== About me ==
  
I have been using Linux and Free Software for 20+ years, having used Slackware, old Red Hat Linux, Debian, Conectiva Linux (worked there for 3 years) and even dropped Linux for OpenBSD for some time. In 2006 I started working for Red Hat, so using Fedora was a natural choice. Regardless of the fact that I work for Red Hat, Fedora is for me the best mixture of innovation, stability, user-friendliness and freedom, so I try to advocate Fedora wherever I go.

== Activities within Fedora ==
 
 
 
I'm a fairly active/vocal member of the free software user groups I participate, frequently giving out talks and organizing events via the local Free Software Users Group I founded, [http://oesc-livre.org/ OeSC-Livre], and via the Free Software Users Group of the state where I used to live, [http://tchelinux.org/ TcheLinux]. I've been presenting talks to classes in local universities when I get the chance, and serve as a Fedora Ambassador for the [http://pt.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mesorregi%C3%A3o_do_Oeste_Catarinense Western Santa Catarina region in Brazil].
 
 
 
As of 2013 I've been trying to do more Fedora-specific activities, so I'll see about organizing Fedora Activity Days in the local universities (or coffee shops). In 2014 I became a professor at UNOESC's Computer Engineering program, and I'm making sure that I [http://www.unoesc.edu.br/noticias/single/unoesc-chapeco-ingressa-no-projeto-fedora expand the use of Fedora throughout the program and university]. I'll continue to hold periodic events in the region helping new people use and contribute to Fedora. In 2015 my 3rd child was born and I left UNOESC, as I've been having very little free time. I'll still try to remain involved with Fedora and help when I can, likely forever.

This is what I wrote years ago when I first did this page:
 
 
 
::I am organizing weekly informal meetings, which I'm calling [[Cafe con Linux|Café com Linux]] because we simply gather together on a wireless-enabled coffee shop. Every Thursday around 18h30, we will gather together at the same place and discuss a theme that I am proposing (via email to the [http://oesc-livre.org/ OeSC-Livre] list every Monday), presenting practical things directly on a notebook and encouraging people to try on theirs as well. The themes will cover just about everything Free Software. How it began, why we do it, the history of Unix systems, efficient shell usage, programming, desktop things, all things related to the Free Software culture.
 
 
 
::I cannot expect the young people here to know who Ken Thompson or Linus Torvals are, so we'll just cover everything. Hopefully that very simple activity will achieve two important goals: getting interested people used to gathering together and discussing important topics regularly; and slowly spreading the length and breadth of the cultural elements that form the Free Software culture/world/movement. We've done the [[Cafe con Linux|Café com Linux]] a few times, and there is always someone new. I hope we will not fit into a coffee shop in some time, and then we will '''need''' a larger place (which means the mission of the [[Cafe con Linux|Café com Linux]] gatherings will be accomplished). This is '''local community bootstrapping'''! :-)
 
 
 
These days OeSC-Livre has nearly 300 members and on 2011 and 2012 we've had nice Free Software events in most of the main cities in the region. 2013 is starting a bit lazy, but we have two cities doing FLISOL, and I'll see about organizing Fedora Activity Days throughout the year at the universities in Chapecó, as well as present Fedora-oriented talks in other events nearby. I'm trying to ensure I [http://fabioolive.blogspot.com.br/search/label/fedora blog about my Fedora activities].

About me

I have been using Linux and Free Software for 20+ years, having used Slackware, old Red Hat Linux, Debian, Conectiva Linux (worked there for 3 years) and even dropped Linux for OpenBSD for some time. In 2006 I started working for Red Hat, so using Fedora was a natural choice. Regardless of the fact that I work for Red Hat, Fedora is for me the best mixture of innovation, stability, user-friendliness and freedom, so I try to advocate Fedora wherever I go. I have not been active in the community for a few years, so I'm removing myself from some groups, lists and revoking some of my own CLAs now (2018-09-20) to reflect this.
