Wesley Mouedine Assaby runs OpenBSD

I’m Wesley Mouedine Assaby, a sysadmin living in Reunion Island, for those who don’t know, it is located in Indian Ocean, next to Mauritius.

I met OpenBSD system at a training about firewalling and SMTP (Postfix) in 2006, it was OpenBSD 4.0. I was impressed by using pf(4), it was elegant and simple as it is now.

So I brought OpenBSD to the company where I work—Aise Informatique. We use mainly Microsoft Windows and provide services based on OpenBSD:

Now let me tell you about my personal projects.

I’ve published few articles in BSD magazine. Some of them in 2014 and 2013 archives. The most recent ones:

Around the same time, in 2014, I’ve published a book (in French).

As you can see I’m very passionate about this operating system. I made OpenBSD Jumpstart to help newbies. I moderate Telegram community, if you’d like to join, just walk through the slides, there’s an invitation link. :)

I’m using OpenBSD to learn things like Ruby and ksh(1) scripting. I’m building a complete mail server solution based on built-in daemons like smtpd(8) and httpd(8). So stay tuned.

Find me on Twitter and GitHub.
