My name is Oku, Onyeibo.  My friends prefer to call me two-hot, which is a literal translation of my name in English.  I lecture at the Enugu State University of Science and Technology, Nigeria.  I am an Architect by training but with sizeable passion for computers.  I learnt to code in BASIC as a teenager and later added some fundamental knowledge of C++, LISP, html, css, and Python.

Onyeibo Oku

Introduction

Twohot-wiki-image.png

Onyeibo delivers lectures on Computer Aided Design (CAD) and Computer Applications in Architecture at the Enugu State University of Science and Technology, Nigeria (ESUT). Apart from exploring the world of Building Information Modelling (BIM), he likes to practice BASIC, C++, LISP, HTML, and CSS scripting/programming in his spare time. These days, he does simple automation via Python scripting for Design Applications that support it.

Onyeibo's first experience with GNU/Linux was in 2006. The Distribution was Ubuntu (Dapper Drake). In 2008, he decided to take the Linux OS seriously when he discovered that it could host professional Software for Architectural Visualization and Design. The Distributions supported by vendors of such Applications were mostly Redhat Enterprise Linux, SUSE and Fedora. Fedora became his OS of choice by natural selection.
