Open Source Lover, Freelancer as Developper and Designer

About Me

I'm Abdelhak BOUGOUFFA, from Algeria, 25 years old, Master student (Distributed Computing Systems) at the University of Boumerdes (UMBB), I'm a former president of the University Computer Club (CIUB), I'm also a self-made programmer/developer.

In 2007 (I was 15 years old) I started learning programming, during one year; I worked hard to learn the basics of programming using the Visual Basic language. Then I moved to the development under the .NET Framework (using VB.NET then C#) and after that; I made some small applications.

At the end of 2009, when I was learning Python, I discovered the awesome world of free and open source softwares, since; I'm a GNU/Linux user and after 3 years I've become a GNU/Linux System Administrator (under Debian, ArchLinux and some CentOS).

In the 2012/2013 season, I joined the university computer club CIUB. At the Club, I taught Programming (Using C and Python), GNU/Linux, Free and Open Source culture... In the next two seasons, I was elected as President of the club.

Now, I'm a second year Master student at the University of Boumerdes, in the field of "Distributed Computing Systems", I contribute in some free and open source projects in my free time.
