I'm a 28 year old systems architect from Jersey City, NJ. Mostly
during my work life I work with very high-end production systems, all
running RHEL. At home, I use Fedora for my desktop, and try to
advocate other people to do it. I'm an RHCE  who's actively
working on RHCA.
Welcome to the Fedora Ambassador from another East Coaster.
I attend at least two events every months (NYLUG  and the New York
Linux Meetup ). There are others that I would get involved with as
I get time and am informed of them. At these events, I try to
advocate Fedora to the extent that I can. I may attempt to put

Let me know if there is other advocacy that I can do within the NYC
