my name is Ragni, and I'd like to contribute to the Ubuntu project. So
far I haven't, but I'd like to give something back to a project that has
changed and improved my life in so many ways.
During my theoretical and practical education as a journalist, a friend
introduced me to Ubuntu in 2005, when I was sick of an
almost-monopoly-OS we all know. It opened a whole new world to me,
giving me real and easier accessible control to my computer. Some
misconfiguring and X11-trashing was involved, of course. But I started
to understand more about how things work, and found this to be
encouraging. After finishing my journalism studies I started to take
courses in Computer Science at a distance teaching university in Germany.
Being a queer feminist activist and a tech interested person at the same
time, I hope to learn from the Ubuntu Women Mentoring, and give
My personal strengths:
- Journalism, PR and Teaching
- Organizing events
- Writing, Video and Audio planning, editing and producing
- German (native), English, Norwegian
What I want to learn/ am learning:
- Technical Editing
It would be great, if you had some advice for me, where to start, whom
to contact, how to get involved and what standards to follow.
Thank you for your attention!
