My name is Randy and I am a software developer and open source tech enthusiast. I am based in Canada and have a passion for software development that is open, collaborative and promotes the free flow of ideas. My education consists of three years of computer programming and analysis at Sault College, as well as a Bachelor's Degree in Politics (minor economics) from the University of Ottawa. I enjoy designing and building websites as well as experimenting and learning about open source software. Python is my favourite coding language and I greatly enjoy writing apps that leverage that language. In 2011 I decided to switch to Linux as my main OS and I've been happy with the experience so far. I've been using Ubuntu and I'm pleased with the quality of their product (there are many great Linux distributions!).
