Hello Planet Debian!

Posted by berto on November 13, 2011

Hi all!

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!
