My name is Sam Rose, I am 19 years old and I am currently studying a degree in Computer Science (about to go into my second year). I am really interesting in getting involved in Open Source projects because I have been benefiting from them for a number of years now and I feel it is time for me to give back to the community.
I keep a blog and it can be found at http://lbak.co.uk/blog
Ubuntu and me
I started using Ubuntu roughly a year ago but it is only in the last few months that I really got the feel for it and made the switch from Windows entirely. It has been about 6 months since I logged into my Windows partition to do anything other than play Diablo 2 or Warcraft 3.
I really enjoy the sense of real freedom that you get. It really suits my mindset to be able to explore everything about the software I am using (even though I will openly admit I am a newbie at it and rarely know exactly what I am doing!). I love to learn new things and expand my knowledge of computing and Ubuntu really lets me do this in a friendly and easy to use environment.
Areas of Interest
I don't really have a specific area of interest. I just want to learn how it all works and I will happily help out in any area just to gather experience and give back to the project.
I'm pretty easy to contact. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org (Launchpad: https://launchpad.net/~samwho) and I'm in the UTC timezone (which I believe is the same as GMT?) so I'm usually available from when I wake up to when I go to bed which is roughly midday to 4am provided that I am not attending lectures at University or eating junk food while gaming with my housemates.
