Karsten Reincke: Short Introduction

For nearly 30 years, I - Karsten Reincke - have been working as a software developer and as an IT Project Leader. Moreover, for nearly 25 years I am committed to the idea of free software. Hence Open Source Software is my passion:

After having worked as a free software developer and as a senior expert at 'T-Online International AG' and 'Deutsche Telekom AG', I am now working for 'Deutsche Telekom Technik GmbH', where I - after having dealt with cloud technologies -  now again play the part of an Open Source Counselor for the whole company.

In the past - as well as in the future - my commercial and private activities were and will be accompanied by open source (software): I am proud to be able to participate in the open source game - meaning to give free software back to the community as a charge back for the received advantages of a world of free software.

And in my leisure time I am inspired by music, marathon, and ZEN - which satisfy my desire


It was a real pleasure for me to return back at the terminal and the keyboard: In the beginning, I was a software developer. But then I acted the part of a PMI certified Project Manager, of a Certified ScrumMaster, a Technical Project Leader and an Open Source Compliance Manager. Thereafter I became a member of an agile development team of Deutsche Telekom Technik GmbH where I could combine the hardcore software development with aspects of project leadership and open source compliance.

But finally, in the beginning of 2017, I got back the task to rebuild an Open Source Committee for DTAG, to maintain the Telekom Open Source License Compendium and the Telekom Open Source Compliance Advisor and to newly develop a Telekom Open Source Compliance Maker. Hence now I am both, a programmer and a compliance manager - or, in other words, an Open Source Counselor.
