I’m Jeremy Jongepier and I’m a guitarist and singer. Even though I really love vintage stuff I’m also very much into combining my passion for music with my passion for using Linux for musical purposes. So I’ve been playing around with embedded systems like the MOD Duo to use them as effects processors for quite a while.
I’m working as a system and component administrator at Cyso, a very innovative Dutch hosting provider, where I’m maintaining hundreds of Linux servers, building high-availability platforms and doing some third-line support for customers.
Besides making music with Linux and working with Linux I also help out the Linux audio community by maintaining the linuxaudio.org server and I used to be very active within the community (forums, IRC, mailing lists). But since my job at Cyso and being a parent of two kids I neglected hanging around in the community a bit
When it comes to MOD the initiative got me interested since the very beginning but when I saw the MOD presentation at LAC2014 in Graz, Austria, I got very enthusiastic and immediately backed the project when it appeared on Kickstarter. LAC2015 in Mainz only strengthened my enthousiasm so when I was asked if I would like to join the MOD team I was stoked. So here I am, keeping an eye on the MOD server infrastructure, installing new features, keeping everything up-to-date. Besides the sysadmin work for MOD I do some testing of upcoming releases, bug fixes or new features.
So hopefully I find some time to hang around here and be of assistance
