How long have you been using Debian?

For about 1 ½ years now. Though I have been using Debian based distributions since I was 15 (and I’m 21 now)

Are you a Debian Developer?

I am a software developer but not specifically a Debian dev.

What areas of Debian are you involved in?

Not really anything apart from getting people to ditch Windows and install Linux (aka Debian)

What got you interested in working with Debian?

I do/ want to contribute to the Debian community because I think it is important to have free and open-source software to use, Debian is a great operating system and I like the idea of groups like the Debian Women.

Do you have any tips for women interested in getting more involved with Debian?

Not really as I don’t really know what I’m doing yet either. I think being involved in the forums and IRC channels is a good start, get involved with other people working on Debian, learn about technology that fascinates you.

Are you involved with any other women in technology group? Which one(s)?

Unfortunately None.

A bit more about you...

I’m 21 years old, I study computer science at the Humboldt University in Berlin. I develop software in my free time and I really love cats :3
