== 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 [[BeginnersTeam]].

I was also interested in the lightweight [[https://wiki.ubuntu.com/DerivativeTeam/Derivatives |official flavor]] 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.
I'm currently trying to transition from wiki to design work. For this I've joined the [[https://launchpad.net/~ubuntu-design |Design team]], as well the [[https://launchpad.net/~ubuntu-tv |TV]] and the [[https://launchpad.net/~ubuntu-phone |Phone team]].

=== 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.
##Admins are few and their head suddenly disappeared, so I'm stepping in to help them out.

##=== Speechcontrol ===
##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.

=== Dutch Local Community ===

== 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.

##=== 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 ;-) )

== Contributions to the Ubuntu Community ==
Because my contribution will only accumulate I've decided to move my contribution section [[./MrChrisDruif/Contributions|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 [[./MrChrisDruif/Testimonials|here]]
