Hello Debian people

Hi everyone,

I am Praveen Illa from Hyderabad. Like Pirate Praveen I am also from Electrical background but my passion towards computers and Technology, FOSS brought me here.

After bored with windows thing, I looked for another alternative that could be explorable....then I found Ubuntu and started experimenting with it, then I got to know that the computers can be used with Telugu interface and it looks so amazing to me, landed me on Launchpad. Started working on Telugu localization. After that I need to find the upstream sources for the l10n stream and like that Gnome, Xfce, LXDE, Gimp.... At the sametime I can find the similar interest people who are working on it Like Swecha and e-telugu organisations, met nice people. Like other folks, my Gnu/linux journey started with ubuntu and ended with the universal operating system 'Debian'. It's been fourth year started using it, and I'm very comfortable using Debian.

Whatever I discover, the first thing I do is localize that thing irrespective of the usage statistics. As I always want to see the Telugu in the Top position in the statistics, other Indic languages encourages me to do so.
So far I've localized many apps and projects. But finding the equal word for the Technical term will always a big challenge for the people who do Localization. Yet to find a better solution, I also follow the other indic language communities for better approach in L10N.

In 2011, I got the chance to attend MiniDebConf event along with Pavithran which was organized at Pune. This event introduced me Indian FOSS community and met nice people like Pavithran, Praveen, Sirish, Prof. Abhijith...

Apart from the Localization, my other interests are python programming language, Django frame work, writing articles on Free and open source software in wikipedia, blog.

Looking forward to participate in MiniDebconf 2014.

Praveen Illa.
