Mathieu Bridon

I'm a French junior system/software engineer, currently working as Linux Platform Developer for a managed security services company in Hong-Kong.

I also am a Novell CLP and a RHCE.

Realisations in the FOSS community

Fedora

I've been using Fedora since Fedora Core 5 (Bordeaux, what a wonderful name :-). Since then, I've been an active member in the French community.

Mohamed Elmorabity and I co-founded the Fedora | Paris project. What we do is gather the Fedoristas who live in Paris and have diner more or less every 2 weeks, and more if the night goes on. Of course, we all already know each other on IRC or on the forums, so those meetings are more a way to know the non-geek-side of each other, and build friendship inside our community. The subjects of conversation can be geared towards Fedora but it is not mandatory. We are not a LUG, Fedora is merely what brought us together. Put in other words, Fedora | Paris aims at seeing what lays beyond the geeky mask. Fedora | Paris is also responsible of providing the restaurants and after parties for the Fedora Community regarding events organized in Paris. As a result, we are proud to count Max Spevack and Yaakov Nemoy as international guests (as well as the French community members who don't live in Paris but gave us a visit).

I maintain some packages both in Fedora and EPEL.

Under pressure (and guidance) from Thomas Canniot, I became a Fedora Ambassador in June 2008.

I have been an Ambassador mentor from March 2012 when Joerg Simon appointed me as one, to March 2012.

I have been the assistant secretary of the Fedora-Fr NPO from 2009 to 2011.

Development

Apart from minor contributions to several projects, I am a core contributor to the following projects.

Shomyu

I initiated Shomyu. The goal is to provide a web application for members of a community to locate themselves and add a short description about them.

Shomyu was born after frustration from not being able / wanting to use the proprietary Frappr service that Fedora-Fr was using at this time. Let's hope Shomyu can replace it if it ever gets in a working enough shape.

Unfortunately, due to a lack of time, this project is on hold for now.

PyF

I also contribute to the PyF framework. PyF is a pure Python framework for building flow-based applications, that is applications that can handle lots of data without ever loading more than one item in memory at a time, thus being highly scalable.

PyF was mostly part of my previous work though, so even if I maintain good relationships with the community, I haven't done any contribution ever since I moved to Hong Kong.
