About me

A small introduction about myself

Linus Metzler

Web Developer from Switzerland

Hi, allow me to introduce myself. My name is Linus Metzler and I live in a small town in Eastern Switzerland. I've been into web design and development since I was about twelve years old. After some time getting to know how web sites are made, I founded limenet.ch in 2008, my own web start-up, and started taking on client work. In case you're wondering who my first client was, it is Martin Manser – owner of our local bike shop. For the last six years, my client base has grown to all sorts of different types of clients — from the small one-woman show to medium businesses and international companies. Apart from typical web sites, I enjoy working on web apps (for example my own project management tool) and custom-made solutions, such as a geo-related tool which was being used in a scientific research around Red Lodge, MT.

To get a deeper understanding of what is behind the web, a server or anything related to computers, I am studying computer science at the Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich. To achieve a good work–life balance, I enjoy running, mountain biking and spending time on horseback. And traveling, of course!

So, now you got to know me a bit. Below you find some of my work and if you want to work with me, give me a shout.
