I decided to try and get involved with the Fedora Project around 2014. I always wanted to get into Linux growing up; however, I never was able to get my network/wifi card to work. Luckily when I tried again a few years ago, I was lucky to have a brand that worked with the default drivers - I was finally able to begin my journey and start learning after all these years. My jobs revolved around data centers for most of my I.T. career. Recently it has been with VMware and SAP. Since we’re a heavy RHEL shop, I chose Fedora to help me further develop my skills.
Activities within Fedora
- Initially I wanted to try and join the package maintainers group but I couldn’t think of anything that was open-source and not yet in the repos. As of today, I still can’t think of anything! But I’ve been lurking at #fedora-admin to see if there’s anything I can help with since I’m currently in Infrastructure related duties at work.
- Since I’m still new to the Fedora Community, I decided to be a part of the Ambassadors Project to try and share to others what Linux is, to not be scared of it, and to learn it through the use of Fedora. It helped me improve my system administration skills and confidence and I wanted to give back to the community that helped me achieve that.
