That’s my blog… Life and Linux

Welcome back on blog.3v1n0.net….

Me, behind UbuntuSalve gente! Oh, no ora si parla “inglese” via….

Hi there!
This is the first blog post here after soooo many years… Something like almost 7 years, really?!?

Oh, yes… You all thought that I was dead as a blogger I guess, and well mostly I am as my time for writing really went below 0 during this time, and then… Well as always I wanted to keep this thing updated following “my rules” of keeping the timeline in sync with actual events, but this failed everytime… And so, yeah here we are after so much time!

The main reason why I become unresponsive during these years was that instead of writing text, I moved to write code (for real) and I found it much more fun and useful for the people around me.

More importantly during this period my commitment with the Free Software  increased and I  joined or submitted patches to various projects such as Compiz, Openmoko, EFL (Enlightment Foundation Libraries), GNOME, and… Well how you might think from the pic, Ubuntu.

Ubuntu took a very important role in my life since about the last months of 2010, when Unity, was proposed as the new default desktop environment, I liked a lot the idea, but it was still a new baby with many missing features and bugs and so I decided to jump on the boat to give my help to make Unity the best desktop.
This involvement lead me to join to my first, beloved, UDS in Budapest where I met for the first time a lot of “ubuntu-dev-heroes”. Once back I continued contributing a lot, as I enjoyed so much that experience that I wanted to make it something more than just an hobby…
And well, long story short, I’m now working at Canonical for more than 2 years as a Software Engineer for the Unity Shell! I love this job and I think we’re doing great things, trying to make the Ubuntu vision happen in every form factor.

You might be able to read more about this experience on my Google+ page or looking at my opensource contributions at ohloh.

PS: But… Is still anyone reading? 🙂

    In effetti eri sempre tra i miei feed ma ho dovuto riflettere per capire chi fossi B-)

    Insieme a Pollycoke sei stato sempre il mio blogger preferito (mondo linux e non). Sono contento che tu sia diventato coder Canonical. Ubuntu è stata una mamma informatica per molti di noi. Stima e ammirazione incondizionata per te e un grande grazie per tutto il pesce
    Tanta buona fortuna Marco.

  • Grazie!
