> my name is Andrea Grandi, from Italy. Most of you probably already
> know me, but I'll introduce myself for people who joined later.
> I'm a computer science student at Università degli Studi di Firenze
> and I've worked in the past as software developer for some companies.
> I also lead the Linux user group of my city (PtLUG), and for this
> reason my programming interests are directed to opensource
> development.
> Working for PtLUG I've also gained a lot of experience about how to
> relate to a community and how to organize events.
> Past and present in Maemo Community
> I joined the Maemo Community since the first Maemo device was out
> (Nokia 770) and I've been always so excited for being able to
> contribute to this project.
> In the past I've attended at both Maemo Summit doing a short talk.
> During last summer I collaborated with PyMaemo team during a stage at
> Igalia and at the moment I'm developing a couple of applications using
> Python and Qt.
> Areas where I could help in the council
> In the Maemo Council I could help mainly for two things. First of all
> I could help for the organization of the events. Finding a strategic
> place to organize an event and selecting interesting contents to
> attract more people is not an easy task. I think that there are still
> some areas where we can work better to give to the Community a better
> Summit.
> Being a developer too I think I could help improving tools that Maemo
> developers use. For example a lot of work could be done to improve the
> Maemo Garage (did you notice that main Maemo project have their code
> in Gitorius, mailing list on Maemo Garage, website on another hosting
> service ecc...... ?!).
> What I would like to do in the Council
> - Maemo(MeeGo) Summit organization: as I already said, there are some
> areas that we could improve and I'm going to work in this direction.
> - Promoting developers contests: a nice way to attract developers is
> challenging them. We could organize a contest and I'm sure that a lot
> of interesting applications could be created by community.
> - Improving the "getting started" part of all areas: I've noticed that
> for a new developers or users has never been easy to find where to
> start from. I think that a lot could be done to improve this.
> Of course I've also other ideas for the Community, but first of all
> let's see how this Maemo+Moblin fusion will evolve. We are no more
> just "Maemo" now, we are a larger community so I think it's better to
> start as soon as possible working together to create the best
> community ever :)
