For the last 25 years Steven Goodwin (London, England) has been professionally involved in both the community and development environment for Linux, Free Software, and Open Source. His first articles in Linux Magazine in 2001 began a long partnership where he brought the C programming language to the newsstand, demonstrated home automation, and uncovered command line power tools.

As a FOSDEM stalwart he has attended them all, written the 'FOSDEM diary', and given nearly 20 different talks with two outings on the Janson stage, including the 20th anniversary closing keynote.

His development portfolio includes games, cloud infrastructure, embedded devices, digital signage, and most areas in between.

As a speaker and commentator he has spoken at many major national, and international, conferences around the world on topics as diverse as WebRTC, HTML5, game development, and quantum superpositions. His position as an industry thought leader includes 60+ articles, 5 books, and work as a start-up consultant, futurist, and mentor.

He is also the author of the retro computing book "20 GOTO 10" which digs deep into old machines and the numbers that bind them together. .

His interests outside of computers, also involve computers!
