Hello, I’m Vimal.
For over 9 years, I supported research groups in biological sciences with their computational and programming needs.
During this time, I had installed and managed Linux servers, databases, web applications, and websites, developed software as part of a team, and published packages on PyPI, Anaconda, Galaxy Tool shed, OBS and Docker hub.
I’m a Linux user for 20+ years. Feel free to get in touch with me, if you need help getting started. I organized Linux meetups in Cork (2017-2018). I was a member of the UCC Indian Alumni Community. I wrote content and managed the community website for some time.
