My name is Héctor Louzao I am from Caracas, Venezuela. Living now in Spain. I have studied a "Degree in Technical Engineering in Computer Management", and I'm also a qualified IT technician. I like to learn and I'm trying to be a Good developer and System Administrator. I used many operating systems, but none satisfy me completely. So I switched to Linux and loved it!

  • Language: Spanish, English


I use Fedora since the 14 release (and before some betas in spare time) and use it at home. I'm a fan of all the Linux world, so I also experiment with Different Version, But when I meet Fedora I be shocked I'm a Big fan of GNOME and Actually, my main machine runs Fedora with Centos inside Gnome-Boxes and KVM.

I have worked as a developer, analyst and project leader in finance (banks) and manufacturing (footwear) companies (for 13 years) using the following tools :

Language Data Base O.S Hardware Editor Manage Project
Assembler Sql Dos Os-390 Tso SDLC
Cobol Vsam Mvs As-400 Roscoe

In the last 13 years I moved to another country and realy was a very dificult to get a job here (situation, I'm not in the right place, etc), so I decide to move forward and evaluate an alternative then when I discover linux and networking, I just in adaptation process to be an Network Engineer, Linux System Administrator and DBA...

I’ve spent a lot of time in the Fedora community, specially the last 10 years... keeping my focus in AskFedora Question/Answer Site, Since 2018 I'm part of Fedora Join Group, performing different tasks in both groups as you can see in Fedora Activities Wiki Section.
