Neal Gompa

General Information

DevOps Engineer by day, Linux systems aficionado and developer by night!

I'm a developer and contributor in Fedora and other Linux distributions, focusing primarily on the base Linux system components, such as package and software management. I'm a big believer in "upstream first", which has led me all over the open source world.

I've been a user of Red Hat Linux and Fedora since 2002, and I've been a contributor to Fedora since 2007. I used to primarily work in software and systems management projects, but now I focus on desktop Fedora Linux, especially on multimedia; video games and game development; and audio+video production on Fedora Linux.
