Ward Vandewege

by mattl Contributions Published on Jan 18, 2011 01:56 PM
Ward discovered GNU/Linux in 1995 and never looked back. He likes to do both sysadmin and programming work and doesn't mind wielding the occasional soldering iron. He's been with the FSF as a sysadmin since 2005, and was a volunteer before that.

Ward has been removing proprietary BIOS code from FSF machines by upgrading them to a free BIOS. In this context he has contributed code and documentation to the Coreboot project. Ward also works as an independent contractor doing a mix of sysadmin and development work with a strong focus on free software.
