=== Software Engineering ===
I'm being trained at the moment to become a software designer and as such I've got skills in designing software and managing people for development. On a previous version of my wiki I stated that I wouldn't shock the world with my programming skills, and I still stand by that statement. I'm enjoying psychology in designing software, so I design from the users perspective. That way all the functions implemented in the software are easy to use and located at logical places.

I'm a member in the [[https://launchpad.net/~speechcontrolteam|Speechcontrol Team]] because their objective is to control the computer via speech, which would be quite awesome. They have gathered a lot of developers already who have worked on parts that are necessary for this project.

It's going to be written in Genie and is probably going to use

About Me

When I started with my community work in nov-dec of 2010 I wouldn't have thought that I would get so involved with 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 SpeechControl Team. More about this at Team Memberships.

I was also interested in the lightweight (unofficial) derivative of Ubuntu called Lubuntu. In jan-feb 2011 I joined #lubuntu and #lubuntu-offtopic channels to get to know the team and help where possible.

On a more casual side-note: I play the clarinet, bass-clarinet, saxophone and sing Tenor.

My Guide

In January I've been asked by UndiFineD if I could become his first Apprentice. I gracefully accepted his offer. With the Council meeting preceding the UBT meeting of March I was eventually been accepted as an UBT member. However I keep a good relationship with my former Guide.

Team Memberships

Lubuntu

I've joined Lubuntu to do wiki work over there. Lubuntu is a young project which can use my help with wiki work.

Dutch Local Community

Future Plans & Projects

telepathy as protocol engine.

Contributions to the Ubuntu Community

Because my contribution will only accumulate I've decided to move my contribution section here

Testimonials

Because a lot of people were putting up testimonials (thanks everyone!) I've moved it to a sub-page, which can be found here
