I'm a French system/software engineer, currently working as Linux Platform Developer for [http://www.network-box.com.hk/ a managed security services company] in Hong-Kong, where I build our custom distribution from EL and Fedora packages (in Fedora-speak, I do packaging, sysadmin-build and releng).
I'm a french junior system engineer.

I'm currently living in what others call "the most beautiful city in the world": Paris (they are so wrong -_-)

Mathieu Bridon

I'm a French system/software engineer, currently working as Linux Platform Developer for a managed security services company in Hong-Kong, where I build our custom distribution from EL and Fedora packages (in Fedora-speak, I do packaging, sysadmin-build and releng).

I maintain some packages 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 2010, when Joerg Simon appointed me, to March 2012.

I have also been the assistant secretary of the Borsalinux-Fr NPO, from 2009 to 2011, back when it was still called Fedora-Fr.

These days, I'm mostly hacking on Bodhi 2 and supporting the Cangjie Chinese input method in IBus.
