 * 2009: Python class for beginners: I used to co-maintain the forum for asynchronous python classes in Greek language: http://forum.ubuntu-gr.org/viewforum.php?f=55 - Several people helped and participated in the project (thank you people!). The project also led to the translation of the python book "[[http://www.swaroopch.com/notes/Python_el:%CE%A0%CE%B5%CF%81%CE%B9%CE%B5%CF%87%CF%8C%CE%BC%CE%B5%CE%BD%CE%B1|A byte of Python]]" (big thanks to the translators!!). The classes are still helpful, full of information and tips for beginners.

My name is Dimitrios - Georgios Kontopoulos and my nickname is evolgen. I know Elias from the Ubuntu-gr forum, where he serves the community as a moderator. He is always helpful, patient and polite to everyone and has helped me many a time. The way he offers his knowledge and help to the community is an excellent example of application of the Ubuntu Code of Conduct.

My name is Konstantinos Spalas(konnn).Elias Epirotes is an active person in Greek Ubuntu forum.The last two years serves forum not only as a simple member but as a moderator,too.His linux knowledge is pretty deep and he wills to help anybody who faces any problem.I think that his ability in translating helps introducing Ubuntu in Greece.

Hi! My name is Savvas Radevic (medigeek). Elias is actively participating at the ubuntu-gr forum. If you look at his [[http://forum.ubuntu-gr.org/search.php?author_id=1138&sr=posts|posts]] you'll see many notices to forum newcomers, explaining the required steps to help resolve their issue. Being a moderator, I noticed Elias to cut, paste, merge and delete posts (as required). Always improving the quality of the forum and always helping to categorize threads properly! All in all, a priceless member of the Ubuntu Greek community. [[medigeek]]

I am Simos Xenitellis (Ubuntu Member). I have known Elias for the last three years as a co-moderator at the Ubuntu-gr forum. He is one of the star contributors of the forum that manages to create a friendly environment for newcomers to ask questions and get quality support. The forum is approaching 8,000 members and his continued work is much needed. He helped during our recent translation marathon, and we achieved [[http://people.canonical.com/~dpm/stats/ubuntu-11.04-translation-stats.html|97% translation completeness for Ubuntu 11.04]].
