Luis de Bethencourt
Luis de Bethencourt is a freedom-lover technocrat, and has always enjoyed programming and playing around with video, so since he discovered GStreamer years ago he's been hooked. Originally from the Canary Islands, computers felt like a door to the world, and saw in Linux the best way to open it, see how it all works, and become a part of it. He currently works for Collabora and enjoys contributing to projects like Gstreamer Editing Services, Rygel, PiTiVi, freemix or snappy.
