Smile Greetings from Sunny Scotland


Hi,

I'm not the best at intros, but here's the basics

When it comes to linux, I'm pretty much a complete (hooray!). I was sick of re-installing windows, and having to hunt around for serials to avoid paying silly money when all i needed was to re-install and not buy a new OS, so after a Linux module during 2nd year uni I got up the courage to install openSuSE 10.1 (purely because I had the disc, by the sound of it i should have tried Ubuntu)

I can stumble through simple scripting in BASH (but c shell sounds easier for someone with a c++ programming background?) and have learned a couple of things from installation problems, although I think it will be a little while before I can answer many questions

So, I am currently on a computing course at Dundee Uni and am hoping to move on and be a programmer of some sort (preferrably using c++ ) Coding is where my main interest lies, so I'm not so good with the technical stuff - but as of yet I'd have no idea where to start to actually develop anything for an OS either

Anyhoo, I hope to learn a bit here - and eventually contribute something to the open source community in general (and scoop up some women in computing bursaries on the way )

See you all around,

kenzie

P.S I like smilies!

c shell uses c syntax not c++ syntax, and c and C++ are a lot different
