I was pleased to find someone in my very small corner of the universe that actually want to work on creating a group here in Magog. He managed to put 20 people together very fast and they now have montly meetings.

How i got involved in the creation of the Ubuntu Quebec Team

At the end of 2005, i got sick of searching for people from Quebec interested in Ubuntu. There was the CanadianTeam and the FrenchTeam but no QuebecTeam and nothing was even close to it. So i started with the CanadianTeam, i translated their pages on the FrenchTeam's wiki. I found a few people with this approach but there was something wrong about it so i thought about starting a QuebecTeam myself. At that time i decided to wait for that. Later a suggestion from FabianRodriguez compelled me to do it; So i did, i Started the QuebecTeam with the help from DanielRobitaille, PatrickHétu and FabianRodriguez.

The web site is at: http://www.ubuntu-qc.org/, i contributed everything i did for the web site by creating what is now known as Ubuntu Drupal. It is now maintained by someone else because with my anxiety problems i could not continue the work by myself.

About Me

I live in Magog, Quebec. I talk French and English.

I started with Slackware in 1994(more or less), at the time, it was floppy based installation... Yeah wow... We've come a long way... Smile :)

I had to deal with a Generalized Anxiety Disorder pretty much all my life, i think i was born with it.
