I graduated in 2016 with a B.S. in Computer Engineering. I  have been using Windows for many years, but have slowly been moving towards open-source software for my computing needs. I use open-source software almost constantly now, but I do still have a machine with Windows right now because I just can't go without Microsoft Office just yet. If I didn't need Office, I'd be set.

I love microcontrollers and FPGAs. I really like audio-related applications. I'm currently looking for work so I don't have a job title, but my ideal job title would be an Audio Firmware Engineer.

I make music with LMMS, music visualizations with Blender, and album artwork with Blender and GIMP.

"Flatpack version works okay. A little slowish in my VM, but could be an artifact of the VM. Can't open PDFs from an SMB share. get "Error while getting peer-to-peer dbus connection: Could not connect: Connection refused""

"Good tool, but almost too simple. I really wanted to change the microphone for video / webcam recording but couldn't. Ended up recording audio seperatly with Audacity and merging video and audio together with Kdenlive"

"Must-have piece of software if you ever want to alter an image. A little scary interface at first, but there are some good tutorials out there to get you started."

"Love it so much. I use it all day every day. I had to force software graphics rendering to prevent new pages/tabs opening as blank, white screens. Not a big deal though. Very happy!!"

"Didn't crash like Openshot was doing constantly. Maybe a little complicated at first, but not too overwhelming. Did its job, so I'm happy with it! :-)"
