[edit] Activities within Fedora

I'm mainly involved with the CMS, Zikula, soon to run http://docs.fedoraproject.org. As a member of the Zikula Software Foundation, and Zikula Steering Committee, much of my time is taken up over there, however I spend as much time on Fedora as I can. I hope to help out in more varied areas such as infrastructure in the future.

My skills are mainly those of a web developer. I'm pretty knowledgeable in PHP, MySQL, Apache administration and other stuff you'd associate with the web. I'm currently a student at Cambridge University in the UK, and I should graduate in June 2009.

[edit] FUDCon Toronto 2009

The following are possibilities - I'm looking for comments on which of the below might be valuable.

  • Presentation - Zikula in General
  • What Fedora is doing with Zikula, and the current state of play.
  • What's next for the Fedora Zikula sites
  • Converting FI to pagemaster (there are several parts to this, I can do part 1 as a demo and the other parts can be done by others having seen the demo)
  • Site upgrade works (by this time the Zikula project will have released version 1.2.0)
  • I can train a number of volunteers in how to administrate a Zikula website
  • Design stuff: where to put templates/images
  • Long term work: planning how we'll handle translations, the documentation project's build module

To run these sessions we'll need a publictest server set up with a Zikula instance (or I can host a webserver on my laptop if we have network access).
