Adrian Wyssmann

I am family father of five children and husband of the most beautiful and most amazing women in the world. I am also a technology enthusiast especially when it comes to computer and software and I am big fan of Linux. I am also really into the DevOps mindset and I advocate for it.

As I believe a good developer highly adaptable and should always look for ways to improve his/her technical skills, so this is what I do. Which is also what motivates me to do this blog. My primary goal is to write down new or cool stuff which I’ve learned. Writing it down helps to comprehend it. The advantage is I can always look it up again and perhaps - sharing it - helps other people as well.
