Fedora was one of the first GNU/Linux distros that I worked on. I love working on it for several reasons. First, I love "Freedom" and Fedora is a "Free" OS. The second reason is that Fedora has many nice features. Finally, I love the Fedora Project's core values.
I am currently an active member of many FOSS communities, including:
Activites within Fedora
I have been organizing and participating in Fedora events, including:
- Distributing Fedora media (CDs,DVDs) for free to students studying at my university and others
- Organizing Fedora release parties with Truong Anh Tuan and others from Fedora 14 to Fedora 19 in Hanoi, Danang and other cities
- Helping students and everbody join the Fedora Project and its sub-projects
- Explaining frequently four core values of the Fedora Project to everybody
- Organizing Fedora and Linux classes with Truong Anh Tuan and others from 2009 to present in Hanoi, Thai Nguyen
- Giving some Fedora talks and workshops at FOSSASIA 2014
I have also joined the Fedora sub-projects, including:
- Fedora Ambassadors Project
- Fedora Free Media Program
Other Activities within FOSS Community
I have been participating in a large number of FOSS events as:
- Ubuntu release parties from Ubuntu 9.04 to Ubuntu 12.04 in Hanoi
- Hanoi Software Freedom Day in 2009
- GNOME 3 release party in Hanoi
- FOSS @ HUS, FOSS @ ICTU in 2011
I love GNU/Linux distros, so I want to be a FOSS contributor. Clearly, I want to be a contributor to the Fedora Project to represent, promote, expand it and its ideals to the FOSS community in my country.
In the future, I hope that Fedora will be the best OS and there will be more and more people using Fedora in Vietnam.
