I’m happy to say that I recently got accepted to Ubuntuweblogs.org! Thanks to Tiago Faria, the maintainer of the site, for letting me aggregate my Ubuntu and Open Source articles here.
A brief introduction is probably in order. I’m a Computer Engineering student at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, USA. I’m the vice president of my fraternity on campus, and I love to swim, and I work for a local startup.
I love flipping bits, and I love solving complex low level problems, so I tend to gravitate towards coding in C. Thats not to say I neglect scripting skills of course, and can do bash or python scripting. Areas of interest of mine are codec-level multimedia, 3d graphics, driver/kernel development, and mathematics software.
- I’m a small contributor to Compiz Fusion, where I write/maintain/play with my branch of extra window animations. Check out some of my work here and here.
- I also do work with VLC and am working on revamping some of the backend API’s VLC uses to handle audio filters.
- I’m on the road to Ubuntu Membership. I know how to package debs (more or less 😉 ), and am avid to learn more, and help out where I can. I’m also a member of the Michigan Ubuntu Loco team.
- I’m not just a software guy, I love working with low level stuff, like the drivers or microcontrollers, as well as designing physical circuits.
So once more, I hope you find my blog a useful source of information, and feel free to comment!
