My name is Didik Setiawan. I am a software engineer who likes to contribute to free and open-source software. I also work as a devops engineer on an IT company in my country.
My laptop is Lenovo Thinkpad. I also got loaned a MacBook from my employer. I maintain some server on cloud service, so I can get rid of hardware maintenance of production server related to my work. For mobile device, I have a Xiaomi Redmi 3 to help me do my daily tasks.
Both of my laptop use Linux. Most of server I maintain also use Linux. I use Ubuntu Long Term Support both Desktop and Server edition. My consideration for using this distro is because reliability, simplicity and comes with good community support.

For home use, it is nice to have a Raspberry Pi running as a multimedia device. I also would like to try open source software for networking device, such as OpenWRT.
I love to make documentation about journey of my life as a free and open source
software user also as developer. By create this blog, I could share my views,
ideas and experiences to other who interested. Finally, I hope that it will be
useful for others. I licensed the contents of my blog under a
