Greetings, earthlings! I'm Robyn Bergeron. I do [[marketing]] "stuff" for Fedora.  Market research is my thing, and strategic marketing / general strategy development is something i consider fun and exciting.

I am, as I say, a domestic household engineer, which means I have 2 kids, a man, and usually something planned for burning for dinner.  In my former lives I have been a business analyst, a market research analyst, and I'm also a recovering [http://xkcd.com/149/ sysadmin].  I have no official employer, unless you ask my kids, who quite possibly think that I work for them. :)  I also help edit papers for the Ottawa / Montreal [http://http://www.linuxsymposium.org/2009/ Linux Symposium] every year; I encourage people to submit papers for and attend this great event, and if you know anything about LaTeX, I would love to have more help.  Awesomely, all the work / editing / building of the proceedings for this event is done on fedorapeople.org.

Greetings, earthlings! I'm Robyn Bergeron.  
  
Speaking of Fedora... what, you may ask, do I do within the Fedora Project?  As I said, I'm a contributor on the marketing team - you have probably (hopefully!) seen my emails making calls to the community for participation in things like the [[Release_slogan | F13 release slogan]], [[Fedora_13_Talking_Points | F13 talking points]], and probably many other things.  I've also been working on driving [[Marketing_research | market research]] forward; if you took the [[Marketing_research#FUDCon_Toronto_2009_Survey | Post-FUDCon survey]], or have seen me banging the rallying drum for packaging work on [[Things_to_do_to_finish_Limesurvey| Limesurvey]] on my blog... those are just a few of the things I'm doing, research-wise.  As far as other team infrastructure goes - I also run the weekly [[Marketing_meetings | marketing meeting]] on IRC sometimes, am one of the admins for the [https://fedorahosted.org/marketing-team/ Marketing Trac] instance, and one of the sponsors in FAS for new members to the Marketing group.  Other things I've done and continue to do include [[Feature_profiles | feature profile]] [[Desktop_Enhancements_in_Fedora_12 |interviews]], make sure that the marketing team is keeping on track to produce our deliverables according to [http://poelstra.fedorapeople.org/schedules/f-13/f-13-marketing-tasks.html schedule], wikify various marketing things, and in general, just try to restrain myself from volunteering for more than I can actually do. :)  I was also delighted to attend the recent [[Marketing_FAD_2010 | Marketing FAD]] and help drive some of the schedule and deliverables at that event.

== About me ==

I work for [http://www.redhat.com Red Hat] as the [[FPL | Fedora Project Leader.]] I've been involved in Fedora since 2009 and have contributed in a variety of ways:
 +
* [[Marketing]] team leader
 +
* [[Cloud SIG]] wrangler
 +
* [[Ambassadors | Ambassador]], travelling to and speaking at many events where Fedora has a presence
 +
* Organized the 2011 North American [[FUDCon]] in [[FUDCon:Tempe_2011 | Tempe, Arizona.]]
  
In my copious spare time (ha ha ha) I do enjoy a little bit of television (house, mostly; [http://www.syfy.com/battlestar/ bsg] was my former poison.  I occasionally pump out the quilts, I have an endless stack of books to read (I like humor, biographies, economic theory), and I make an effort at least once a month to beat up my [http://i.zdnet.com/blogs/office-space-printer.jpg printer.]

For the current moment, I am also serving as the Fedora Program Manager, which means generally tending to the Fedora [[Schedule]] and doing [[Features | feature]] wrangling for each release.  I began my career at Red Hat in this position in November 2010, and in addition to being PM for Fedora, I also do work for the clustering team, and previously was active in helping to kick-start the [http://ovirt.org oVirt project.]]
