Bernd is a Mechanical Engineer applying engineering methods to forge computers into useful tools. After eventually graduating in 1983 despite distractions of the University Computer Club, he applied his engineering skills in structural and mechanical engineering, while developing the software tools desperately needed to maintain his employer's competitive edge. He became accustomed to Unix and served a number of years on the committee of the local user group (WAUG). A subsequent career change built on his engineering, Unix and software development experience; which has been expanding in leaps and bounds since 1989.
Bernd Felsche has been employing himself in his own company (Innovative Reckoning) since 1999, supporting the needs of a number of businesses.
