About me

Since 2012 I've been involved in the development of DIY small scale biogas. I'm since 2009 into physical computing (later IOT) using Arduinos and later ESPs or RaspberryPis to read sensor data, collect and store data or make things do things. I'm using it for example to read temperature data of my biogas plant or read soil moisture / temperature in the greenhouse.

I grab whatever I can on the net about Permaculture and love to finally be able to work on my own permaculture project.

I'm the administrator of & By profession I am a Senior Drupal site builder with more than 15 years of experience in webdesign.
