First OSS Contact

The first time I really experienced open source not only from a user point of view was at an internship early 2001, we hat to patch some open source software because of a bug that affected us. I was absolutely amazed how easy it was to get the source code, fix the issue and recompile the software.

Contributer in OSS-Projekt

I’m currently maintaining two open source projects. The first one is a php backup tool I started back in 2014 that's called phpbu. The idea of this tool is to configure you backup process and keep the configuration with your project source code. The second one is Captain Hook, a git hook library that makes it easy to write custom git hooks in php. Besides my own projects I occasionally contribute to various other open source projects.
