Hi, I’m Giorgos Keramidas, an all-around UNIX hacker & advocate.


I was born in Athens, Greece, in 1976. I’ve lived in a number of places since, both around Greece and abroad. I currently live in Patras, Greece.


My work as a programmer has brought me in contact with various sorts of systems, finally crystalizing in a deep preference of Unix & Unix-like systems. I currently work as a programmer with a team of very interesting and knowledgeable UNIX folks; a very enjoyable sort of work, since I get the chance to hack Unix programs all day long :-)

In my spare time, I work with the wonderful team of FreeBSD, doing all sorts of amusing and very cool stuff with my favorite operating system. I am part of the documentation team of FreeBSD, and a part of the current Core team, and I also try to keep up with some of the exciting networking stuff that gets committed to the main FreeBSD source tree.

After working for a while with CVS, Subversion and Perforce (at a previous job and by using the Perforce server of the FreeBSD cluster), I have started growing a moderate interest in Source Code Management systems. Mercurial is one of my favorites, but I also feel confident with any of the ones I have used in the past.

    Thanks for to post “Contributing to FreeBSD”. It opened my eyes a lot. I firmly agree with ever thing you say, and I did take it to heart. I have been slacking contributing back to the BSD’s. That is why I started back onlybsd.com. I still have not decided how to further my site, but I am daily trying to give back to the community and also saving up to give to the FreeBSD Foundation. Thanks.

    BTW, I hope you don’t mind, I contacted Will Backman, the BSDtalk.org guy, about interviewing you. I hope you don’t mind, ;)
