I'm universally known as Frankie, a long-time Debian Developer and FLOSS activist. I found my way into the free/open-source world in the mid-90s, thanks to my job as a researcher and the experiences after my degree in Computer Science. Currently, I'm mainly interested in geospatial technologies and methodologies in Earth observation. Still, like many early geeks, I have extensive experience in system administration and general computing, HPC, and other fields of ICT. My expertise includes C/C++, Tcl, Perl, Python, R, and many *nix tools and tiny languages.

Since the beginning of this millennium, as a Debian Developer, I'm involved in the maintainership of multiple software I'm interested in.
