Free Software Contributions

Although that won't show you everything, you can find most of my contributions through my public profiles on a few platforms:

However, there are a few contributions I would like to single out.

I developed an implementation of the Cangjie Chinese input method. This forced me to learn a lot about written Chinese, how characters are constructed, and how to input them with a keyboard. And all that without being able to read or write Chinese.

I have been a Fedora contributor since 2008, first as a package maintainer and later contributing code to various projects that form the Fedora build and release infrastructure, like Bodhi, Koji, rpkg/fedpkg, etc.

I have been a GNOME contributor since 2014, mostly around things like BuildStream and Flatpak. Specifically, I participate in maintaining the Flatpak Freedesktop Sdk.
