Revision as of 05:20, 16 February 2009

Yn1v: Neville A. Cross

Neville A. Cross

I am Admnistrative Manager at Hotel Mansion Teodolinda at Managua city, capital of Nicaragua. I have a business degree, so I am not a deep knowledgeable computer person. I am a Amateur Radio since 1993, and a enthusiast on packet radio. By now I have a license of the highest level.

My very first attempts with linux were with Red Hat around 1999, I had several hardware problems and leave it for some years. I took a book of FC4 bible in 2006 and have been using Fedora as my main OS ever since.

There is no much Linux formal training opportunities at Nicaragua, so I took a short course in Linux Server Administration based on openSUSE (May - June 2008). This helped me a lot to fill in where my empiric learning have left voids.

I have joined the local Fedora community called Fedora-ni on march 2008. By the same time I have joined the local LUG: GUL-NIC (Grupo de usuarios Linux de Nicaragua).

I applied to become fedora ambassador on August 20th, 2008.

Fedora Ambassador

Groups

Tasks

Projects as an Ambassador

  • Promote a monthly gathering where users that get Fedora installed from different install parties can get support. Working with local FOSS community we have established Pizza-Bash events. This are an informal activity where people can get help face to face. I have been hanging Fedora posters and helping Fedora users.
  • Set up a local repository at Nicaragua. In the mean time set up a private repository for updates a give access to users that do not have internet and also to be used at install parties without internet access. A local ISP has shown interest in this project, they are allocating server space for this.
  • Participate in the Spanish translation of The unofficial Fedora FAQ
  • Help on the documentation of Amateur Radio applications that are included on Fedora
