If you can write something about my contributions to ubuntu community, it will be appreciated!

  • Alvaro is one of the best members we have in our LoCo Team, he works in the Marketing team and its responsible for distributing all the material for the conferences in our Country, also Alvaro is the person you'll see at the Ubuntu booth at every single Free Software Event in Chile. If someone deserve to be an Ubuntu member that's him the guy is a Rockstar. -- PedroVillavicencio

  • I have seen Alvaro working in our community for a long time in either Marketing or as speaker in the 99% of the open source conferences, even I saw him once using a tuxedo just like tux. His amazing work and dedication in the team deserves without a doubt his ubuntu membership badge. In addition to all the said before I would like to add that he has many other abilities like doing magic tricks that he usually show in our stand in order to get the attention of our attendees, just outstanding. -- VictorVargas
