Contributions

2014

  • Launched a Kubuntu Romania website, where news and support in the romanian language are offered.
  • Convinced a web developer friend to donate some of his time to create a funky looking download page for the Kubuntu Sites. It is now used on the Kubuntu Romania, and on the official Kubuntu site.
  • Started working on a general, multilingual website using the Wordpress platform for use as a single Kubuntu website.
  • I've created a Kubuntu users map, where I've placed most of the users that have migrated to Kubuntu (from Windows or other Linux distros) because of me.
  • Migrated all except a few computer in the administration, to Kubuntu, in a General School in my city.

2013

  • Started to contribute on KDE translations to Romanian
  • Started learning the KDE bugfix workflow
  • Fixed a few bugs in Jovie (they were not reported on the bugzilla, but directly to Jerremy, the Jovie maintainer)
  • Applied for GSoC with a Jovie project plan, but because I already had a job, it was not accepted.
  • Contributed to fixing a minor KMail bug (https://git.reviewboard.kde.org/r/111917/)

  • Participated (with funding from Kubuntu for travel and accomodation) at a Bug Squashing Party in Munich, where I met face to face for the first time part of the Kubuntu Team, part of the Debian team, and of course the organizers, the LiMux Team.

  • Started migrating different public services in my city to Open Source software (LibreOffice, Krita, and where possible Kubuntu)

  • I was initiated in packaging for Kubuntu by Jonathan Riddell
  • Packaged a UFW KDE KCM for Kubuntu, and communicated with the developer to fix the problems I've found in the tarball.

2012

  • Finished migrating from the familiar GNOME apps to the KDE apps.

2011

  • As an Ubuntu user I hated Unity so much that I've decided to give KDE another try. I've been using Kubuntu since.

Future Goals

  • Migrate all the administration in my city (schools, city hall, etc) to Kubuntu.
  • Become a KDE developer.
