About Me

I am an Electrical Engineer by profession and currently has a full-time job at [http://www.transco.ph TransCo]. Although my line of work is completely out-of-sync (for now) with my interest in computers, I managed to self-train myself in programming and has been doing some unofficial, in-house development work just to make my job easier and be more efficient.

Contributions

  • [https://launchpad.net/people/ippiraman/+translations Rosetta Translation Activity]

  • Migration to Ubuntu (BreezyBadger) of two internet and gaming cafes (26 pcs)

  • Migration to Ubuntu ([wiki:EdubuntuWiki Edubuntu]) of my High School Alma Mater Computer Lab (25+ pcs, in progress). I am also coordinating with their Filipino Department Head Teacher in helping with the Tagalog translation as part of the students school project. Since, I have just finished setting up their LAN and they recently got broadband connection, I'm really excited about this!

Looking Forward

I feel that Ubuntu has given me a wonderful opportunity to learn about GNU/Linux, Open Source, and about the community that drives it. I want others to feel the same.
