Who I am

Just a 27 year old that loves the humanities, programming, and lame smileys :P

My first taste of Ubuntu was with Warty after long use of Mandrake. Ubuntu was the first distribution I tried that used dpkg instead of rpm and I liked it so much that I haven't used an rpm based distro since. Smile :) Recently, I've been getting into packaging for Ubuntu and Debian which is really fun and lets me look at a lot of code at the same time. Come find me hanging out in #ubuntu-us-tn, the TennesseeTeam LoCo channel on Freenode.

General Feedback

Working with Christopher was very easy and straight forward. He took everything that was said to him and put it to good use. He even taught a couple of us veterans something we had to research a bit to find out concerning not having any build dependencies because the application was a basic C/C++ STL app and since everything that was needed to build it was already in the build environment. Plus he introduced me to lxsplit which is a cool app.

Specific Experiences of working together

I just really sponsored his lxsplit package and didn't work super close with him, but I got to see his interaction with others on IRC and it was perfect. He did a great job taking feedback and putting it to good use. The lxsplit package turned out good, was uploaded and approved in hours. Very good job!

Areas of Improvement

Besides his wiki page Smile :) Just continue on doing what he has and he will be fine. As time goes on I have no doubt he will eventually become a good asset to the Ubuntu development community.

General feedback

Christopher is a good guy to work with, he is active in #ubuntu-motu channel to help people and he is eager to learn new things and apply them to his packages. He also started to work on Debian side too, this will increase his skills a lot, so I am sure we will see very good things from him.

Specific Experiences of working together

I reviewed and uploaded his first NEW package (charm). He addressed my comments soon and in a good way, and he continued to improve it.
