About Me


  • I've been 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 its great philosophy. In May 2007 I've signed the Ubuntu CoC to be completely commited with this community.

Local Community

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

  • 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 in Argentina. This foundation aims to release PCs with Ubuntu and FOSS software. This training was held from September to December 2008.
  • In November 2008 I had 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 stall, conferences and an installation room to help users who want to use Ubuntu in their PCs/notebooks, solving from complete installations to issues with video, audio, network configurations and graphics desktops tuning. Due to limitations on the Internet link of the radio, I took a repository server updated one day before, with all the ISO images for the 8.04 and 8.10 Ubuntu/Kubuntu/Xubuntu, to burn CDs, download and update packages for the people.
  • Since October 2008, I've been also maintaining main contents of the Argentina LoCo Team website - Ubuntu-ar - (publishing news, tutorials, translation - General and Leadership CoCs into Spanish - editing pictures to put there so as to make a "cozy" website for all the members and users. I am using Bazaar and Launchpad with Mariano Mara (Marplatense) to update some sections and maintaining all the website structure.

  • I've carried out all the necessary actions to get metallic Ubuntu badges for the Jaunty Jackalope release party being successful at it.
  • 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 chosen Ubuntu ?" (with Miguel Sajnovsky) keynote conference (an Ubuntu Community related presentation)
  • I was 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 sub-forum, every day of the week from 7:30AM to 12:00PM 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 go complicated, aiming that everybody observes the CoC, moving old threads to the correct section and collaborating with other mods with things such as cross postings, bad users behaviour, post some help message in other sub-forums (such the Chilean one) and making translations into Spanish for those written in English (there are too many people in Latin America who cannot write or read in English).

I would like to

  • Make the first Ubuntu conferences annual schedule. I am working on it right now, making a project inside my work (a national insurance company) and beginning the first conversations with the Nacional Buenos Aires Graduates Association to make an additional annual schedule.
  • Carry out all necessary actions in order to train people in Ubuntu and make them part of the community, in this way the work team would become stronger and broader.
  • Last but not least I strongly believe and intend to strengthen and reach a greater participation and integration in the Ubuntu Community of South American LOco teams.
