Kevin Decherf

I am a system engineer and developer living in France. Computers are my passion since high school when I started developing websites on my spare time. Following the exploration of new languages like C# I joined the Microsoft's community as a student partner for few years. I truly discovered the Linux world at the same time and sharing the two worlds was an interesting experiment. I eventually focused on the latter as a trainer and full-time system engineer. The use of a wide range of languages and technologies is my everyday challenge, so are production and monitoring topics in general.

Knoppix, Mandrake, Gentoo and others remind me funny memories of the old time but now I contribute to Exherbo, a great and fresh source-based distribution. I've co-founded Clever Cloud, a french awesome cloud platform, where I was the former production manager. I am now a DevOps-enabled system administrator and developer at Gibmedia Group. You can checkout my profile on GitHub and LinkedIn.

My spare time lets me enjoy my other passions like photography, books and Japanese culture to name a few. I share photos on Flickr, thoughts on this blog, links with Shaarli, and sometimes anecdotes about sysadmin on *Le Kdecherf. I'm quite active on Twitter too.
