MaidSafe New Team Member: Lionel Faber
Hey guys! It’s really thrilling to be here and thank you for the warm welcome.
I’m a soon-to-be CS graduate from Anna University, Chennai, India. During my journey in Engineering, I’ve always had a thirst for new tech and how it can make everyday life better. Early on in this adventure, I came across the Open Source community and I was instantly inspired. They made a big deal of privacy and freedom and I realised how important both had to be in today’s data-populated internet world.
Among the various types of technology that I explored along the way, I had discovered that I loved building apps for Android. So many ideas could be implemented — and Android as a platform was so much fun to work with. By this stage, I’d ended up working as a web dev — but there was something missing:
Every night I lie in bed, the brightest colours fill my head, a million dreams are keeping me awake. — Hugh Jackman
This feeling was something I could relate to at that time. Being a part of something new has always given me extra drive but this was missing while I was working for a ‘corporate’ firm. Then, out of the blue, I came across MaidSafe. Browsing through videos about the SAFE Network, one phrase caught my attention.
Privacy, Security and Freedom. For everyone.
So many great ideas and such impressive work. All this and OPEN SOURCE!
That was it. I joined MaidSafe! :D
I’m so excited to be here as an Android developer and being a part of this community has been a great experience so far. I look forward to working with you all. Cheers!
