About Me

Hi, I'm a University Professor (I have a Master Degree in Computer Science) at Belo Horizonte - MG - Brazil. My disciplines are: Operating Systems, Algorithms, Mobile Computing and Distributed Systems.

I use GNU/Linux since 1998 and now my distribution is Ubuntu Edgy Eft. I'm actually a member of Free Software Foundation.

I coordinate a project to create telecenters in a lower class neighborhood. The first telecenter is on a neighborhood called Bairro das Indústrias in Belo Horizonte (capital of Minas Gerais state on Brazil) and uses Edubuntu.

I'm organizing a Ubuntu Day on my University joint with LoCo Team. This Ubuntu Day will be: Some lectures from LoCo team, a install fest and CD/DVD distribution.

More info in Portuguese/English on and my publications curriculum (pt-BR) and curriculum (en).

Why am I an Ubuntero?

I've already contributed with Ubuntu:

What do I want to do in Ubuntu?

  • Become a Ubuntu Member (Done)
  • Become a MOTU Developer
  • Become a Core Developer
  • Work in Ubuntu Kernel Team with my free time as a professor

  • Help in System Administration in Ubuntu Server Team

"I can testify that Pereira has helped a lot in conferences and events. He stood with us on the stands, helped new users, debugged stuff on the stand, distributed media and lots more. He has done also a good job taking Ubuntu to the academic sphere of his job, an attitude that helps disseminating Ubuntu among a important critical mass that is being formed in the Brazilian university. Thus, I would recommend him being approved for membership for his strong advocating and helping." -- MarioMeyer
