Personal Information

Full name: Thang Nguyen Nang

Gender: Male

Date of birth: 28th, June, 1988

Nationality: Vietnam

Background

I knew about GNU/Linux operating system and Fedora was the fist OS that I was working on two years ago. I love using GNU/Linux OS for several reasons. Fist, I love "Freedom" and GNU/Linux is a "Free" OS. The second thing is that the GNU Project has a huge number of distributions, so I can easily choose suitable distros I like. Finally, GNU/Linux OS has many advantages, especially in security.

It is true that I love Fedora so much than other GNU/Linux distros because of the Fedora's Core Values.

I am currently an active member of the Hanoi Linux User Group (HanoiLUG).

Activites within Fedora

I organized and participated in Fedora events, including:

  • Distribute Fedora Medias (CDs,DVDs) for free to students studying at my university and others
  • Organize Fedora release events with Mr. Truong Anh Tuan [2] from Fedora 14 to Fedora 16 in Hanoi
  • Help students and everbody join the Fedora Project and its Sub-Projects
  • Explain to everbody about four core values of Fedora frequently
  • Organize Fedora and Linux studying classes with Mr. Truong Anh Tuan [3] and others from 2009 to present in Hanoi, Thai Nguyen, etc

I also joined the Fedora Sub-Projects, including:

  • Fedora Ambassadors Project
  • Fedora Free Media Program

Other Activities within FOSS Community

I participated in a large number of FOSS community events such as:

  • Ubuntu release parties from Ubuntu 9.04 to Ubuntu 11.10 in Hanoi
  • Software Freedom Day from 2009 up to present
  • GNOME 3 release party in Hanoi
  • FOSS@HUS, FOSS@ICTU in 2011

Objective

I love GNU/Linux so much, so I want to be a FOSS Contributor. Actually, I want to be a Contributor to the Fedora Project to represent, promote, expand the Fedora Project and its ideals to the large FOSS Community in my country.

Summary

In the furture, I hope that Fedora will be the best OS and there will be more and more people using Fedora in Vietnam. Finally, I want to say "Thank you!" to all of Fedora members and Fedora Community.
