From ArchWiki

Hi, my name is Vedran and I work as an HPC application expert in Max Planck Computing and Data Facility (MPCDF) in Garching, Germany. I also offer consulting services.

Previously, I worked as an assistant professor of computer science in Faculty of Informatics and Digital Technologies (FIDIT) in Rijeka, Croatia. My former research group continues to operate at FIDIT and Faculty of Medicine and uses various Arch-based distributions. The scientific software in the group's research field of computational biochemistry, such as GROMACS, is mostly intended to run on Linux and other Unix-like operating systems. Arch-based distributions are great for the group's use case as many required scientific software packages are readily available in official repositories and AUR.

GASERI also use Arch Linux in teaching of several courses. This is an obvious choice since Arch is the best Linux distribution around. In particular, the group's flagship sysadmin course Computer System Administration is built around the Arch way, including several lectures and exercises that focus on usage of systemd.

My primary goal is to improve the contents of ArchWiki to make them more useful as a reference for students learning the ways of sysadmin work using Arch Linux and Arch-based distributions. Additionally, I aim to contribute improvements to wiki pages describing the scientific software I use in daily work.
