Background

Fedora was one of the fist GNU/Linux distros that I was working on. I love working on it for several reasons. Fist, 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:

  • The Hanoi Linux User Group (HanoiLUG)
  • Fedora Vietnam
  • Ubuntu-VN

Activites within Fedora

I was organizing and participating in Fedora events, including:

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

I've also joined the Fedora Sub-Projects, including:

  • Fedora Ambassadors Project
  • Fedora Free Media Program

Other Activities within FOSS Community

I was participating in a large number of FOSS communities events such as:

  • Ubuntu release parties from Ubuntu 9.04 to Ubuntu 12.04 in Hanoi
  • Software Freedom Day from 2009 up to present in Hanoi
  • GNOME 3 release party in Hanoi
  • FOSS@HUS, FOSS@ICTU in 2011

Objective

I love GNU/Linux distros so much, 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.

Summary

In the future, I hope that Fedora will be the best OS and there will be more and more people using Fedora in Vietnam.
