Beyond Meatspace :: Marlon van der Linde

Software dev, outdoor & nature lover, railfan, somewhat of a gamer, enjoyer of coffee, amateur nature photographer, votary of science & technology and opensource advocate from Cape Town - South Africa

Regarding work:
I have worked as an electronics repair guy (during school, mostly replacing blown 2N3055's and tuning coils on old Tedelex AM radios), and as a unix & linux systems admin, but the last ten years was spent doing my core thing, writing software. Right now, I am developing back-end software, and enjoy working with a very active and cultural team at Curve. My previous few roles being interesting too, in their own ways.
Regarding life?
My ideal working(which is also play) environment is Debian GNU/Linux, yes, for philosophical reasons, but also portability and dependability. A 1440p monitor, GTX 960 and 32GB of ram keeps Fluxbox (or sometimes WindowMaker) happy, and gives docker enough room to breathe. I love JetBrains IDE's (and I have my PHPStorm setup to handle all my php, nodejs, haskell and golang duties) but have NetBeans as my primary IDE at this point (cost, and work license stuff…). I am a vimmer, I do use windows for games from time to time (however, Quake3A and Wurm runs better for me in Linux), because JeffK taught me everything I know.
