Background

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

Activites within Fedora

I have been organizing and participating in Fedora events, including:

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

I have 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 events as:

  • Ubuntu release parties from Ubuntu 9.04 to Ubuntu 12.04 in Hanoi
  • Hanoi Software Freedom Day in 2009
  • 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.
