Candidates for May 2014 Maemo Community Council elections

The following candidates intend to stand for election to the Maemo Community Council.


So I might step forward then.

My introduction:

Hi, I am juiceme and I am running for Maemo Community Council.

Many of you might already know that I have been Maemo Council member for the previous period. I thought hard about stepping forward for re-election, but I might still have something to give for the community, even as I'd like to see new people join up.

My spark into joining came when I purchased a N9 device, my first linux-based mobile phone. Previously I had owned Symbian devices since early nineties but I never did any SWDEV on those as my interests were on big iron. N9 was the first small embedded device that had the same tools I was used to working with so naturally I was delighted on the possibilities it offered.

My current daily driver is the Jolla device (I got mine on the very Launching Gala last november, it's the device #240 )

I have pre-ordered the Neo900, and am eagerly anticipating it

I have degrees in EE & ME, and some university courses in Math before dropping out due to having not enough time to do family/work/university simultaneously My current occupation is in SW development for Telecommunication Systems at Nokia. (This is the real Nokia I am talking about, nothing to do with Microsoft) Previously I have done RF design, HW design and Test System design. I have worked in this industry for about 2 decades.

My passion is Free Software, Libre software even, and I am known to be fairly vocal FS advocate on my workplace. I use exclusively Linux/Unix variants in my work and on my own time, and am known for pestering people to drop proprietary/legacy OS'es and switch to Linux.

My SW skills include c, python, test automation and tool creation. I like kernel work and prefer to use console over any GUI's. Usually my first take at anything is to write a bash script


I mostly care of harmattan and jolla ... but my time resources are limited so all other candidates have my support as well
