About

I'm Konstantine or @MaterialFuture, a person who has experience in multiple field. I work on a variety of Software related project utilizing things such as Crystal, C, PHP, Ruby and Bash. If I'm not working on something software or web related I'll tend to my servers and work on my skill as a Linux System Administrator utilizing tools such as Ansible, emacs tramp-mode, vim, and other related things. I also do Graphic Design and User Experience research where I'll create branding guidelines or research ways to help with user experience. I'm mostly on my computer and tend to read a lot of books pertaining to said technology to better myself and learn to be better at whatever I do.

I currently maintain software projects that you can see here on the projects page and here on my Gitea instance. I focus mostly on freedom respecting software and tend to avoid using or recommending any to others the reason for that would take another page to explain so just check my blog where I often go into more detail regarding free software and what it means to me. Some other projects I have include; writing papers on Design/Psychology and the philosophy of Free Software in the current age, creating bootstrap projects for JamStack sites, and working on some ideas/software to launch with my company. I'm focusing more on writing and working to contribute my writing skills to free software projects for their documentation. I hope to contribute my knowledge to those who seek it and to help advance projects in their infancy so that way they can blossom into fully realized ideas.

About This Site

This site is a blog, a wiki, and a hub for all the things/projects I work on. I miss the days where people had not only personal sites but personal spaces where they let their creativity go wild, and that's what I try and do. This site is serves as a repository of knowledge as well as a place where others can see into my world. I try to have fun with it of course.

I have a page dedicated to what I'm up to currently that I try and update whenever possible which you can view here. If you're looking to contact me I have a page dedicated on the many ways one can located on the contact me page. If you're wanting to see the sitemap you can on the links page.
