Welcome!!!! :D

Hey welcome to my site on the wiki, on this page I will describe all my contributions to Ubuntu, nice to meet you.

About Me

My name is Lina Castro, I am a software developer with specialization in mobile application development, I am a Linux enthusiast but mostly Ubuntu, I am always helping and contributing to the community in Colombia, my country of origin, I am currently the leader of the Ubuntu Colombia community and I am a member of the Council of the same.

In 2019 I was part of the Flisol Bogota, the largest free software festival in Colombia and Latin America, where thousands of people attended the different open source technology talks that were taking place on April 25, since Due to the pandemic this was carried out virtually.

I am currently working as a teacher at Platzi, a technology company well known throughout Latin America, where they teach programming topics & also servers (such as Ubuntu servers) and where I continuously promote and disseminate the use of technologies and free software for the entire community.

Hi there Ubuntu Community! I testified!!! Lina is an amazing member and her role in Ubuntu Colombia has been amazing for improving the community and even with several events around the globe during this difficult year. As a current ubuntu member and former part of the ubuntu communities, I strongly recommend her for the Ubuntu Membership in order to get her profile stronger and keep helping others. SergioMeneses

Lina Castro, She is a very active person, a free software enthusiast, and passionate about Linux, she has generated very important contributions to the community and to the dissemination of Ubuntu in Colombia. Jhosman Lizarazo

Lina is a new member of the colombian Ubuntu family who has supported several projects (organizational, talks) from her city, Cali. She`s been working very actively on the Podcast, which now became regular for Ubuntu user not only in Colombia but also others LatAm countries. Alexander Bejarano

The arrival of Lina has made a difference in the Ubuntu Colombia community not only because of her enthusiasm and passion for Linux or her technical support for new users but also because of the great initiatives and projects she has executed, the podcast is one of the most outstanding, the opportunity to communicate information about Ubuntu, GNU/Linux and computing in general to the whole world supported by experts in some specific topics has strengthened the connection of the community with the environment in general, making many more users interested in Ubuntu. Cristhian Echeverry

I am very happy that Lina arrived to our LoCo, she came with new energy, ideas and empowerment, and bring a new fresh air to the LoCo. One of the projects that she's been leading is the Ubuntu Colombia Podcast, which has been a great success. I think that she will lead the next generation of our community and why not, she will impact in Latam, and in the participation of women in tech worldwide. Lina Porras
