== About Me == == Team Participation ==
Line 17: Line 14:
My name is Nathan Handler. I've been using Ubuntu since August of 2006, when I installed [[https://wiki.ubuntu.com/DapperDrake|Dapper Drake]]. Since then, I have been active on the [[http://ubuntuforums.org|Ubuntu Forums]] and with development on [[https://launchpad.net/|Launchpad]]. I am currently running Ubuntu 8.10, [[https://wiki.ubuntu.com/IntrepidIbex|Intrepid Ibex]].

== Contributions ==

I've been an active member of the forums since I began using Ubuntu in August of 2006. During that time, I have gone from being the type of person who is always asking questions, to the type of person who answers them. Since I knew how aggravating it could be to not have your questions answered, I decided to join the [[https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UnansweredPostsTeam|Unanswered Posts Team]]. As a member, I attempt to answer questions that have not received any attention. I also tag these posts using the [[http://ua.codechunk.net/|Unanswered Posts Team's tracker]]. This allows me to come back to questions that I attempt to resolve, and verify if my solution worked. It also allows me to request help from other team members if I am unable to resolve the issue. I am also a member of the [[https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Beginners/Team|Ubuntu Forums Beginners Team]]. As a member of this team, I try to help new users by answering their questions on the forums.

During the Gutsy development process, I decided to start giving back to the community by patching bugs. [[https://wiki.ubuntu.com/EmmetHikory|Emmet Hikory (persia)]] helped teach me the basics of patching bugs. Thanks to his patience, I was able to successfully patch several bugs prior to Gutsy's release.

I was unable to participate in the development process of Hardy because of school.

For the first part of the Intrepid development cycle, I spent a lot of time syncing and merging packages from Debian. This was the first time I attempted to merge packages, and I really learned a lot. After the Debian Import Freeze, I started focusing my attention on patching bugs. During this development cycle, I was [[http://daniel.holba.ch/blog/?p=136|interviewed]] by [[https://wiki.ubuntu.com/DanielHolbach|Daniel Holbach]] during his Unsung Heroes… the Sponsoring Queue series.

I am a member of the [[https://edge.launchpad.net/~5-a-day|5-a-day team]] on [[https://launchpad.net/|Launchpad]]. This group provides me with a daily goal of fixing 5 bugs. I do not meet this goal every day, but it gives me something to work towards.

On Friday, June 13, 2008, I gave my first [[https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Cheater7/Lectures/Merges_080613|lecture]]. It was given on IRC, and it was about how to merge a package from Debian.
== Goals/Plans For The Future ==

* To continue learning the various MOTU-related tasks

* Eventually, I hope to become a [[https://edge.launchpad.net/~motu|MOTU]].
