How To Help

How can you help?

How can you help?

There are many ways you can help out -- from big to small. Every contribution helps and every helper on the ground counts.

Idea.png The HelpWanted page is always a good place to start if you can't decide where you would like to contribute to the Fedora Project.



  • Represent Fedora at a local event

It does not have to be a Linux event. Think big, go to a music or media trade show and tell them how Fedora can help solve the problems they are facing. Help people understand why open media formats are better than proprietary.

If you are looking for ready-made presentations and ideas for talks, visit individual events pages, like FUDCon If you hold a talk, consider sending the slides to Alex Maier , so they can be published for others to use.

  • Alert Fedora about an event near you

Add the event to the FedoraEvents list yourself or simply send an email to Alex Maier

Fedora Ambassadors

Fedora Ambassadors

Fedora Ambassadors are people like you and me, who go to places where other Linux users and potential converts gather and tell participants about Fedora.

Fedora Ambassadors...

  • Represent the Fedora Project to the wider public
  • Help spread the word about Fedora, Linux, and Open Source
  • Are a point of contact for local community members and channel the feedback to Fedora Project
  • Help recruit project contributors

In short, Fedora Ambassadors do everything to help promote Fedora, Linux, and Open Source, and put an individual face on Fedora.
