Reintroduce myself
« on: July 30, 2015, 09:49:39 am »
Changed my nick from webmouse to SmartDuck.
Back to Vector Linux as my main distro.  7.1 works great for me. Most distros are to bloated or not stable.
Wrote manuals/translations and did some other things for Vector Linux in the past, 4.0, 4.3, 5.9 versions.

WhoamI: Marcel, 43 years young :), married this year, I have 3 kids and my lovely wife has 2.
We live in Waalwijk, a small city in the south of the netherlands with 2 cats, turtles, fish and chickens.
I work as a system developer/scrum master for a international parcel company.

Thanks for the warm welcome.
I have some extra time so if I help is needed, testing, documenting stuff, or something else contact me.

A little background:
At work I use c#, jQuery, Razor and Entity framework (Mickysoft :) ). At home I use only a little c# with monodevelop for small tools.
My latest project is the automation of my little green house with a Raspberry Pi A+ and Arduino Nano, a web based solution written in PHP and C.
I have written Android apps, one now in Google Play.
And now learning the Ruby language and the Shoes framework, something different and something to get used to, if you're used to the c#/java/php syntax, but a very powerfull language.

Hey SmartDuck, welcome back!
Its always nice to see developers interested in using Vector!
Would you be interested in checking out our mono packages? We have been building mono for a while, but nobody in the team actually uses it. It would be nice to put that toolchain in shape.

Ruby is very nice, inspired in Smalltalk, Perl and friends, its one of the most expressive language available.
Good luck with your green house automation project, thats very cool, post some pics when you get the time :)
