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.
Line 22: Line 8:
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. When I joined the community in nov-dec of 2010 I wouldn't have thought that I would get so involved with so many projects. I planned on staying a bit in the background, only to help others when I absolutely was sure about an answer. Learning and helping as I went I got involved with the [[BeginnersTeam]].

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. I was also interested in the lightweight (now) [[https://wiki.ubuntu.com/DerivativeTeam/Derivatives#Recognised_Flavors | recognized flavour]] of Ubuntu called [[https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Lubuntu | Lubuntu]]. In jan-feb 2011 I joined [[http://webchat.freenode.net/?channels=#lubuntu,#lubuntu-offtopic | #lubuntu and #lubuntu-offtopic]] channels to get to know the team and help where possible.

=== Programming Skills ===
I've got programming skills in the following languages:
 *Java (intermediate)
 *Genie (beginner)
Now after two years I'm starting to feel really confident about my abilities as wiki-admin and start to pursuit a new direction. If you know a good place to get started on Artwork and Design for Ubuntu/Linux: feel free to contact me.

=== My Master ===
I've recently been asked by [[UndiFineD]] if I could be his first padawan. I gracefully accepted his offer.
The 19th of April 2012 will always be a special day for me. Not only because I became accepted as [[https://launchpad.net/~ubuntu-doc-wiki-admins/+members#active | Wiki Admin]] but I also became an [[https://lists.ubuntu.com/archives/ubuntu-news-team/2012-April/001545.html | Ubuntu Member]]. A day to remember, for sure.

== Team Memberships ==
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. ||<tablestyle="text-align: center; width: 95%"> [[https://launchpad.net/~chrisdruif | {{https://launchpad.net/@@/launchpad-logo | Launchpad.net}}]] || [[http://gplus.to/druif | {{http://api.ning.com/files/RvOIZcCYp-5XC4u6Ll057ArFvS1iZBlTHFOyg-x2B1A-PPToyFvfJS9c840CHXP*wUqJxGC3eNm2v-AQqAgS4LUzilrEB6iu/Google_plus_logo.jpg?crop=1%3A1&width=64 | Google+}}]] || [[https://twitter.com/account/redirect_by_id?id=82079070 | {{http://www.dutchmovingbillboards.nl/images/icons/twitter.png | Twitter }}]] || [[http://webchat.freenode.net/?channels=##gubuntu,#lubuntu-offtopic,#ubuntu+1,#ubuntu-beginners-team,#ubuntu-bots-team,#ubuntu-community-team,#ubuntu-design,#ubuntu-desktop,#ubuntu-doc,#ubuntu-meeting,#ubuntu-news,#Ubuntu-nl-mwanzo,#ubuntu-nl-offtopic,#ubuntu-offtopic,#ubuntu-ops,#ubuntu-phone,#ubuntu-power-users,#ubuntu-tablet,#ubuntu-testing,#ubuntu-tv,#ubuntu-uds,#ubuntu-wiki | {{http://files.zanmgt.com/projects/liquidcubed/moddb/lc-title-irc.png | IRC channels}}]] || [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/June_29 | {{http://www.classicfm.co.za/siteworkspace/images-1/calendar/june/29june-jpg/image_tile | 1987}}]] || [[http://g.co/maps/jvqce | {{http://www.janivanda.nl/wp-content/uploads/2011/07/google_maps1.png | Zoetermeer}}]] ||

=== Current Project & Goals ===
I'm working on IM Solo, a single window multi-protocol instant messenger. 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 ;-) ) I've started contributing to Ubuntu since I joined the Beginners Team but it became more serious after I joined the Lubuntu team. As time progressed I became more knowledgeable about Ubuntu, Lubuntu and using the moinmoin wiki with all it's features. As such I've become the Team Leader for the Wiki section of Lubuntu. Because my contributions are already quite reasonable and will only become more did me decide to move it to it's own sub-page, which can be found [[/Contributions | here]].
Line 48: Line 29:
== Contributions to the Ubuntu Community ==
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.

=== hajour ===
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! <<BR>> -- [[RedSingularity]] 11 febr. 2011

=== 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]] 12 febr. 2011

=== JackyAlcine ===
Chris, what can I say? You're a really sociable, easy-to-talk-to and willing to work kind of guy. Those kind of people tend to always find a +1 spot with me, and heh :D you got it. Having you around makes things a little less stressful, as you know with SpeechControl, we're working on stuff that can help the common good. Your concern with what you can do to assist others and ensure that you and others can cooperate, learn and grow on each other is *so* the Ubuntu way, and that instantaneously is a thumbs-up. I don't see why you can't be a member of UBT, or Ubuntu, you have what it takes.<<BR>> -- [[jackyalcine|Jacky Alcine]] 15 febr. 2011

##== Ubuntu Membership ==
