Joel Bryan Juliano
I love GTK+ programming, and very enthusiastic about GNOME and Linux. I like solving problems, and providing software solutions to make life in linux easy.
I love to design attractive HIG compliant GUI interfaces and make them work seemlessly. I'm obsessed with GUI attractiveness and functionality, I try to learn the designs from Mac OSX, Windows Vista, and other OS's. But a too contemporary GUI design turn me off, KDE got lot's of things that a user don't really need. I pity new users trying to navigate in KDE.
Software Design & Linux Involvement
I previously worked as a Technical Consultant while I'm a University student, and still haven't finished college, just got stumbled a little (or alot?) :-). I in-house-develop their ERP, POS systems and done some migration to Fedora Core 1 (2003), while I was there.
And while in AMA Computer University, Makati, I worked as a Student Assistance in the IT department, where I deploy Fedora Core 2 servers (2004) to handle DHCP, Squid Proxy, tasks. We have also deployed dual-boot Ubuntu 5.04 with Windows XP to 300 computers (2005).
In June 2006, I will migrate the database to Ubuntu Server, and Dapper Drake to more than 1000 computers.
As a college student, I worked on numerous thesis, software projects (for other kids, including professors). Some GTK+ based ported to Windows, some web based, some GTK+ in Fedora.
I love nature, plants, minimalistic contemporary architectures. Alot of those things really affect my software design.

It seems they got all the answers in some questions, and sometimes, they are the only ones I asked questions, because they give me honest answers, even saying frugal, and hurtful words that can hurt, at least, they are honest. their philosophy of life is so simple, it amazes me!

Music is the language of the soul, Music communicates directly through your emotions, through your heart, good music becomes an obsession for me, I think Music is one of the most wonderful things god had given us, it's an art that cannot be replaced.
And I love computers, I have a deep attachements with computers. I shared a lot of history with them, I grew up my childhood days with them, and I even got hard moments with them, I grew up with computers are my only friend, But I've learned eventually that there's other' faucet in life that can make me complete.
I like open source, because it's a very kind, and ethical system, like sharing codes, and giving away free time to develop a software, it's a world of sharing talents.
About me, I make changes, I make it all happen, I'm not affraid to fail, I decide things for better or for worst with the best of my abilities, with the most righteous way I know.
