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 [[https://launchpad.net/~speechcontrolteam| SpeechControl Team]]. More about this at Team Memberships.

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

##=== 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.
Now after two years I'm starting to feel real 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 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.

=== Lubuntu ===
I've joined [[Lubuntu]] to do wiki work over there. Lubuntu is a young project which can use my help with wiki work.
##Admins are few and their head suddenly disappeared, so I'm stepping in to help them out.

== Future Plans & Projects ==
##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'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]].

##=== 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'm on my way to mastering the moinmoin wiki and as my next "challenge" I've decided to pursuit something I loved to do as a kid: Design/Drawing! For starters I've decided to first input my thoughts on the [[https://launchpad.net/~ubuntu-design | Ubuntu Design team]], as well the [[https://launchpad.net/~ubuntu-tv | TV team]] and the [[https://launchpad.net/~ubuntu-phone | Phone team]]. I've also joined the [[https://launchpad.net/~lubuntu-art | Lubuntu Artwork]] group.
