René Jr Purcell - Arsenick
My name is René Jr Purcell,I am from Quebec Canada,I have been using Linux for about 10 years now, started on slackware and I became a user of Fedora since core 3, I used Debian and Ubuntu for few year and I came back to use Fedora. I'm a sysadmin working for a small company here in Quebec city, we are RedHat partner since few years and I had the chance to get my RHCE. Since this day I really focussed on Redhat offering and by definition I'm trying to use/try as much as possible Fedora release to keep in touch with new killing feature and new technology like KVM.
Activities within Fedora
It's been a long time since I started thinking about what can I do to give back, but like many others, I didn't know where to start. I've always did some "support" on IRC and forum but I wanted more. So I decided to start looking a the infrastructure group to see how it's working in the community, how people work together.
I'm still learning the process, and follow people work on fedora Infrasctructure mailling list and on IRC. As a Linux lover I would like to help Fedora project to reach new users so I started to get involved in the Ambassador group and help on planning event on release days, talk about fedora in local LUG and etc..
