Hi, my name is Shane Fagan. Im from kildare in Ireland. Im a software development student. Ive been using ubuntu since 2007 after being introduced to it in college.

On the 7th of July 2009 I became a ubuntu member. I attended the Lucid UDS and contributed remotely in the Maverick UDS.

I am a developer (for 4 years now give or take) and I have a strong interest and help out where I can in upstream developments like Zeitgeist.

I help out with ubuntu-docs from time to time and ubuntu answers on launchpad. Bug reporting and testing of new ubuntu releases.

I love testing the new releases of ubuntu and the upstreams im exited by and showing off the new features to my friends (shamelessly trying to convert everyone to ubuntu Smile :) )
