Felipe Barros - Recife

While still at school, GNU/Linux liberated Felipe from the shackles of digital oblivion and corporate abuse.

An arts person, likes to spend free time writing or drawing and can often be caught talking about interfaces as handcrafted, artisanal work.

Ariel Alexi - Rosh HaAyin

Ariel is finishing up her last year as a Computer Science student, where she built numerous projects with C++, Java, Javascript, and Go. We introduced her to Clojure, which she took to like fish takes to water. Her thirst for knowledge has not stopped growing.

In her free time she likes to develop video games.
