About me

For now I'm Senior Data Scientist/Machine Learning engineer.

I got my first computer in 2002, and got Internet connection in 2004. Of course it was Windows XP at that moment.

I learnt Pascal in school, Python and C++ in the university.

I started to use Mandriva Linux in 2005 and started to use it regularly in 2006.

Switched to Gentoo in 2007 but had some pause with it in 2017 when I was used to use Windows 10.

For now I use Gentoo on my laptop and Debian on a home server.

Also tried and used for some time FreeBSD, MacOS X, Oracle Linux and Ubuntu.
