About #

Panagiotis Vasilopoulos (in short, Panos) is a teenage developer from Athens, Greece. He believes in digital rights, LGBTQIA+ rights, the right to privacy and equality, as well as the free software movement, having contributed to various projects ranging from the Haiku operating system all the way down to the creation of a small bot for people to learn Python with, as well as other dozens of other projects. He contributes code, technical documentation and translations. He has also been distinguished in the Google Code-In 2019 competition, having received a "Runner Up" title, which positioned him among the top 3% of all contestants. Most recently, he was awarded a scholarship by the DAAD in order to study in Germany.

Panos firmly believes that computers should and can make the average person's life better. Because of that, he maintains a computer network running on Linux called LIVIDnet at home, which hosts a variety of privacy-friendly services for the benefit of the public. Currently, he is working on a bot that will deliver copies of censorship circumvention software provided by The Tor Project. He is also a leader of a virtual computer club called Hackropolis, which is primarily targeted towards young Greek-speaking people with an affinity towards computer science. It operates under the auspices of the 501(c)(3) non-profit organization Hack Club.

On top of it all, he is also keen on photography and visual art, having participated in multiple multicultural projects that resulted in the production of videos with sociopolitical content with organizations by the likes of Goethe-Institut. Occasionally, he also produces his own music and publishes it online.

He speaks English, Greek, as well as German, and his pronouns are "he/him" or "they/them".
