Rowdy Schwachöfer

About me

Hi there! I’m Rowdy, born in 1980 and living with my wife in the great city of Venlo, home of the country’s oldest carnival society, Jocus. I am a developer at Fellowmind, formerly known as Pulse Business Solutions, and my main focus there is Microsoft 365 for Operations and Microsoft Azure in common.

I’ve got 25 years of programming experience and I’m fluent in C# and X++ and can read/write C, C++, Python, YAML, CSS, HTML, XSLT, XML, JSON, JS, and PHP. I think I got them all, not sure.. 😉 Yeah, I’m a nerd, and I’m proud of it.

At home, I like to automate my day-to-day life and try to make my life and that of my girlfriend easier by automating as much as possible. Of course, in a way that meets all the WAF guidelines.

WAF: Wife Acceptance Factor

A term used by someone to describe how likely their brilliant home improvement projects, social plans or geek toys will be accepted by their wife.

I’m using Home Assistant as my home automation system, which is a great open-source and privacy-focused system that you can run yourself on something simple as a Raspberry Pi, or, like me in Docker on my NAS.

Curriculum Vitae

Nice to ask, but no. I’m happy at Fellowmind and not searching for a new job. Want to join our growing family? Take a look at our vacancies.
