Ubuntu Dustin is key active Ubuntu Budgie team-member for the past year. He has been instrumental in developing the backend website infrastructure that Ubuntu Budgie depends on. He uses his knowledge of all things Ubuntu on our key social media outlets to help out the Ubuntu Budgie community.

Always willing to learn new things especially to help not just Ubuntu Budgie, but also other projects and upstream with the Budgie Desktop developers and their GitHub issue tracker. Dustin has taken an active role with the 17.10 alpha working with Lubuntu to organise and run with the Alpha 2 release schedule.

Dustin has been keen to get involved with debian packaging and has packaged several software packages for Ubuntu Budgie. He as also been working with the Snap developers and is actively bringing this key knowledge to Ubuntu Budgie to help us utilise and transform what we do in the new exciting snap packaging methods.

Dustin in my opinion demonstrates clearly all things that would make him an excellent Ubuntu member. As project lead of Ubuntu Budgie I'm more than happy to endorse Dustin's application. -- fossfreedom 2017-08-02 18:21:20

Ubuntu I spent a couple of hours talking with Dustin at Linux Fest North West 2017 where he explained he wanted to transition from a consumer of Linux and open source to a contributor. He has certainly made that change and is now an active member of the Ubuntu Budgie team, a Snapcrafter and contributor to a number of Linux related podcasts and discussion channels where he generously shares his knowledge and experience. Dustin is a great ambassador for Ubuntu and would make a fine addition to the ranks of Ubuntu Members. -- flexiondotorg 2017-09-12 17:44:31
