Goals in the Fedora Project

  • To have a linux distribution fully translated to Spanish. A stable and an easy to install one.
  • Use linux and open source software in my daily work.
  • Port the software I developed to linux.
  • Use linux everywhere I work.

Historical qualifications

  • Software development using mainly C++ for Win32 wxMSW-OWL-native api, and for linux with wxGTK.
  • WAN and LAN administrator using linux and cisco.
  • Red Hat Linux user since Red Hat Linux version 3.1.
  • C++ programmer since 1991.
  • Since august 2006, Spanish translator for the Fedora Project.
  • Since 2007, Fedora Spanish Translation Team coordinator.

Current occupations

  • I currently work for some small supermarkets and stores, in software development, since 1998. I develop systems for billing, accounting, and everything a small business needs. I also provide cunsulting services.
  • Professor and responsible for the following cathedras:
    • Compiladores e Intérpretes - Ingeniería en Computación - Universidad Católica de Santiago del Estero - since 2008
    • Redes de Area Local - Tecnicatura en Redes - Universidad Católica de Santiago del Estero - since 2008

    • Geometría II - I.F.D. N° 9 - Santiago del Estero - since 2015
  • As I work as a network administrator using linux from a long time ago, and I've been paid for that job, I give back to the open source community by translating the linux distribution I work with.

Successes and Implementations

I may happily say that I succeeded in three of the goals mentioned above. I'm on my way on using linux everywhere.

By april 2010, a customer bought my software for point of sale, and gave me a special request: he wanted it to be installed under Linux. I installed Fedora, of course. That date is important to me, because I didn't have to talk about how good Fedora Linux operating system is and how good my software performs on it.

The problems I encountered in Fedora Linux implementation in the enterprise and the solution I given are documented in this page.
