Plans:

Self-remarks: I have been introduced to ubuntu by friend after much arguing. I started with 7.10 and soon after (8.04) I got seriously involved in the Greek Community forum, where I eventually became a moderator. At the about the same time I got involved in the translations in launchpad. I strive to help out members with problems as much as I can.

Here's a summary of my participation:

  • Helping out in forums
  • Helping out in IRC channels
  • Translations in launchpad

I categorised my activity below. Some forms of participation are repeated.

Noted past activity:

  • 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 "A byte of Python" (big thanks to the translators!!). The classes are still helpful, full of information and tips for beginners.
