ABOUT ME

One of the most difficult things, at least from my point of view, is talking about himself. This section takes by far the most time when I have to write it down. Nevertheless, I’ll try to do my best. So let’s start, I am:

THOMAS BENDLER

My primary occupation is, obviously, in the IT sector. From a private passion for building and working with computers raised a profession that nowadays is responsible for my living. I started already back in the mid-eighties in a time where a soldering-iron was necessary to assemble computers far before they were widely used. Many times the operating system wasn’t in place and instead a simple programming language like BASIC was started. You had to program everything yourself but you have gotten on the other hand a really good insight into how computer technology works. In the end, this was a really good experience for me and still helps me nowadays solving varying IT problems.

But, as time goes by my profession has slightly changed and was adapted to my age and the changes in IT in general. Nowadays I work as an IT vendor lead and my daily tasks move more away from pure technical problem solving towards project leading, designing and contract tasks. The good thing is that these constant moves keep my mindset fresh and I still learn a lot of new things every day. This is definitely challenging but worth doing it.

Besides my profession, I like to work with open-source projects (and sometimes I contribute to them as well), especially with a connection to the Linux area. As a result, a lot of my own projects origin in the Linux area. You’ll find them if you click on projects in the upper left of my website. Besides IT, I enjoy driving a motorcycle, for some years also on the racetrack which is really big fun. More information about this hobby could be found on my website under the link Motorrad (german).
