My name is Kristian Klausen (known as klausenbusk on most platforms).
I'm currently taking a break from studying and is currently working
part-time as a Linux sysadmin/developer and enjoying life.
I have been running Arch Linux since late 2012 and ran Ubuntu and Debian
before that. Since then I have been contributing to different
open-source projects, often as drive-by patches, and I maintain my
own little open-source project flathub-stats.
At work I have been installing and maintaining the Debian infrastructure
and digital signage solution (also Debian) since ~2015, as part of that
I also backported a few Debian packages in ~2016. We also use k8s
(kubeadm on Debian servers), Docker, GitLab CI, PHP, shell scripting and
I got a lot of my experience from that job.
My more direct involvement with Arch started in late July 2020 when I
joined #archlinux-devops and "complained" about something and svenstaro
then decided to create a GitLab account for me. Since then I have
been contributing to the infrastructure project, often mail, Keycloak
or terraform related changes. In the same period I also contributed to
the arch-boxes project and basically refactored/rewrote a big chunk
I don't have a lot of reasons why I contribute to open-source, basically
it is fun and I enjoy contributing (and often I need the feature/issue
fixed). The same applies for my arch contributions, but it wasn't just a
single "drive-by patch" this time, which is probably due to the
community factor and that I find infrastructure work interesting.
If I become a Junior DevOps I hope I can ease the burden on the existing
team, by being able to work on issues which requires some kind of
access and help with day-to-day maintenance. Among other things, I
hope to help with the mail related stuff(I have been running my own
mail server on Arch for a few years) and just general infrastructure
stuff (nginx, monitoring, networking, you name it).
