I’m Altin Ukshini, a FLOSS (Free Libre and Open Source Software) and Open Knowledge activist since 2009.
I have been working hard last years on promoting, developing and translating Free and Open Source Software, alone and through FLOSSK. Basically, in general promoting FLOSS (Free Libre and Open Source Software) in my country Kosovo.
I am one of the organizers of Software Freedom Kosova
the biggest annual F/LOSS Conference in Balkans and other related
(FLOSS tech) activities that happened since 2009 including Richard
Stallman’s lecture in Prishtina.
As a very active community guy, I’ve passionately co-founded and led
tech projects and events in Kosovo and the US. I’ve been part of
Louisville’s LVL1 hackerspace in Kentucky, United States of America for a
year (while I was an exchange student), received the “Honorary Citizen
of Louisville” award by the city Mayor and during my stay I founded a
non-profit and the first conference about Open Source Software in
Kentucky called MOSSCon (Midwest Open Source Software Conference).
I’m the the President of the Board at FLOSSK and MOSSCon, Prishtina Hackerspace co-founder, board member at STIKK (Kosovo Association of Information and Communication Technology) and a Mozilla representative from Kosovo.
I used to work at IPKO Foundation
where I organized and lead some of the foundation’s projects, as well
as managed the tech part of them, but currently I work at IPKO Telecom in Prishtina as a Linux System administrator
I’m a GNU project supporter, and love contributing to Wikipedia and Open Street Map.
