Jan Schaumann is a System Administrator at Stevens Institute of Technology,
where he maintains a NetBSD based environment across dozens of workstations,
numerous public laboratories, as well as a number of clustered high
performance computing facilities, servers and various other computing
facilities. The tasks involved in all of this are, as any SysAdmin will know,
often surprising but far too many to be listed here.
Jan holds a BS and an MS degree in Computer Science and teaches graduate
classes in UNIX programming as well as System Administration. As a NetBSD
developer, he ported the pkgsrc tools to IRIX, runs bulk-builds on that
platform, finds himself as the maintainer of a number of packages, manages the
www team and produces press releases.
He enjoys life in New York City together with his wife and will happily drop
anything (including his laptop!) in order to go skateboarding, snowboarding
and surfing. You can reach him at <email@example.com>.
