About Me edit

Hello, my name is Rupert Horstkötter. I was born on the 10th of April 1981 and I'm living in Darmstadt, Germany. I'm currently on the home stretch of studying Business Administration and Electrical Engineering at Darmstadt University of Technology.

I'm an official openSUSE Member and I was employed twice at Novell/SUSE. From Nov 2007 to Feb 2008 I did an internship in Product Management at Novell's Nuremberg offices and from Nov 2008 to Mar 2009 I was employed as a Workstudent for Community Architecture. As of Oct 2009, I work for open-slx gmbh as open-slx Community Manager.
