Short Biography

I was introduced to Debian through my engagement in Raspberry Pi projects, which allowed me to pursue my interests in ham radio and scientific studies. As I delved deeper into coding, I started creating my software and basic Debian packages for my use. My enthusiasm for open-source software became a driving force in my journey. I realized that I wanted one of my packages to benefit a broader audience, encompassing Debian, Raspberry Pi, and Ubuntu users. To achieve this, I embarked on a path to integrate my package into the Debian repository, making it accessible to a wider user base.

Throughout this process, I immersed myself in Debian packaging, gaining a profound appreciation for the robust and interconnected Debian ecosystem. Witnessing the collaborative efforts of the Debian community, I was inspired to become an active member of this community.

In my Debian journey, I have taken on the responsibility of maintaining the 'a2d' package, specially designed for ham radio enthusiasts. Additionally, I am focusing on discovering and introducing new scientific packages to Debian. My involvement in Debian reflects my commitment to open-source principles and my desire to contribute to the growth and development of the Debian ecosystem.
