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.Update(19fed2009) the server is on. Most files are stored, rsync is completing them. Test looks fine so far.
  • Participate in the Spanish translation of The unofficial Fedora FAQ
  • Help on the documentation of Amateur Radio applications that are included on Fedora
