Image of Gerald Pape

Hi, my name is Gerald and I am a software developer from M√ľnster. On the internet, I usually go by ubergesundheit. For fun and recreation, I like to try out new programming languages and technologies, tinker with IoT and embedded systems and read or watch science-fiction. In M√ľnsters Code for Germany division I voluntarily create civic tech with open data. I'm really interested in technologies like Linux, containers and container orchestration with Kubernetes. My secret weakness is owning and trying out mechanical keyboards.
You can find me on GitHub, Twitter and Keybase. You can also write me an email.
