Rainer Hihn


My name is Rainer Hihn, I’m an IT-Consultant and Software engineer located in the south of Germany. In my free time I like to either hack my own software or play around with Gentoo and OpenBSD.

You can get in touch with me via e-mail or visit my Xing profile.

For software that I created check out my profile on my self-hosted git server or my github accoount.

Software which I really like and recommend:

  • xmonad, a tiling X11 window manager
  • Gentoo, a flexible, source-based Linux distribution
  • OpenBSD, a free, multi-platform 4.4BSD-based UNIX-like operating system
  • Django, the web framework for perfectionists with deadlines
  • beets, the music geek’s media organizer
  • Borg, a deduplicating backup program
