Who are they?
Fedora Ambassadors are every day people, who go to places where other Linux users and potential users/interested parties gather, and tell them about Fedora the linux distribution, but also the Fedora Project as a whole. Please note: This does not have to be an event as such, telling your neighbours, friends, work colleagues is also a way to spread the word.
Where are they?
Fedora Ambassadors are located all over the world. Take a look at the following pages, to see where you can find them, and in which regions they are found.
