As I've had a few new followers, by way of #introduction:
- I'm a free and open source software developer
- I contribute to #gnome, typically in the core platform libraries
- I mostly toot about my History of the GNOME project podcast (every week, on Thursday) and about my #gundam plastic models
- I try to keep my software development ranting to the bird site, but it may end up spilling over here
I’m currently looking for work. If anyone has any programming contracts available, please let me know.
At this point in time, if anyone can help me by supporting me on Patreon I’d greatly appreciate it while I persue a stable income.

We often talk of programmers and designers, but what about the documenters and translators quietly working in the background?
There is no "gnome devs" - it's a bizarre group of talented people doing far more than just "dev" and often with conflicting visions yet all trying to make GNOME the best it can be

User research played a big part in GNOME 40 designs. It has helped guide specific choices that have improved the overall design and will make it a better experience for users.
