Buddhika Chandradeepa Kurera

I started with Fedora core in 2004 and start contributing the Fedora Project when I got the internet connection in around 2008. I wanted to contribute Fedora because I like the way the community is organized. As per the projects' vision it is truly creating free software and free community to work freely. Specially I love the way the project gets community contribution being 100% community driven project.

Fedora is one of the projects I contribute. Most of the time Non-Technical support is my focus.

I had a speech about Fedora OS in my school when I was in grade 11 (2003), that was the first time I talked public about fedora since then I am talking about Fedora and the project.

Therefore If you want a speaker for any FOSS related event, donot hesitate to check my availability.
