It was in 1982, when it was still the domain of geeks and tinkerers, that Bernd encountered UNIX for the first time. It was love on first sight, for both. Not surprisingly, a few years later his professional life also started with UNIX, in technical support, then in consulting and training. After spending over a decade managing training programs of technical and non-technical nature, he returned to his old love. Since 2013, he has been a technical instructor and designer of training courses in Linux, later OpenStack. After a steep learning curve with a lot of help from the OpenStack community, Bernd decided to give back by getting involved in the OpenStack documentation project. Today, he is mostly active on the OpenStack Q&A site, ask.openstack.org, but also tries (with varying success) to keep his Github repository under the handle of berndbausch in an acceptable shape. When not working on his beloved computers, Bernd raises three teenagers in Japan and explores the mountains in and around Tokyo.
