My name is Avinash Meetoo and I live in Mauritius. When I was a kid, I was a computer geek and, when I grew up, I found it natural to study Computer Science (or, more precisely, Informatics.) After eight years of teaching at university level and despising what research has become, I decided to quit academic life and create my own company, Knowledge Seven, a Linux, Mobile and Web Agency in Mauritius. Today I am an Adviser to the Minister of Technology, Communication and Innovation and my job is to contribute towards a Smart and Innovative Mauritius.
I am a fan of Linux and Open Source Software and I founded the Linux User Group of Mauritius in 2000. My laptop runs Fedora Linux and it rocks. I also like Apple computers and I have an iMac for photography and music. I love my OnePlus 3T smartphone and my Google Nexus 7 tablet, two beautiful Android devices.
I like to browse, blog, tweet and program. I also listen to music a lot and I compose too (I’ve released three albums…) I also like photography.
