My name is David (Zarniwoop), and I signed up a while back for
participating in the Mageia dev-team among with other teams, but since
then I haven't heard anything. I've now been in contact with Maertens
who asked me to email on the mailinglist and let you all know who I am
and what I hope to participate with, so here goes:

I'm 32 years old, working in telecommunications. In March I will start
working as a software developer for DigitalRoute (in Java).

Linux experience:
I've been using Linux since around 1997 (possibly -96). Slackware for
the first few years, and later several distributions but mostly Red
Hat, Mandriva, Slackware and Ubuntu. At work I use Ubuntu (10.04), and
at home I use Mandriva 2009.1 and 2010.1. At work and at the
University I've used UNIX a lot on servers.

Developer experience:
I have a B.Sc. in Computer Science focusing on software development
and programming. I've programmed assembly language on Amiga (68020),
and in the later year mostly C and Java with some experience in C#.
I've also worked a lot with Oracle at work.

My participation:
I haven't participated in distribution development before so I'm
pretty new at this, but I want to help out wherever I can. I think I
can be of most use with C-programming. I prefer low-level programming
as opposed to GUI, but am eager to learn so if I get some pointers
I'll try to help out wherever needed. Since I don't have any
experience from distro development I'm hoping someone more experienced
could point me in the right direction.
