Hello everyone. I've been an #Ubuntu user and #freesoftware enthusiast for nearly ten years. I don't work in tech so unfortunately I have no real life friends who share my interest in #foss.
@AppleStrudelMan Welcome !
@AppleStrudelMan welcome to Fosstodon. I'm sure you will find plenty of people here to chat about Foss with. 😊
Thanks! It seems like a great community here.
@AppleStrudelMan I work in tech, but most of my friends are deaf to FOSS.
@AppleStrudelMan I've been trying to incorporate Python with pandas and xlwings in my work to get away from so much Excel at my work as well! I'm in the middle of writing up a blog post with my experiences so far to help out others who may be interested in doing the same.
@pinguino Looking forward to reading your blog post.
we need non-tech jobs to also use foss :)
@LPS I always get weird looks when I try to explain why I use Linux.
@AppleStrudelMan Me too:( Not sure if you follow @firstname.lastname@example.org but he/she (not sure) posts some really great alternatives to corporate software. Point the nay sayers there:)
@mpjgregoire I work with financial data. I mostly use Python for automating mundane daily reporting. I'm hoping I can find a job where I can do some more interesting data analysis one day.
I currently write my code in Spyder. I've been meaning to try Jupyter. It looks like it would be good for ad-hoc analysis and testing new ideas.
Fosstodon is an English speaking Mastodon instance that is open to anyone who is interested in technology; particularly free & open source software.
