Grazer Linuxtage 2019 speaker: Gerald Senarclens de Grancy

Gerald (aka 'santa') is a contributor to free and open source software since more than ten years. For example, he worked on the KDE text editing component KatePart and ported the optimization library PuLP to Python 3. Besides that, he occasionally scratches his own itch filing and fixing bugs whenever something's sufficiently annoying. More recently, this included a fix in W3C Slidy.

Besides contributing to FLOSS, he is leading a great team of highly skilled software engineers at TimeTac GmbH and enjoys university-level teaching. Through his lectures, at least some of our future decision-makers get in contact with the huge benefits of open source software. However, his main passion are his daughters Amélie and Marielle.
