Membership Board Member Interviews: Chris Wayne

The Ubuntu Membership Board is responsible for approving new Ubuntu members. I interviewed our board members in order for the Community to get to know them better and get over the fear of applying to Membership.

The first interview is with Chirs Wayne:

I work for Canonical, in the Phone Delivery Team.

What was your first computing experience?

My father got me a desktop as soon as I learned how to read

How long have you been involved with Ubuntu?

Since around 2009, when I joined Canonical

Since you are all fairly new to the Board, why did you join?

As cliche as it sounds, I just wanted to be more involved in the community

What are some of the projects you’ve worked on in Ubuntu over the years?

Preinstalled Ubuntu on Dell machines, Ubuntu for Android, Ubuntu phone (tech lead for the scopes on the phone)

What is your focus in Ubuntu today?

Scopes!

Do you contribute to other free/open source projects? Which ones?

Contributed several apps/scopes to Ubuntu, contributed to Galileo (syncing Fitbits on linux), libfitbit, Xpresser (GUI automation tool)

If you were to give a newcomer some advice about getting involved with Ubuntu, what would it be?

Don’t be afraid to ask questions, everybody has to start somewhere :)
