A tugboat and the sentence Howdy, I'm Henne I hack Free Software

I'm a software engineering manager helping people to realize their full potential. For the good of the business and for themselves. I am also a developer of the modern web. And for more than two decades I am a rigorous practitioner of Free Software development.

My day job at SUSE is hacking, operating and maintaining the Linux release engineering platform Open Build Service.

In my spare time I hone my skills by hacking a library to instrument Ruby on Rails applications (influxdb-rails). Leading an Open Source project that is producing a conference organization app (OSEM). And by teaching free software development with programs like RailsGirls Summer of Code.
