[[File:]] About Me

Hello, my name is Siddharth Shanbhogue. I am from Bangalore India. I have been using Fedora and other Linux based Operating Systems for more than 8 years now, and I am a novice when it comes to development, but I want to give back to the community that I have learnt so much from.

More About me

  • Pursuing a Master's Degree in Computer Applications at RVCE, Bangalore.
  • Learning to use FOSS, writing research papers based on FOSS and it's implementation
  • Multilingual in English (Fluent), Hindi (Fluent), Kannada (Fluent), Konkani (Native) and Japanese (learning).

What I Have Done

  • Worked on and built an LFS (Linux From Scratch) build in 2011, targeted at the student community.
  • Worked on a Network Login Management System for my College (based on Ubuntu clients & a Debian server)
  • Contribute tutorial posts to Linux blogs such as LinuxCandy.
  • Helped out friends, family (and strangers in IRC as well as in person) with installation, configuration of Linux based systems.
  • Regularly promote the use of FOSS in my peer community, through Seminars, guest lectures and more whenever possible.

Future Plans

  • Remaster a Fedora based System for my college (which is currently using remastered Ubuntu systems)
  • Begin contributing and continue to work on Linux based Systems and start application development as well.
  • Work more actively towards tutorial contribution to informative blog sites, including my own.
  • Work towards hosting and conducting FOSS events in my College and University.
