Welcome to the UBports community! Introduce yourself here!

  • Hello Guys,

    my name is Sven Jütte, I am 24 and working as an C# Software developer. I alway want wo help on an Open Source projekt and follow Ubuntu Touch since the first time i hear about it. And now i habe the chance to be a part of this awesome phone os.

    By the way i am from Germany but live in Austria.


  • Hi folks,

    I'm Mike Sheldon, I've spent the past three years working on the phone full time at Canonical, mostly working on the on-screen keyboard and the download manager, but also doing odd bits and pieces on content-hub and the web browser. In my spare time I also created a bunch of my own apps for the phone including Podbird and CuteSpotify and also ported a few things like ScummVM.

    I'm not entirely sure what my free time's going to look like in the near future, but I'm happy to help out where I can 🙂

  • Hello,

    I'm Piotr Mitana, I'm 25 and I live in Poland. I use Ubuntu desktop since I think 7.10 or 8.04. About 9 months ago I've bought Meizu Pro 5 Ubuntu Edition and it is my daily driver since then.

    I am a software developer, using mosty Javascript and Java in my current job, but have done some Scala, D, a little C++/Qt 4 and a bit of QML. I'm not sure if I will have enough time to help in OS' or core apps' development, but I will definitely throw in some testing, my feedback and ideas to discuss. And maybe someday I'll manage to start helping with the code as well.

    I am also currently planning to create my first application for phones and convergence.

  • Hi guys

    I am Miguel Menéndez (mimecar) and I have worked with Ubuntu Touch since its launch. I work among other things as a Java programmer and in my spare time I am writing an Ubuntu Touch programming course. I started in August last year in Spanish and I am translating it into English right now.

    For the course chapters I have already written (webapps and QML) I see that it is simple to program for Ubuntu Touch. The problem is to have a bit of basic. QML is not complicated and you can program applications quite quickly.

    I hope I can help continue Ubuntu Touch and maintain the incredible community behind.

    A greeting.

  • Hello,

    I'm Thatoo, almost 30, I have a french passport living/travelling between France and other places (Iran lately).
    I have been testing Firefox OS and Ubuntu Touch since I've got my Nexus 5. Cyanogenmod 13 is in primary ROM but I use FFOS for daily usage (I've made the persian keayboard of FFOS). I have been testing ubuntu touch regularly (I won't say for every update but many).

    I have been waiting for convergence since I heard of it. It would be really sad if it doesn't come up to life.
    I'll keep testing it till I feel I can use it daily.

    Best regards,

  • Greetings everyone,

    my name is Michele and I am a professional UX/UI designer with strong data analysis skills and a solid knowledge of front-end markup + coding (the usual HTML/JS/CSS mix). I can do wireframes, prototypes, run and debrief user testing sessions and focus groups and I'm an Ubuntu user since Dapper Drake 🙂

  • Hi guys, I'm Robby Millar (armyofpunk) I am an Android developer knowing Java (learning) looking to learn and grow more with development and would love to help out keep Ubuntu touch alive.

    I've been following and using UT since its inception and have worked on a few apps for it.


  • Hi there!
    I'm Joan, a little cloned android recreated from an alternative diment... ehem, ehem... I'm the one publishing all those Interactive Fiction into the store.
    I love my main phone: bq E5 and my main tablet: bq m10.
    I have been helping translating and testing some apps. I'm here to give some support if I can.


  • Hi,

    my name is Taavi (@salarelv) and from Estonia. I am a frontend developer doing mostly JavaScript at my workplace. I have also done some small QML (+Qt) apps and want to work on the core apps if possible.
    Have Nexus 4 running UT. And a Jolla 1 as a daily driver. I hope we someday we can run the core apps on almost every platform.

  • Hi everybody!
    I'm Francisco Molinero (aka fmolinero). I lead the Ubuntu Spanish Translators team (https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuSpanishTranslators)
    I am a Ubuntu Member and I have a BQ 4.5 as unique phone by now. I want to contribute keeping alive Ubuntu touch modestly from my position of translator.

  • Hi all,
    the name is Peter Valachovič I am IT teacher from Slovakia, some years ago after finishing FIIT in Bratislava I've decided that I want to work on making world a better place, so I quit ERP systems maintaining and development and I teach on high school and help kids with studies in free time.

    My phone of everyday use is Ubuntu BQ 5 HD, I was thinking about translations to Slovak even earlier, although I haven´t started yet. I´ll gladly help with testing apps and if I´ll have time (which is not really often) I can help with some apps development too

  • Greetings to All

    I own an Aquarius E5 HD, bought it for simple calling, reading and writing text with nano and coding with python.
    Calling a friend without a intermission from some android-app.
    To have a little more controll about that, what the apps are doing. ( Its a lot of "KISS -Keep it Simple and Stupid" that i like on the "UbuntuPhone")
    I like your "we make it go" spirit and wish you the best for the future. (Dont lose hope, the interesting part is now starting 😉
    To me:
    linux-newbie (More Debian former Ubuntu-user)

    best wishes

  • Hi all,

    I am Sai, a 24 year developer from India who has previously contributed to gnome-music. Although I am a fan of music players, gnome shell as a desktop environment is not my favorite. When I heard the news of canonical scrapping I was taken aback and want to contribute to the development of yunit and ubports in any way I can.
    I was wondering if someone can help me get my dev environment set up. I am currently using arch linux with gnome shell on a lenovo thinkpad.


  • Hi everyone,

    I'm Stefano Verzegnassi, I'm 25 and I've been a community contributor and maintainer of some of the Ubuntu Touch projects.

    My relevant contribution to the official projects are the Document Viewer (and its LibreOffice integration) and the Terminal app (I've been maintaining it in its latter days, before it moved under the Canonical "umbrella").
    Other popular works I've been working on are UT Tweak Tool and InstantFX, which got a decent reception.

    Unlike the other stories above, I'm a Political Science student with a strong interest for technology and Open Source. I've been using Ubuntu since 2007 or so, and I started to follow the UT project for its ambitious vision.

    While I'm not yet sure of the time I could dedicate to the project, I'd be more than happy to help keeping UT alive. 😃

  • @sverzegnassi You are very welcome, Stefano. Even with little time budget you are an experienced App developer and we would invite you to move moving Apps to the OpenStore. Write me a PM for details 😉


  • Hey,

    I am Kristijan from Slovenia. I am not a programmer, but I have been using Ubuntu since 2009. I also own Ubuntu tablet M10 and Fairphone 2 (still on Android). I love to test beta programs, search for bugs and help with translations.
    I really hope to use Unity 8 as a convergence OS.


  • hi,
    I'm Lionel, 42 years old from France. I work as a software learning facilitator for adults. I own a BQ 4.5 acquaris as a daily driver and thanks to you @ubports hope i will keep it as long as possible ;-). I will pleased to contribute to the project if i can. As @sumansai14 said, would be nice to have a quick start guide for devs. cheers

  • @Flohack Sure, I'll be more willing to do some UX and UI design^_^

  • Hi,
    I'm Paul Hodgetts (@Jujuyeh). I'm a Computer Science student. I'm from Spain and I'm helping with spanish translations and giving some feedback. I own a Meizu Pro 5 as a daily driver.

    I wish I could help you with anything.
