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.

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 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)

Team Memberships

I'm a member in the Voice driven UI and the Speech Control Team because both have got to do with speech recognition. And I think that is the next step in accessibility/usability.

In both I'm a general interest member, meaning that I'm playing the waiting game. I don't know if my programming skills are good enough to be of help.

Future Plans & Projects

At the moment I'm studying to become Bachelor of ICT in the field of Programmer. While I'm doing this, I plan on also getting a few certificates in the 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 OMG!Ubuntu! and have been working on it from time to time. It's going to but 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 Wink ;-) )

Contributions to the Ubuntu Community

None, yet! But I've only just started getting involved in Ubuntu, other than being a user.
