Hello, my name is Bert Desmet. I am now 21years old, and I'm still going to school. I live in Belgium, Kruishoutem, near Ghent. I follow lessons at the Kaho Sint-Lievens high school. Currently I'm doing second bachelor Electronics-IT. My hobbies are: listening to music (rock and electro), going to some parties, having fun with my friends. And I like programming (Java, C#, C++, C and a bit python) and scripting (PHP). I am always in for new technologies (maybe that is why I like fedora that much?).

Hello, my name is Bert Desmet, I am 22years old and I live in Belgium, Kruishoutem, near Ghent.  
  
About 8 years ago I started with Linux, when my older cousin installed Debian on an old pc. I was 13 or 14 years old, and had never heard of Linux before, but I liked it like euh, immediately. It was running with Gnome, and I still like Gnome more than KDE, but that's something personal. when Fedora core 2 was released, I switched to Fedora, and stayed with Fedora. But I have also tested other distro's like Ubuntu, Mandriva, Slackware, ..., ...

I think it would also be great if we could live stream te most important sessions, and make them available later on our wiki. I already team up with people like Yaakov Nemoy to make this happen. this would be very important for people that want to attend more than one session at the time - which is impossible without IRC- So I hope we can make this project a success!
+
 
+
I also want to do some technical sessions. I think it would be perfect to do these 3 sessions -How to start with Fedora, how to add and remove software, and getting started in the fedora community- together, and by the same person, that way I can make one long 'beginner' track, for newbies, or people that just want to hear my opinion about some basic stuff. I would do the 'getting started with fedora community' together with Yaakov, because maybe he sees things in a different perspective, and that way we can make one kick ass presentation.
+
 
+
next to the starter track, I want to speak about GIT, not about the special shizzle you can do with it, but about what matters to coders.. how to start with it, and how to use it fast via command line as well as via some GUI software. Because maybe there will be Fedora users, even developers, that don't really like doing everything in terminal windows..
+
 
+
I also want to do a pitch session, but I don't want to tell you guys *yet* what it will be, but I can promise you this: it will be fun, and you'll probably  learn some new things!

[edit] Bert Desmet

Bert Desmet

Hello, my name is Bert Desmet, I am 22years old and I live in Belgium, Kruishoutem, near Ghent.

My first encounter with Linux (red hat) was when I was 14years old. My nephew installed Red Hat on our old family computer, and I used it for surfing and chatting. I only really started with Linux recently, when I started college. I knew what was out there, and seeing that (almost) only Windows is used at my college got me going. I knew there were alternatives, and I followed the IT courses. So I wanted to prove to my professors that Linux is a valid alternative.

I started in the community in January 2009, and I haven't got a moment of regret yet. I help out where I can, but my primary role is being an Ambassador, and being the spins wrangler for the fedora spins SIG. I am also always available to assist with Fedora problems.
