NAME


Jakob Bauers

SUMMARY


moin. Made '95 in Germany, I now live in Copenhagen, DK. I enjoy when things are running fast, including myself. I also try to race my bike everywhere and spend free time outside. When it comes to work, I live in the terminal and prefer services in containers, Ubuntu on servers, and Arch on my laptop. A fair bit of troubleshooting Windows has left its mark. Infrastructure as code is great - even better if it's my own code, running on my own server. There are good reasons to use someone else's computer, aka the Cloud. There are also good reasons to keep some things on your own machine. It all depends. Always automate and KISS.
