About Me

My name is João Santana, a 30 years old guy who lives in Great Recife, Pernambuco State/Brazil.

I have training in Library Science (although I did not graduate) and I'm in the middle of an undergraduate degree in Human Resource Management.

Quite nothing to do with Information Technology, in short.

Since 2007 I've been using Ubuntu as my operating system, primarily for home use. I became interested in system administration and desktop development over the years, and calls to the support of the companies where I worked halved since then.

At the end of 2011 I assumed responsibility for conducting Ubuntu LoCo Team Pernambuco, a task that has been accomplished with the invaluable help of other ubunteros in my state.

Contributions to the Ubuntu Community

Ubuntu Between October 2006 and October 2010 I worked as a volunteer technical support, helping to solve problems from users through the Brazilian mailing list. Since then I've been concentrating on support through Launchpad Answers.

Ubuntu Between 2008 and 2010 was an associate collaborator to Brazilian Translation Team. Although I'm not anymore related to Translation Team, I'm still helping projects providing translations to Brazilian Portuguese (see my page in Launchpad Translations for more info).

Ubuntu Since 2008 I have been acting as an evangelist, promoting Ubuntu on events and conversations with people connected to Information Technology industry in my state.

Ubuntu In October 2011 I took the main lead of the Ubuntu LoCo Team Pernambuco.
