I am currently studying in semester 8 of BSD program @ Seneca College. I was always hearing about Open Source community but have never done any Open Source projects. I hope this course make me more comfortable with Open Source and the whole concept behind it.
Besides studying, there are lots of other things I do and would like to do in near future. I play flute and enjoy it a lot, a concert is coming up in June which I have a little stress about it but I know it would be so much fun.
I would like to spend my spare time with reading books; I recommend all baby boomers to read “Grown Up Digital” by Don Tapscott.
Playing billiard is another fun thing to do when I am done with my assignments.
My favourite movie is “Tears of the Sun”.
