About Me

My name is Netanel Shine. I have started my way with Linux back in 2001. In 2004 I've became a user of Ubuntu(Warty Warthog), and since 2009 I am an active user and involved in open source projects. In addition to that, I am a member of the "Hamakor" foundation ( an Israeli society for free and open source software), and I'm taking part in the Ubuntu Israeli Loco. In nowdays I am a student of computer science and a Java developer.
