Welcome to the UBports community! Introduce yourself here!
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.
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
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.
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^_^
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.

This is Nikhil from India. I am using Ubuntu Linux since last 5 years on my desktop and laptop. I also own Ubuntu Phone BQ Quaris E5 HD and using it as daily driver since last 1 year. Thanks to UBPorts for showing spirit of keeping Ubuntu Touch alive.
Hi, I'm Walter from Barcelona, Spain. I use a Bq Acquaris E5 HD with UT as my only smartphone, and I think it is the best phone I ever had. I hope we can keep these phones and others, and also complete the convergence one day. Keep up the good work, I will try to help as much as I can.

I want to get more involved in this project although I have little technical knowledge. I have a Fairphone with Ubuntu Touch that I like a lot. I hope I can help expand the project by disseminating it by the means I have.

@Jaime Hi Jaime, how does UT work on Fairphone?
Hello to all. I am Gabriele from Italy. I'm NOT a developer, I'm NOT a code expert, I'm NOTa geek ... but I love UT! (I own one of the first Aquaris E4.5). Thanks to everyone who can keep alive this operating system
Hi i'm Alessio from Italy
I use a Bq Acquaris E5 HD with UT as my only smartphone
I'm not a developer, I'm just a user. I still hope to be able to help
Thank you all for your work
hi, Andrew here. I use Ubuntu desktop and Ubuntu phone via an MX4 and just found out about Ubports. I've found Touch a bit mediocre to date, with a few too many niggles, and had heard Canonical had stopped, but seeing Ubports has renewed my interest! I just had a quick look at a few of the forums and appreciate you have some foundations to lay, but hopefully in time there will be some good development. I will see if I can do some testing in due course, if that helps (though I'm no Linux/Ubuntu expert by any means)
** Good luck **
I'm Ronnie (ronnietucker) and I'm the founder and editor of Full Circle Magazine (http://fullcirclemagazine.org). Now in its tenth year, FCM (as we fondly call it) is a free PDF magazine for all things Ubuntu. Including Touch.
I also do artwork. Both real world (pencil, watercolour, etc.) and digital (GIMP, MyPaint, etc.) and I'm hoping to install the UBports Touch on my M10 FHD.
If there's anything I can do to help just let me know.
I'm Erik from Germany and I've been following Ubuntu on my desktop since 9.04 and UT since it's beginning, bought an bq e4.5 and unfortunately sunk it in a river -.-
I've been watching UBports since it's beginning and allways wanted to contribute so i tried porting to an old tablet lying around (Samsung galaxy tab gt-p1000) however I'm not a dev so i couldn't even get it to build. Then time was running out and canonical came out with the bad news but UBports made me hope again so I want to try to help any way i can to make this project live on and succeed in the end ;-P.
For this purpose i would like to combine my introduction with a proposal to all those who like me can neither help on the code side nor with money: Why not try to help with documentation? I'll open up a new thread with details for my proposal since it is a little off-topic here...
Thanks to all those who contributed or/and are still contributing to the idea or show their solidarity!

I'm Peter. I've used Ubuntu for over ten years and Ubuntu Touch on my M10 HD ever since it was launched and love both. I'm not a dev but am keen to see Touch thrive and grow. Hoping the same for Unity. As an end-user I'm keen for your project to be successful. If I can do anything I will. At least I'll be cheering you all on.
