How long have you been using Debian?

I've been using Debian since 2004 on my personal computer and web servers I administer.

Are you a Debian Developer?

I'm currently in the NM queue to become one :)

What areas of Debian are you involved in?

I contribute to AppArmor in Debian and have completed an internship with the Outreachy program in 2014. Read my blog about this internship. Furthermore, I am involved with packaging privacy related software through the pkg-privacy-tools packaging team (pkg-otr-team & pkg-anonymity-tools team). In the past, I also helped working on Debian related webpages, like the security tracker.

What got you interested in working with Debian?

I like that Debian is a non commercial and fairly secure distribution, tweakable to perfectly suit my needs, made by excellent individuals :)

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

You do not need to be afraid of not being good enough! People at Debian are keen to help getting you started if you can tell them what you are interested in and what you already know. Many things are well documented, but you still need to find them. The Debian wiki is a great place to start.

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

In the past I've been teaching women how to take apart computers and put them back together, which is a method I learned from the Genderchangers, but I am not involved with any women in technology group.

A bit more about you...

I work as web developer since over 10 years and got involved with Debian mainly through contributing to Tails, a Debian based live distribution aiming at protecting your privacy and anonymity.
