Abdelhak Bougouffa

My name is Abdelhak BOUGOUFFA from Algeria, 22 years old, I'm an InfoTronic student (InfoTronique; Informatique et Electronique) at the University of Boumerdes (UMBB), I'm the president of the Computer Club in our university CIUB [1] and the creator/webmaster of his website, I'm also a self-made programmer/developer.

The beginning

In 2007 (I was 15 years old) I started learning programming, during one year; I worked hard to learn the basics of programming using the Visual Basic language. Then I moved to the development under the .NET Framework (using VB.NET then C#).

Descovering the Free and Open Source world

At the end of 2009, when I was learning Python, I discovered the amazing world of free and open source softwares, since; I'm a GNU/Linux user and after 3 years I've become a GNU/Linux System Administrator (under Debian, ArchLinux and Fedora/CentOS). And during the last 5 years; I teached people the free softwares culture philosophy and I teached them the how to install and use the GNU/Linux operating system.
