Hello Planet Ubuntu
19 diciembre 2009
Hi to all the readers of Planet Ubuntu!
Some days ago my Ubuntu Membership application was approved by the EMEA board so I’m ready to introduce myself to the Ubuntu family:
I’m a 29 years old guy from Spain called Antonio Sánchez. I am a Computer Science Engineer and I’m also studying to get my BSc in Marketing.
I work for Isotrol (Cannonical’s Gold Partner) in the Advanced Centre for ICT Schools Management, known in Spain as CGA. Nowadays, we are a team of 50 FLOSS enthusiasts whose main aim is to free the educational community from the IT stuff (600,000+ users). In order to achieve this objective, we have to manage the whole network of the ICT schools in Andalusia (400,000+ desktops and 3,500+ servers).
Moreover, CGA maintains Guadalinex Edu, distribution used in the desktops. Guadalinex Edu is an Ubuntu derivative which consists of educational packages from Edubuntu, general purpose applications of Guadalinex (our sister oriented to the citizen) and some new apps which we are developing for our users at this moment.
At the server side, we use Debian with a lot of stuff to install, deploy, upgrade and manage all the desktops.
Being an Official Ubuntu Member is for me a pleasant responsibility. I hope I can act as a positive externality for the Ubuntu Community; so, don’t hesitate to contact with me if you think I will be useful for you.
