Joey Hess


Joey has been developing Free Software for 20 years. He is best known for his long involvement in the Debian project, where he led the development of the Debian Installer, and created Debian tools like alien, debhelper, debconf, and pristine-tar. Outside the Debian project, Joey's best known free software projects include git-annex, ikiwiki, and etckeeper. He lately uses Haskell for most projects.

Joey lives deep in the woods in the Appalachian mountains of Tennessee, subsisting on solar power and communicating largely through git pull and push over a dialup modem line.
