All About Stefano

Stefano Rivera (tumbleweed) is a thoroughbred Debian-developing Linux geek.

He was born and raised in Cape Town, South Africa as an almost-only-child (don’t ask, complicated family). He went to Michael Oak Waldorf School, and matriculated with distinction at Constantia Waldorf in 2003.

After a year out, teaching B&W photography to girls in America, curbing virus outbreaks, and writing code for GetReel Digital Services in London, he returned to Cape Town to study at UCT. After 4 years of study he has attained a BSc in IT (Computer Engineering) in 2007, a 1st class BSc Hons in 2008, and is currently hacking away at an MSc.

In his spare time, he surfs the internet, climbs mountains, writes Python code, works on debian and ubuntu, and tries to keep the penguins in line at the local LUG.
