A new phase of life

Today was the beginning of a new stage in my life. After two and a half years as part-time software tester, I started working full-time as an Operations Engineer at Sipwise, a small Austrian company doing 100% Free Software (or Open Source, as they call it, see [1] for a summary on the terminology of Software Freedom). Although I’m actually studying chemistry, I have been dreaming about earning my money with Free Software for years. So this new job is nothing less than a dream come true.
Unfortunately, working full time leaves less free time for my family and also my voluntary work at FSFE, but I will try my best to keep both these things up as well. :-) In addition, I will try to report about my work at Sipwise from time to time on my blog. In the meantime, if you’re interested in cutting edge Free Software stuff in the VoIP field and cool things like watching TV over WebRTC [2], you might want to check out the Sipwise blog [3].
