effort to bridge the more "business oriented" and "technical mindset" of the community! (Work in Progress)
All in all Im new to the whole linux spiel but so far its come a long way from what I remember and is a lot more functional once you learn the ropes.
