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.
