My name is Alberto Garcia and this is my first (well, second) post in Planet Debian. So I’ll introduce myself.
I’m a free software developer and enthusiast from Galicia, Spain. I studied computer science at the Corunha University, where I first heard about GNU/Linux and Debian. After leaving university I co-founded Igalia with a group of friends. We’ve been working on lots of different things during all these years, but some projects we’ve been particularly involved in include GNOME, Maemo/MeeGo and WebKit.
Although I’ve been using Debian for more than a decade now (my first -and still running!- installation was in 1997) and I’m quite familiar with the distribution, it wasn’t until a few years ago that I started maintaining packages officially.
Apart from software, my other main hobby is music. When I’m not using my computer you’ll find me at some concert (preferably small bands: I hate long queues, crowded places and being far from the stage). It’s no coincidence that my first Debian package was a Last.fm player 😉
I don’t have much more to add. I’d like to thank Ana for adding me to the planet, and I’m proud to be part of the Debian community!
