## Add more than listed in table for contact if you like, such as IMs, or other social networks you frequent. If you prefer not to post publicly things like your email, you can list such contact information on launchpad a more private network. == About Me ==
About Me should be written by others, because I find it difficult to tell something about myself. Not because I'm not interesting, but I'm not a good story writer.

== About Me ==
Describe yourself. What do you do in your spare time, what kind of computer and linux experience do you have? Tell as much as you feel comfortable, we don't need to know exactly where you live, we don't do stalking. Maybe you want to sub divide it into sections if it gets long.
I think that I'm not the master-coder that would change the entire world with his codes. But I do think I can be a good project manager or find the people who can realize what I've got in mind.

On a more casual side-note: I play the clarinet, bass-clarinet, saxophone and sing Tenor :D . That last one pretty good, because I sing in the quartet of an amateur choir.

=== Programming Skills ===
I've got programming skills in the following languages:
 *Java (intermediate)
 *Genie (beginner)

I'm a member in the [[https://launchpad.net/~voice-driven-ui|Voice driven UI]] and the [[https://launchpad.net/~speechcontrolteam|Speechcontrol Team]] because both have got to do with speech recognition. Speech recognition is one of areas in which Ubuntu is lacking heavily at the moment. The current solutions have a 80% hit rate, but if we really want to improve speech recognition (in general, not only Linux) we need to add Artificial Intelligence.

The main project is Speechcontrol, in which I hope to learn how to package and help maintain the packages.

What are you planning on doing in imediate and longer future? Doesn't have to all have to do with linux, looking at a degree or certification? Looking for membership to a team? At the moment I'm studying to become Bachelor of ICT in the field of Programming. While I'm doing this, I plan on also getting a few certificates in Linux and http/php/css.

I got the idea at [[http://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2010/12/one-window-empathy-boy-would-it-simplify-my-life/|OMG!Ubuntu!]] and have been working on it from time to time. It's going to be written in Genie and is probably going to use
telepathy as protocol engine.

I'm currently reading up on creating websites from an accessibility point instead of a design point. Should be good to learn it from the get go from this standpoint, so all of my future websites are easily accessible for everyone. (World, come to me ;-) )
Line 28: Line 49:
Note: Often people like to list their major contributions, so people know the good work they've done. When you apply for membership to restricted teams, the senior members usually like knowing what you've done before. In this example, several subsections exist. The more work you do, the longer this section will become.

=== Support ===
 {*} On Ubuntu Forums (link to account) as, I do....

=== Forum Guides: ===
 {*} I've written X guides, and link to them.

=== Wiki ===
I've edited and made contributions to following pages...
 {*} Link to Wiki page, people can see page history you don't need to point out exactly what edits you made.
None, yet! But I've only just started getting involved in Ubuntu, other than being a user.
I don't know if it counts as a contribution, but I can be found on different IRC channels, helping where I can.

I have worked with Chris Druif for the past 2 months on the [[https://launchpad.net/~speechcontrolteam| SpeechControl Team]]. He has been doing some terrific work on the blueprints and with programming on SpeechControl Team. Also he has supported me very well with translating and explain things. Since I have health issues I needed more help. I have seen him also in [[http://webchat.freenode.net/?channels=ubuntu-beginners|#ubuntu-beginners]] channel and in [[http://webchat.freenode.net/?channels=ubuntu-beginners-team|#ubuntu-beginners-team]] where he helped with great patience and friendly support. I can support the quality of his work, and believe Chris Druif is here to stay. <<BR>> -- [[hajour]] 9 febr. 2011

=== phillw ===
I also echo [[hajour]] He's also got a great sense of humour and patience, I have no hesitation in recommending this fine young man to UBT. He will be a great asset to UBT and is wanting to help others all the time. <<BR>> -- [[phillw]] 9 febr. 2011

=== RedSingularity ===
And I echo [[phillw]] which, by programming standards, automatically echos the [[hajour]] module as well. Chris is always on IRC helping out and giving guidance to all those in need of it. He is also very friendly to everyone and just plain old fun to talk with in general. I give him the "Good lad" stamp of approval. Ask him, he will tell you. Kidding aside, I think he would be an excellent asset to the progression of the team!

=== UndiFineD ===
Chris is my first padawan, He was hanging round the UBT for some time, but never really expressed the desire to become a padawan. Yet he showed great interest, when I asked him to become one. Now, One month later He seems ready in my eyes to become a full member. He is involved in several commonly shared project teams with me, like [[SpeechControl]]. He has the desire to become a capable developer and can manage many things alone, but he is not afraid to ask for help when needed. In time Chris Druif will be a fully capable Ubuntu member, and thus I fully support him in becoming a Ubuntu Beginners Team member. <<BR>> -- [[UndiFineD]] 2011-02-12
