Welcome all to the first of many “Who We Are” posts. These posts will introduce you to many of our members of the team. We will start with Svetlana Belkin, the founder and admin of the team:
I am Svetlana Belkin (A.K.A. belkinsa everywhere in Ubuntu community and
Mechafish on the Ubuntu Forums), and I am getting my BS in biology with
molecular sciences as my focus at University of Cincinnati. I used
Ubuntu since 2009, but the only “scientific” program that I used was
Ugene. But hopefully, I will get to use more in my field.
Today, Svetlana Belkin (belkinsa), done work on the team wiki pages, mainly the home page. The home page now has a cleaner look where the basics, such as the introduction about the team all the way to how to contact the team and how to join the team. Svetlana also removed some of the excess “tabs” on the menu bar and added a “Site Map” tab, where users can see what other pages are there.
There is still work to be done on a homepage, mainly with menu and a lot of work on those team wiki pages, as stated here and in the UOS session. Hopefully, the team’s wiki pages will be finished by the end of July 2014 in order for a clearer understanding for newcomers.
In the last UOS, the founder (belkinsa, Svetlana Belkin) of Ubuntu Scientists decided to create a blog where the team will post news, interviews of the members, and stories of members to help other scientists to get a feeling of who we are, how to help us, and how to use FOSS in the science fields. Another team also have done this in the past.
