UKUUG Biographical details

Marcus Brinkmann (Germany)
No picture available

I was born in 1975 in Dortmund, a town in the western part of Germany and I have been studying mathematics in the neighbouring town of Bochum since 1996.

I joined the free software movement in 1996 when I installed the GNU/Linux system on my home computer. My early involvements in Debian 1997 lead to the development of the Debian GNU/Hurd binary distribution when I discovered GNU/Hurd in 1997 and noticed its lack of a packaging system.

Today I am a core member of the GNU Hurd development team and a strong supporter of the free software movement. I am working part time developing free software related to cryptography for g10 Code GmbH.
