Hi all! :-)

Hi,
I am Carlo(z).
I am in London, in my kitchen :slight_smile: atm
Started with Ubuntu at its very beginning, in 2004 (?), being a heavy Debian user at the time.

Have not really been very close to this space since 2014 or so (I guess I missed a lot of drama, eh? :slight_smile:
While remaining a big fan of FOSS, life and work took me somehow somewhere else

I am back? Maybe :smiley:
As a few other newbies here, I recently applied for a role at Canonical …

Take care
carloz

Hola!
Que tal? Or, Ca va? Or, Kak dela? Or, how is everyone? :grinning:

I am new to Ubuntu, came across it accidentally due to delving into no code tools and finding out about all things open source, but keen to get to know the community.

I’m a social media consultant for 8+ years now and love it, used my frustrations in my industry to start working on software applications to improve social media workflow to make AWESOME social media accessible to those who don’t spend their careers doing it like me :+1:

Recently applied to the Social Media Specialist at Canonical, so hopefully will become a bigger part of the community. Keen to ensure we’re the right fit for each other. So could anyone please share any and all of your experiences of working for Canonical? Thanks a million! :slightly_smiling_face:

Hi everyone!
I’m Mateusz from Poland but currently I, live in Norway.
I applied to Canonical as a Fullstack Web Developer. I know I’m not qualified to the job cause I’m still in the process learning JS. I started course 4 months ago and I liked what I was learning.

I always enjoyed solving puzzles and riddles. Every time I’m coding it’s a puzzle, problem to solve so that’s the best for me. I’m eager to find and learn more.

I was using Ubuntu like 10 years ago. I also tried others Linux systems like Mint and other names that I don’t remember. But Ubuntu was my favourite one.

About me:
I like hiking and camping, photographing, reading books sci-fi (but more sci) and watching movies. I’m interested in astronomy and physics.

Wish you all the best.

Hello, Ubuntu users,
This is quite an interesting platform. Are we all here interested in starting our journey with Canonical?

I am a digital marketer. Studied this, worked in the digital space, and studying it again now (since we know how fast everything is changing)

Who here applied and get their dream job? Any advice? Or we are all newbies waiting for a miracle? :blush:

Kind regards and best of luck to all,
Simona Balabanova

Hello! I can’t create a new topic but I’m guessing there is a cool-off period?

I first installed Ubuntu back in 2007 as a college student. I’ve wandered off into other distributions but keep circling back. I don’t use Linux on the desktop as much a I used to be looking forward to changing that soon. Multipass in particular has drawn me in as a handy tool.

Hello :star_struck:

New here and poking around the community.

I recently applied for a role at Canonical. Eager to learn more about Ubuntu.

Hello everyone, I’m Kubra and I’m so excited to join this vibrant ubuntu community! I’m a UI/UX designer who loves innovation.
Over the years I’ve developed my expertise in UI/UX and I’m always looking for exciting collaborations, but what really ignites my spirit is interesting projects with team collaboration.
It mobilises me for any kind of development.I firmly believe in the power of collaboration - the fusion of different perspectives, talents and ideas. So, if you are working on a project that could use a dash of design, count me in!
Let’s bring our collective brilliance to the fore and create something extraordinary. :star2:
Outside of work, you can find me in the field of games and software. I’m also a big fan of the Gaming industry.I can’t wait to connect with you amazing people. Drop me a message or hit that follow button and let’s embark on this journey of creativity and innovation together! :bulb::rocket:

Yayy hello! Yes, seems we are all here for the Canonical applications, and, to be honest, it’s an honour to start this way, feeling and being part of an already existing community where everyone loves the freedom of creation and accessibility.

I’m going to introduce myself better in a comment I’ll leave above, but yes, to start with, I’d like to say that I’m a digital creature too, from Barcelona (Spain), and my specialities are graphic design, digital and visual design, and UI/UX Design. Also, I’ve graduated in Communications (and Graphic Design, ofc), which I believe it helped me to understand people interactions and to be opened to listen different perspectives. Tbh, I truly believe that a good designer needs to be always an excellent listener; it will raise him/her/us to wherever we want to go, from the most deepest valleys to the most highest mountainssss.

Let’s gooooo! Welcome everyone :smile:

Here I am again!

I was thinking about what I could share about myself when a memory came to mind. I remember when I was 6ish years old (I was born in 1996), at a time when Apple’s macOS wasn’t as trendy as it is today, that my father was very insistent at telling me and my syster that we needed to learn about Linux, about its community, and how this open operating system works. All of our computers ran on Ubuntu at that time (my fathers cloud pc is running still with Linux), and we truly felt fortunate to be using this open system, which felt muuuuch muuuuuuch better than Windows.

Little by little my father explained us that this operating system was (and is) created by humble individuals who believe(d) in freedom, accessibility, and that everything they do is for the sake of humankind, for the innovation and progress.

My father, who is a computer expert, fast-learner, curious and self-learner was absolutely right, and thanks to him I’m here and, most importantly, I’m the human being I am Today. So, inifinite thanksssss to my dear dad whom I love eternally.

Do you guys have any similar experience?

I’m reading you… :nerd_face:

Hello Ubuntu Community!

I’m Hazem Soussi, a 25-year-old passionate individual born on August 2, 1998. My journey began in Tunisia, where I earned a diploma with two cycles. The first cycle led me into the exciting realm of IT, focusing on network administration and Linux kernel system management. Since 2017, I’ve been intricately involved in manufacturing ISOs for various Ubuntu versions.

As my curiosity expanded, I delved into the realm of ethical hacking, mastering tools and implementing security measures such as Fortinet VPN and UFW. Transitioning into my second cycle, I’ve ventured into the captivating world of cloud computing as a system moderator. I actively engage with DevOps tools and currently explore the intricacies of Kubernetes and various other open-source technologies.

Eager to contribute and connect with the Ubuntu community, I bring a wealth of experience and enthusiasm for the world of open source. Let’s embark on this exciting journey together! :rocket:
