Activities within Fedora

I have been using Linux and Free Software for about 15 years, having used Slackware, old Red Hat Linux, Debian, Conectiva Linux (worked there for 3 years) and even dropped Linux for OpenBSD for some time. In 2006 I started working for Red Hat, so using Fedora was a natural choice. Regardless of the fact I work for Red Hat, Fedora seems to me to be the best mixture of innovation, stability, user-friendliness and freedom, so I try to advocate Fedora wherever I go.

I'm a fairly active/vocal member of the free software user groups I participate, frequently giving out talks in the local [[1]] events. I'm also starting up a free software users group where I'm currently living, which is the west region of Santa Catarina, Brazil. Recently I've presented talks in local universities, so I'll see about becoming a Fedora Ambassador for this region.

I don't have a lot of time to devote to the project, so I'll try to focus on what I can do best, which is helping out users via IRC/email at times, and representing Fedora in local events with talks and perhaps some workshops.
