GHOP students 2007-2008/Andreas Lance Freund
A bit about myself:
I race bicycles and spend a lot of my free time training. Other than cycling, the most important thing in my life is learning. Some of my other interests include messing around in Linux, trying to become fluent in at least one programming language, and making things, but, like with programming and electronics, I am not very good at it yet. I also play piano. My favorite class in school this year is Chemistry AP, because it is probably the first class I've ever taken that really challenges me. Math is usually my favorite class, but I don't like my teacher this year.
Why I joined the contest and why I chose Joomla!
I wanted the tshirt, so that I can pretend that I am good at something. The money isn't too bad either. But really, I wanted to join GHOP, because I find it very rewarding to be able to give back to the open source community. I use open source software every day and it means a lot to me to be able to contribute. I chose Joomla!, because I wanted to learn more about it.
Some thoughts on my experience
It was great. I got a lot of good feedback and help. Everyone who helped was serious about getting me to do the best job possible.
Ideas on improvement
I don't really have any. My experience was perfect.
