Timo Osterkamp

Hello, my name is Timo Osterkamp and as you see, I am not a front-end web designer. I am rather intrested in embedded systems, software engineering and digital policy. As a matter of course, this is reflected to my daily life. Currently I am studying Computer Science on the master's program at the University of Osnabrück. Through this and in the preceding bachelor's program I was able to gain experience in many fields of computer science. An overview of the topics which were covered during my studies can be found in my CV. Furthermore, I am employed as a research assistant at the Software Engineering group of the Institute of Computer Science. Besides my work I am part of the Chaostreff Osnabrück where I am also a member of the board since 2015. The association is involved in many cryptographic, digital political and social projects.

Some previous and current projects.

Jitsi Meet Cluster

Jitsi Meet is an open source tool for communication over the Internet with web browsers. The Chaostreff Osnabrück has set up a Jitsi Cluster, which can be used by everyone free of charge. The Jitsi Cluster is available at meet.osna.social.


Here I have created a tool that redirects you to an instance of your favorite web-based service. For example, if you are looking for a jitsi server, you can go to jitsi.random-redirect.de and you will be redirected to a jitsi server. It is also possible to find a poll, a codimd pad, a cryptpad, an etherpad, an ethercalc or a BigBlueButton server.


You can contact me in one of the following ways.
