My name is Paul Reiter (neopar), I live in Germany and I am working as a software developer for mobile robots.
I am using Linux since Ubuntu 6.06 (so I spent a lot of time configuring beryl, compiz, emerald… with a lot of pain around xorg.conf and fgrlx - my laptop with ati mobility radeon x1100 from 2007 is still doing well and is running bodhi linux now).
I have some coding experience (Pascal, Java, Python, shell scripting) but also in administration (Jenkins, Redmine), virtualization (VirtualBox / QEMU) and handling with OS images.
I own an BQ E5 Ubuntu Edition since first release and already coded some apps for it using Ubuntu SDK (QML + Python), but I never published them due ether some legal stuff or it was too special use case. Early last year I had to switch to Android (for managing some business issues via WhatsApp), so I had no clue what is going on in UT community for around one and a half year (just followed the canonical mailing list but it is dead since view months).
Even if I do not have much free time for family reasons at the moment, I want to participate in this friendly community to make the world a better place… or at least to build a stable alternative mobile os.
