Country where I live and work now: Vietnam
Organization: Hanoi Community Space
My full name is "Nguyễn Hà Dương", also known as "Duong H. Nguyen" or "Yang" in English, グエンヤン in Japanese, and simply cmpitg. Starting using GNU/Linux and officially joined the Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) world in 2006, I came to love the sharing culture and freedom in software. In 2008, I decided to join and contribute to some FOSS projects and spent most of my time developing FOSS and promoting the spirit of sharing and collaborating in my country since then.
I am currently a member of many local and international FOSS communities, including HanoiLUG, Fedora Vietnam, Ubuntu-VN, Gentoo, and Mozilla. I'm also one of the organizers of some FOSS events in Vietnam, including Software Freedom Day @ Hanoi, FOSS @ ICTU, Open Day, Fedora and Ubuntu release parties, ... In the beginning of 2012, my FOSS fellows and I founded Hanoi Community Space - an active group which helps promote FOSS culture and contribute to FOSS communities all over the world, with me being the current dictator.
I started using Fedora in 2008 but I did not come to like it 'til version 12 released in 2009. As of April, I have done some packaging in my own interest and decided to contribute to the Fedora project technically and socially. I want to adapt and adopt Fedora to Vietnamese people and make Fedora a better operating system for users worldwide.
