About the Introductions category

Hi, I am Alzadd from Philippines I majored in Mathematics and HR Management. I’d love to get along and connect with other people here. Hopefully I can get accepted as Junior HR Generalist position at Canonical.

Hello everyone,

I’m Janani from India. I’m a candidate for Kernel Maintenance Engineer - Ubuntu Linux at canonical. I am a software developer and an open source enthusiast. I have worked on many flavours of Linux OS like Ubuntu , Debian and BOSS(which is GNU Linux developed natively). I am very comfortable with using the CLI and open source tools.

I have been a member of OS team in my previous job. I have contributed in areas of Kernel patching , configuration, customisation and testing . I have worked on hardening the OS using Grsecurity. Debugging kernels and fixing runtime and compile time errors is a task which I do most often. I am good at writing shell and python scripts. I have good knowledge in containerising applications using Docker.

Hi all, I have been a Ubuntu user since, gosh, forever. I worked on some cool projects including deploying MAAS and customizing it a billion different ways. Anyway just thought I’d come on here and take a look around.

Super cool Ria, it sounds like you’ve gathered quite some expertise with MAAS. What was your favorite project?

Definitely the MAAS project for automated physical server deployment. It was quite involved as you can imagine. This was in a bank and you do need to fit everything around a maze of security but I did enjoy writing scripts and code to get things working.

Other than that in a previous role I also enjoyed architecting and building out content management systems using Wordpress and Drupal when I worked in that industry (engineering for high traffic public facing websites). It was heart stopping at times pushing something live and watching your app start to serve high volumes of traffic and wondering if things will break. We did news coverage for big events including US elections which are huge web traffic days.

On a side note, I also see you’re in Germany. I visited there earlier this year for the first time (Frankfurt, Nuremburg, Munich and Friedrichshafen) and also started learning German. I will go back next year with my family. I enjoyed it.

Oh banking, the requirements are a lot higher there, quite a feat. Have you considered contributing to MAAS? We have some opportunities here: https://maas.io/docs/how-to-give-and-receive-help

I’m glad you enjoyed Germany. You did the right thing to tour a few cities. I’m up in Hamburg, you should see it when you visit next time!

Feel free to DM me if you have questions.

Thank you. I’ll certainly look into that for MAAS. Hamburg and Berlin are also on my list to visit.

Hello everyone,

My name is Deborah and this is my first access to Ubuntu Discourse.

I am a candidate for the Social Media Marketing Specialist role at Canonical and I am eager to learn more about the company and the team.

I hope to learn more about the company culture and the team dynamics.

Any words of advice or wisdom would be greatly appreciated.


Hey, all, great to be here.

I’m new to the Ubuntu community, specifically came here because of the new Microcloud presentation from the UK that was mentioned on Slashdot.

I’ve been trying to set it up but having minor issues, but I don’t seem to have enough credibility yet to allow me to post. Hopefully I’ll gain enough trust soon to be able to participate fully…

Hi everyone! I’m Emily, a transgender Linux nerd. I just fixed up my launchpad account with updated information and now I got myself a fancy Discourse account as well! Haven’t touched Ubuntu in ages on the desktop side, although my server currently runs Ubuntu Server 22.04 LTS. I’m not quite sure how I’m going to contribute honestly. I used to help quite a bit in the Fedora community with operations there, maybe there’s something similar here? I’m also slowly but surely learning how to code, and I’d love to learn how to package as well! I’m excited to get started, getting to know everyone and contributing!


Hi @lp2skyline, so glad to have you in the community! What part of operations are you interested in? A number of our services are run by Canonical, but we do have a few projects run by community members that may have operational needs, including our flavors.

On packaging, you are in luck, we’ve had a bunch of folks working on updating the Ubuntu Packaging Guide. The current draft is here. What would be super helpful is if you could read through that guide and let us know about areas that are unclear or assume too much knowledge. Feel free to create a post in the community category on this discourse and I’ll get the right folks reading it.

What type of coding are you getting into?

@dnebing Looks like your post made it through! How are things going with microcloud? Would love to hear how you are using it and what you think.

Hello there! I’m new to the community and look forward to contributing however I can, with whatever skills that I have that may be useful to the community. :smiley:

I love a good puzzle and also enjoy the mundane, a natural nerd, in his natural habitat. I’ve been out of college for quite sometime, and like to learn new things everyday. I’m what you’d call a life long learner with an obession with Linux and programming.

Thanks for reading!
Mike (aka Michael)

Good to see you @michael-carbone! Tell us more about what you’ve been up to before, and where you field of interest is! Is it more on development, technical writing, or design? Any specific technologies you feel very comfortable with?
