About Me


  • I'm using Ubuntu since February 2007 (Dapper). I have previous experience with Unix (Xenix and SCO) as system administrator and applications programmer in commercial enterprises. When I discovered Ubuntu, I decided to be an active member of Ubuntu community because of the amazing people you can find there and the great philosophy it has. On May 2007 I've signed the Ubuntu CoC to get a complete commitment with this community.

Local Community

  • I started my active local community participation organizing the Ubuntu Intrepid Ibex Release Party in Buenos Aires, supporting in many ways Tucuman and Cordoba RPs too (getting merchandising stuff and all the logistic management necessary to send it to each city from BsAs just in time for the parties, getting pictures from each party to publish them in the Ubuntu-ar web site, etc., etc.). In this BsAs II RP I have the toaster role, introducing the keynotes speakers for each presentation and closing the mini conferences thanking all the people there, audience and speakers, for their presence and their very good work done.

  • I've active participation in educational Ubuntu related training course for technical personnel of FundaciĆ³n Equidad, a foundation that refurbishes and donates PCs to schools and community educational institutions of Argentina that wants to release them with Ubuntu and FOSS software. This training was from September to December 2008.
  • On November 2008 I have an active participation in the Fabrica de Fallas (Bugs Factory) in FM Radio La Tribu, in Buenos Aires. A complete open and free weekend with an Ubuntu booth, conferences and an installation room to help users who wants to use Ubuntu in their PCs/notebooks, solving from complete installations to issues with video, audio, network configurations and graphics desktops tunning. Due to limitations on the Internet link of the radio, I brought a repository server updated one day before and with all the ISO images for the 8.04 and 8.10 Ubuntu/Kubuntu/Xubuntu desktop, server, i386 and 64 bits versions, to burn CDs, download and update packages for the people.
  • Also, I am maintaining main contents (publishing news, tutorials, translation - General and Leadership CoCs to Spanish - editing pictures to put there to get a "cozy" website for all the members and users) for the Argentina LoCo Team website (Ubuntu-ar) since October 2008, few weeks before II release parties. I am using Bazaar and Launchpad with Mariano Mara (Marplatense) to update some sections and maintaining all the website structure.

  • I've made all the necessary actions to get metallic Ubuntu badges for the Jaunty Jackalope release party.
  • I was in the organization committee of the First Argentina Ubuntu Day. Member of the talks evaluation board and one of the speakers of "Why I've choose Ubuntu ?" (beside Miguel Sajnovsky) keynote conference (an Ubuntu Community related presentation)
  • I've in charge of the full organization for Karmic Koala release party in Buenos Aires.

International Community

* Ubuntu Forums mod from May 29th 2009. I read all the messages posted in the Argentina LoCo Team subforum, every day of the week from 7:30AM to 00AM (of the next day) as a regular activity, moving those threads and posts that users put out of place (we have specific sections for Hardware, Software, Community and the General Threads sections), talking with the users via PM when the things goes complicated, aiming everybody to observe the CoC, moving old threads to the correct section and collaborating with others mods with things such cross postings, bad users behaviours, post some help message in other subforums (such the chilean one) and making translation to Spanish for those written in English (there are too many people in Latin America who not understand English for writing or reading).
