Martin Loschwitz

Martin Loschwitz has been a Linux addict since the age of 9. While still in school, he started to participate in the Debian Project for Free Software and has been an official Debian Developer since 2003. Additionally, in 2001 he started to work as free journalist for IT- and Linux- related topics. He is looking back on more than 250 published articles in numerous magazines that focus on Linux. 

After finishing school, Martin has turned his hobby into a profession and launched a successful career of professional IT services. During that process, he gained multiple years' experience in setting up and maintaining Highly Available Linux configurations. His ability to communicate with others at ease and to express difficult and complicated technical problems for everyone helped him to become a sought- after trainer and consultant. He has an excellent understanding of Linux and IT specific problems and can come up with solutions to difficult problems quickly.

Since co-founding hastexo in 2011, Martin has been in high demand as a speaker and instructor covering topics like high availability, distributed storage, and OpenStack. He has spoken extensively on all three topics at LinuxTag, the Open Source Data Center and Open Source Monitoring conferences, CeBiT, SLAC, and numerous other events.

At hastexo, Martin conducts both on-premise and open-enrollment training, develops training courseware, and has an active presales and consulting role.
