my name is Michal and I’m the administrator for the Czecho-Slovakian Ubuntu community. Ever since I’ve started using Ubuntu back in the 2007, I’ve made the effort to help the less experienced users in our community. After a while the activity in our forum dwindled and I’ve moved on to mostly spreading the word in person within my wide circle of acquaintances.
After meeting up with a great many awesome members of the European Ubuntu community in Paris (Ubucon Europe 2017) I’ve dedicated myself to the efforts of reviving our local community. I’ve become the administrator of our Ubuntu CZ/SK website and forum, our Telegram support group and have started to man the stands and speak about Ubuntu at events happening mostly in Czechia. I’ve been present at multiple years of LinuxDays in Prague, DevConf and OpenAlt in Brno. I’ve also helped with stands at FOSDEM (virtual in 2022, regular in 2023) and Linux App Summit 2023.
My Launchpad account is at: tylnesh in Launchpad
I don’t have any code contributions as there aren’t many Java desktop apps, however I would like that to change in the future as I’ve recently started working on a pet project in Flutter and hope to contribute code to the newly created Flutter applications shipped in Ubuntu.
My plans for the future concerning Ubuntu is creating a more vibrant and welcoming community in Czechia and Slovakia, bringing in more people that could contribute in not only code, but translations, documentation, support, etc. Personally, I would also love to host UbuCon Europe in our region. Failing that, I will keep on reaching out to people on the outskirts and slightly push them to take more active role in the community.
