Short Biography

My initial Linux system is Ubuntu during my university life. When I learned Ubuntu is based on Debian, I started to learn more on Debian. I have been using Debian distribution for more than 10 years.

My primary area is to develop industrial-grade Linux for networking switches. I am also one of the working group members of IEEE 802.1 that develop the networking standard. Looking forward to bringing more awesome projects to Debian.
