Jack-Benny Persson

Born in the early eighties and got hooked on technology around '93 when I got a Intel 486 with Windows 3.1 to play around with. A couple of years later, Linux found it's way into my life and since then I've been tinkering with the bits and pieces that follows.
Unix systems have been a passion to me ever since. I like reading about Unix history, software development, the open source movement, and so on. Between may 2012 and may 2013 I was a board member of The Linux Society of Sweden. From 2013 to 2015 I studied at Hermods in Helsingborg to Linux system specialist.

Hacking

I write code in various languages for both fun and profit. It all started out with some simple Bash script and then went on to more complex things. I still consider myself as a learner though. You can find all my projects on GitHub.

Writing

I love to write! Over the years I have written several books; you can find them all under the books tab. I also run a small online newspaper in Sweden.

My own companies

CyberInfo
This company started out in 2010 as a hobby of mine. In the beginning CyberInfo mostly offered Mumble servers and webhosting for gaming communities. By the start of 2016 the hobby was reformed as a real business. CyberInfo is now both a tech and a media company, producing both books and a small online newspaper. CyberInfo also offers consulting services in tech (mostly regarding to Linux).

getDevNull
This is a company I ran together with a good friend of mine from the Linux System Specialist class. We developed products for small companies. This company is now closed.
