Well, a bit about me.
I'm a guy (in case anyone had any doubt) in my thirties, born in mainland France and raised in Reunion Island.
I got a degree in Computer Engineering (design of hardware/software embedded systems) in the early nineties and have been working as a Support Technician on the Eurostar fast train in London, then a Programming Manager and a Project Manager for a railway product manufacturer for various projects in Asia.
Programming and computer-related technology have always been at the centre of my life, ever since I saw my first computer back when I was maybe 10. Since then I've tinkered and programmed and expanded the electronic of every computer I owned, crashing most in the process and getting electric shocks and burns too many times to count.
I got my Red Hat Certified Engineer Linux certification a while back and I've been enjoying expanding my research and knowledge in the world of Open Source for many years now.
That said, I'm not fiercely against Microsoft and I think they make some pretty cool technology that I find enjoyable to use, even though their commercial and marketing approaches leaves a lot to be desired.
In 1996 I got the opportunity to come to Asia where I now live and work.
