Thang Nguyen Nang
Date of birth: 28th, June, 1988
Country where I live and work now: Vietnam
I knew GNU/Linux about two years ago and Fedora was the fist Operating System that I was working on. I love working on GNU/Linux because of several reasons. Fist of all, I love "Freedom" and GNU/Linux is a "Free" OS. Secondly, GNU/Linux has a huge number of Distributions, so I can easily choose one of the best Distros I like. Finally, GNU/Linux has many advantages, especially in Security.
I am currently an active member of Hanoi Linux User Group (HanoiLUG).
Activities within FOSS Community
Within Foss Community, I organized a lot of FOSS events at school where I was studying. On the other hands, I participated a large number of FOSS events such as:
- Ubuntu release parties from Ubuntu 9.04 to Ubuntu 11.10 in Hanoi
- Software Freedom Day from 2009 up to now
- GNOME 3 release party
- FOSS@HUS, FOSS@ICTU in 2011
Activites within Fedora
It is true that I love Fedora so much than other GNU/Linux Distributions because of Fedora's Core Values (Freedom, Features, Friends and First). On the one hand, I was organizing and participating Fedora events such as:
- Distributing Fedora Media (CDs,DVDs) for free to students studying at my school and others
- Organizing Fedora release events with Mr. Truong Anh Tuan from Fedora 14 to Fedora 16 in Hanoi
- and others
On the other hand, I was also joining Fedora Sub-Projects such as:
- The Fedora Documentation Project
- The Fedora Ambassadors Project
- The Fedora Free Media Program
I love GNU/Linux so much, so I want to be a FOSS Contributor. 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.
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.
