Monday 22 October 2012 OpenStack, Ceilometer, Heat, Synaps Comments

A few days ago, Samsung released the source code of Synaps, an implementation of the Amazon Web Service CloudWatch API for OpenStack.

Logitech K750 keyboard and Unifying Receiver Linux support

Monday 09 July 2012 Linux, USB, Logitech Comments

This obviously allowed me to enhance my technical skills, but it also taught me about Free Software and Open Source development processes, and how to work with and close to the community.

Working for almost 6 years at Easter-eggs taught me how to work in an autonomous manner, how to lead and manage a project. And how to run a company, thanks to the cooperative status of this great one.

These are the reasons why I decided to leave my latest job and run my own company to work as a freelance consultant & developer specialized in Free Software, starting today.
