Hi! My name is Giovanni Grieco, I am 21 years old and I come from Italy. Passionate about operating and control systems, I like messing up with Linux and devices. Currently I am an undergraduate student in Computer and Control Engineering at the Polytechnic of Bari.

My interest in Fedora dates back to a long time ago, when I started to have problems with proprietary software, which I could fix only if I had the possibility to reprogram them. This issue was resolved when I discovered Linux and tried out some distributions here and there. What I appreciated the most was the insanely detailed documentation and the fact that it was open for modifications!

Only a couple of years ago I chose Fedora as my primary OS. Fedora was able to catch my attention because it is so easy to customise and make it personal. As an example, I did a custom configuration for my colleagues at university, a common and unified development environment. It's so good that we don't have problems related to the OS and system differences anymore!

Today I do anything with Fedora, and I'm happy to assist my friends migrating to it: a difficult adventure, but exciting and full of small problems that I love to fix in my free time!

Activities outside Fedora

GDG Bari member

I have joined recently the Google Developer Group in my town. I'm happy to expose crazy ideas and organize wonderful events with extraordinary people! Most of these events and talks are all about open source technologies and software engineering methods like Agile Development.

Embedded Systems Engineer

I've been working on the design and production of a control system powered by Linux and embedded in a Formula SAE car. I use a Raspberry Pi 3 B+ to do all the magic. This is not a job but an extracurricular activity at my university. What drives me most is the amount of knowledge that I acquire month after month about the Linux kernel and industrial communication protocols (such as CAN).
