I recently finished my Bsc Molecular Lifesciences at Wageningen University & Research Center.
I have been using linux for about 5 years now and after trying Fedora products (core 4, 5 and 6) briefly and without succes in the past, in the summer of 2008 Yaakov convinced me to try Fedora 9. Since then I have used Fedora on my workstation/laptop and I am very impressed by the community behind the distribution and would like to contribute to it in the future.
In my spare time I like to work on video-art with my team, called Puik., at concerts and parties and I am currently involved with the developers of Dyne.org in enhancing and using their FreeJ software.
Sometimes I work for a dutch company called OGD (Operator Group Delft) where I met Jeroen at two workshops he organized (software packaging and OGD's two-day Advanced Linux Course). I plan to get my LPIC-I and II certificates and if I continue to work there I might apply for RHCE in the future.
Activities within Fedora
For now I'm just lurking and getting oriented, but I plan to package and test science/chemistry and multimedia (FreeJ) related software.
I am also an Ambassador for Fedora within the Netherlands at events such as HAR 2009. And together with Yaakov I have organized the dutch Leonidas Release Party.
In the beginning of 2010 I will travel in India for 4.5 months and I hope to meet some ambassadors and developers there.
