New community member. Want to get involved!

Postby sjmur on Mon Sep 09, 2013 12:06 pm

Howdy all,

I'm new to the community but have been using mint on and off over the past few years. I have now settled down with a proper dual boot set up on my computer an am running Mint 15.

I want to get involved in the community from LUG point of view and event tech support. I know abit about Linux in terms of the Ubuntu/Deb based systems and want to help spread the word and educate folks on the advantages of Mint over Windows/OSX as much as possible. I'm all for usability and that's what attracted me to Mint.

I am based in Dublin, Ireland and would love to get some sort of community going here for Mint. I am already heavily involved with Mozilla as their Rep for Ireland and the small but new Irish Community so I'd like to branch out and help a what is an Irish Linux distro originally!

Tech-wise, I'd love to learn all I can and help Mint grow. I am a student programmer and know my way around Android (Java stack on a debatable Linux kernel..I know) and Web technology (so yes I love Firefox OS, its young but has promise!).

Anyway, just thought I'd say Hey!. You will be sure to see me around these forums asking stupid questions! I've also a small sorta hack blog in the pipeline that will be about different additions/tweaks to making Mint even cooler!

So thats me! Thanks to everyone who has done such an awesome job on Mint. I love it, and Cinnamon is by far my favorite DE out there.. and I've tried them all.. well..most.

Cheers!
