José Antonio Rey
My name is José Antonio Rey. I'm a Ubuntu Member from Peru, who is trying to do things better every day. I contribute with Ubuntu Community as much as I can. I am part of the Ubuntu-PE Council.

Ubuntu 13.04 Raring Ringtail
At the time, I am a student in secondary school (high school), although I'm about to leave school for university :). Should I mention I also love music and photography?
- Translations to Spanish
- Answering questions on Launchpad (I have been on the top 10 contributors for Answers)

- Giving and helping with the Ubuntu Classroom Team
- Translating UWN to Spanish (left ahead because of time constraints)

Tweaking a greetbot for LoCos to use. (Can be found at lp:~jose/+junk/ubuntu-pe-greetbot, still in progress.)
- Ubuntu-PE IRC ops
Running bots for Ubuntu-PE (JoseBot) and Ubuntu-CO (ubuntu-co-bot).
- Being part of the Ubuntu Youth Council
Running Ubuntu on Air!
- Become an Ubuntu Member - Done
- Try to expand the use of Ubuntu in Peru. - What's good around here is that if you enter a department store, you will see PCs running under Lucid. Not the last LTS or the last stable release, but it's a good first step!
- Converting more friends to Ubuntu (already three done!)
- Convert my school to Ubuntu (I have already tried to but they want to stick with CentOS, I will insist)
Become part of the LoCo Council or the Community Council
LoCo Council Ideas
If I have the chance to be elected as a LoCo Council member, I would speak from my previous personal experience with my LoCo Team. Ubuntu Peru was a team about to be dead, but I took the initiative to try and revive it, and is now in a good state.
One of the things that I am willing to do, as you may have seen, is get LoCo Teams back on the road. Trying to revive dead LoCos and get them running all good would be one of my main goals.
Also, I would like to contribute to all current ideas and discussions, and speak from previous experiences (as I have already stated), always considering LoCo Teams in all situations - active, inactive, wanting to be revived, with or without many funds, etc.
If you know me and have something nice to say, please leave a comment here.
Jose, although a adolescent like me, is a very hard-working person towards promoting Ubuntu across the world. Either as a Local Community contact, or as the Ubuntu on Air! leader, he has demonstrated his experience in leading several efforts. I'm sure the LoCo council will find him a useful and very passionate member:) -- smartboyhw 2013-09-15 14:52:51
José is a friend and a co-worker in the Peruvian LoCo Team, he has been doing a excellent job as team contact and web maintainer. He definitely should be part of the Ubuntu LoCo Council !!! -- dante 2013-09-15 14:52:51
Jose is a wonderful guy! I know him since long time ago. He is a great member of Ubuntu-pe, where he has been elected as council member for his contributions to the grow of the community in his country, actually he and I are studying the chance of making some projects together. In my opinion, Jose would be an great member on the Membership board. - SergioMeneses
José Antonio ha sido mi alumno durante todo este año, y en el corto periodo de tiempo que lo conozco me ha podido demostrar su capacidad y habilidad con la informática. Durante todas las clases, él terminaba rápido sólamente para entrar a Launchpad y ver qué podía hacer en su tiempo libre. Realmente creo que merece ser miembro de Ubuntu, porque me ha demostrado que es una persona comprometida con lo que hace, y, a pesar de su corta edad, da lo mejor de si mismo para que él y todos tengan una buena experiencia con Ubuntu y su mundo.

Nombrar a José Antonio Rey es nombrar a alguien que se compromete al 300%, que da todo de si mismo para hacer todo bien. Perfecto es poco para él, siempre trata de ir más alla de lo que uno puede pensar, para poder lograr una satisfacción propia y en los demás. He estado en sus exposiciones sobre Ubuntu, y me parece que describó muy bien los puntos básicos, y las ventajas. Incluso, unas cuantas personas fueron curiosas y quisieron probar la experiencia desde el mismo día. Si es que yo pudiera votar por su membresía, de ninguna manera le daría un +1, yo podría darle un +100. Luis Fernando Barba - vanskatedc
