If everything is setup fine, this should be my first post on Planet Ubuntu.
A bit about myself. I am a long time Ubuntu user from Bangalore, India. I studied in Manipal Institute of Technology, Manipal. Started my working like last year in July. I have been one of the founders of Linux User’s Group in my college alone with friends Ayush and Shubhendra. [first meet pic]
I have done lots of work in spreading Ubuntu during my college days. Many of my friends are running Ubuntu for which I provide support. Even my brother, cousins and many relatives have been attracted to this wonderful distro.
These days I work mostly in Zeitgeist Team. My work started with creating the CLI bindings for zeitgeist so that awesome apps like Tomboy, Banshee and F-Spot can have zeitgeist integration. The integration with tomboy and banshee is nearly done. Next up is f-spot. I have been trying to get into the engine more and more these days. Thanks a lot to the Zeitgeist team. It rocks! You too are invited to be a part of it. You’ll get lots of warm hugs.
A few projects apart from zeitgeist which attract my attention are Elementary Project and Novacut. Thanks to the founder of Novacut – Jason Gerard DeRose who taught me packaging(including basics). Thanks to Elementary guys who told us that FOSS applications can too look beautiful and artistic.
My next aim is to become a MOTU. I am slowly learning packaging better and better each day. Some years back I used to do bug triaging, but now I am actually interested in squashing them.
Lastly thanks to the excellent Ubuntu community. Love you all.
