At the end of 2005, i got sick of searching for people from Quebec interested in Ubuntu. So i found the CanadianTeam and i started to translate their pages on the FrenchTeam's wiki. Later a suggestion from FabianRodriguez compelled me to do something i new i had to do; Start a QuebecTeam. So i did(With the help from DanielRobitaille, PatrickHétu and FabianRodriguez).
The web site is at: http://www.ubuntu-qc.org/, most of my contribution to Ubuntu is on the QuebecTeam/WebAdminLog and of course, since i was the only one doing any work on the team, i am the new owner of the Loco-Drupal Developpement Team: https://edge.launchpad.net/~loco-drupal-dev. I also took over the Loco-Drupal project: https://edge.launchpad.net/loco-drupal. For me it is a way to put my work on ubuntu-qc.org back to the community.
I the near futur i think it would help a lot if they're was an easy way to find and talk to Ubunteros from my area(as well as any other areas...). As for what i see for the futur, i think we need to find a way to promote local projects, i was thinking about creating a fundation in Quebec, to enable people to give money to local projects, and of course it would really help to be able to give back tax receipts.
I live in Sherbrooke, Quebec. I talk French and English.
I started with Slackware in 1994(i think), one of my friend, introduced me to it. It was still text-based floppy install.. Ah the old days.. Anyway, i have been using Linux since that day.
