About me

  • 18 years old, American. (Birthday 08-21-1991)
  • High school senior
  • Using Linux for 3 years, started off with Fedora off and on (switching between that and windows) before quickly moving on to Kubuntu full-time. New to Linux on the desktop (04/2006), been using Kubuntu since Feisty.
  • Actually, my dad started me off with Linux as a youngin', starting at Red Hat 5 or 6. I have fond memories of playing XBill and XBoing on our 486 in the basement.

  • Helped package KDE 4.1 RC1. (~ half of the language packs, plus skanlite)
  • Backported kdewebdev-kde4 4.0.98 to the Kubuntu-members-kde4 ppa.
  • Backported konq-plugins-kde4 4.0.98 to the Kubuntu-members-kde4 ppa.
  • Worked on this for Intrepid: https://wiki.kubuntu.org/KubuntuIntrepidDesktopDefaults

  • Packaged 3 of the 4.1 final packages for Intrepid
  • Backported 11 of the KDE 4.1 final packages to the Hardy PPA (apachelogger can vouch for all this)
  • Various miscellaneous packaging-related bugfixes.
  • Heavy involvement in almost every KDE release since 4.1. (Ask any of my sponsors/companion developers)
  • Heavy involvement in the general development of Kubuntu 9.04, 9.10, and 10.04, focusing on packaging in both universe and main as well as bug control.

Coding

  • Ported jockey-kde from PyQt4 -> PyKDE4 for Intrepid.

  • Ported software-properties-kde from PyQt4 -> PyKDE4 for Intrepid.

  • Contributed various bugfix/polishing patches for Adept.
  • Lead developer of the upcoming kubuntu-notification-helper notification daemon.
  • C++ port of the kubuntu-firefox-installer, which was able to knock off 3MB of ruby dependencies off the Kubuntu live CD while remaining total feature parity with the ruby version.

Bug triaging

  • I have been actively triaging KDE bugs for over a year as of November 2009
  • I resolved ~15% of the bugs in kdebase for the kde3 -> kde4 transition. (yuriy can vouch for this)

User support

  • I have lurked in #kubuntu-kde4 since around the middle of April, 2008 giving support. (Moved to #kubuntu when Intrepid was released)

Future

  • Package moar plasmoids
  • Become MOTU, dominate universe (done)
  • Package KDE each release (ongoing)
  • Hone C++ skills, become more involved in KDE development.
