== About Me ==

I am living in Lyon, France, I have a master degree in B2B Marketing. I am 32 years old now, and run my own company in B2B Webmarketing. My major hobbies are music and Ubuntu Studio. And I use Ubuntu Studio to record music.

I am a founder and member of Ubuntu Studio team since it started, back in 2006. I am not skilled with application development, so my main concern is to do my best to get things working: bug reporting, applications testing, hardware testing, documentation, convincing developers, etc.

= What I do for Ubuntu, in general =
 * Working as a developer for Ubuntu Studio with packagers, to test and think about what are the best and easiest possible configurations for end users
 * I find and/or convince people to collaborate or provide information, for exemple: RealTime kernel, alsa-firmware package
 * Testing Ubuntu Studio with professional sound engineers, artists and music shop to compare with commercial audio production solutions. Ardour2 is a big step
 * Doing presentations of Ubuntu and Ubuntu Studio in fair and install parties
 * I am not a programmer, but learning how to package

 * I am using Ubuntu Linux as main OS at home and for multimedia since february 2005 (Warty?)

 * I am writing some illustrated documentation in french for debutant with Ubuntu Linux
 * I own several audio production hardware and I use them to test a lot Alsa, Ubuntu Studio, etc...
 * I am one of the developper of Ubuntu Studio, wich aim is multimedia production with Ubuntu Linux. I manage too some projects around multimedia and GNU/Linux with ttoine.net, collaborating with recording studios and sound engineers/designers
 * I do presentations of Ubuntu and Ubuntu Studio in music shops, in french Ubuntu fairs and install parties
 * I spend time on Launchpad looking for duplicate bugs, and following bugs about Ubuntu Studio and Bluetooth
 * I am doing a marketing study about the possibilities to provide commercial support for Ubuntu Studio in France
Since 2007
* I did all the hardware testing and reporting to fix the restricted alsa-firmware package for Ubuntu (eg: Echo and RME hdsp pci sound cards), and obtained a hosting in Medibuntu repositories.
* I continue to test that audio hardware is working well (firewire, usb, pci, pci-e) using my personal hardware and my network to get hardware. It allows me to update documentation, both with "how to get things working", and helping users to choose their hardware.
* I do presentations of Ubuntu and Ubuntu Studio in music shops, in french Ubuntu fairs, workshops, install parties, and Lyon University.
* I use Ubuntu every day as my main OS since Hoary, and continue to report bug fixes when necessary. I am pleased to see that this is less and less often.

 * Je ne suis pas un codeur, ni un "geek", je ne connais que le html et le css ; je veux seulement apporter ma contribution au logiciel libre dans la mesure de mes possibilitées, notamment en aidant les associations, débutants, etc... à passer à Ubuntu, Open Office.org, etc...
 * J'écris de la documentation illustrée sur Ubuntu Linux pour les débutants sur mon site http://ubuntu.ttoine.net
 * J'ai à ma disposition pas mal de matériel de production audio que j'utilise pour tester Alsa, Ubuntu Studio, etc...
 * Je suis un des développeurs d'Ubuntu Studio, qui a pour objectif la production multimedia sous Ubuntu Linux. Je dirige aussi quelques travaux autour du multimedia sous Gnu/Linux avec ttoine.net, en collaborant avec des studios d'enregistrement et des ingénieurs du son
 * Ma grande fierté est d'avoir poussé et participé avec Crimsun à l'élaboration du paquet alsa-firmware pour le support des cartes son professionnelles dans Ubuntu
 * Je présente Ubuntu Studio dans les magasins de musique et les forum et autres Ubuntu "install parties"
 * Je passe du temps sur Launchpad à chercher les bugs dupliqués, à suivre les bugs autour d'Ubuntu Studio et du Bluetooth
 * Je suis en train de faire une étude de marché sur les possibilité de faire en France du support commercial pour Ubuntu Studio
Imho, we need more available professional solutions like Harrison Mixbus (audio) or Corel (graphics). Lightworks (video) seems to be on the way. But this is not enough.

So I will continue to spend my free time for Ubuntu Studio. And dreaming to be paid to do that one day...
