My name is Simone Gaiarin, and I am a post-doc in optical communications engineering. I am a Linux enthusiast and a free-time programmer. I started using Linux in 2006 and quickly began to enjoy it. In time, I began to hack around with the system, writing scripts and finally I begin to program non-hello-world software. Now I contribute to the KDE project through bug reports and patches. I have also many computer unrelated interests, such as reading, hiking, traveling, experimenting, and in general I am always looking to learn new things and try new experiences.
I have created this site mainly to provide a showcase of my projects, and receive feedback and new ideas about them in the hope to improve them.
Moreover, this site is a space where I can pour all my thoughts about Linux and related things. In particular, I would like to share the solutions to the problems I face when I program. Sometimes I have spent days to solve really weird problems or to understand tricky internal mechanisms of KDE. Writing about them would be a good opportunity to help other newbie programmers like me to save time and to not get too frustrated while programming.
