Some information on Alan’s Bio

Alan has been a Community Manager at Canonical primarily working on Ubuntu for devices but is pretty much anywhere and everywhere that Ubuntu is.

He first encountered Linux in the mid-1990s, and ran Red Hat then Debian on the desktop and server until Ubuntu Warty came out. Alan has been using Ubuntu since 4.10 – the Warty Warthog and never looked back.

Previously Alan spent 13 years working as a system admin on some evil German proprietary software, but did what he could for Ubuntu and Linux in his spare time.

Alan became an Ubuntu member in 2006 and has in the past been the contact person for the UK LoCo team, a member of the LoCo Council and a member of the EMEA Membership board and the Community Council. He quite dislikes forums. Alan likes cats.

Setup and ran the Screencast Team which aimed to create a set of tutorial videos for new Ubuntu users. As part of that he managed the Ubuntu Screencasts Site. Since then Alan has now handed this over to another Ubuntu member.

Often runs development releases of Ubuntu early in the cycle to provide testing, bug reporting and triage help.

Helping to organise OGGCamp – a barcamp style unconference.

What I’ve been playing: ‘ This War of Mine’

  • 28k Overwhelmingly Positivie Review on Steam
  • Play as a group of civilians trying to just survive a war ridden besieged city
  • Try to get food, shelter, supplies, and keep your group from getting sick. Do all of this while trying to maintain some morality.
  • Truly experience the horrors of war.
  • On sale through Nov 28th for 3.99 vs. 19.99. Though I feel this game is actually worth $19.99
