About the author

My name is Arvid Zimmermann, and I'm doing computer stuff in Bochum, Germany. I like the idea of free software, and I totally love riding my bike.
The sources of my programs can be found on my SourceForge and GitHub profiles.

Together with Oliver Lorenz and Ronny Monser, I founded the open source project moziloCMS in 2006. moziloCMS is a flat file CMS that is mainly used in German-speaking countries. I managed the mozilo project until 2012, when I had to hand it over due to lack of time.

At the end of 2018 I took over the project leadership of FlatPress. This is an international used flat file blog engine based on PHP.

Feel free to criticize (or praise) me: (PGP key)
