this is Andrea. I am a italian software engineer working in the automotive
industry. I am confident at writing C, C++ and python code. During my
everyday work I am taking care of real time applications for embedded ECUs.
During my free time I like reading and studying. I always admired the
fedora community and I am a huge fan of open source software.
I hope to learn new stuff, improve my coding skills and of course give my
contribution to Fedora.
Cordiali saluti / Best regards,
Myself Jay Dev Jha, B.Tech Computer Science and Engineering Department, Indian Institute of Information Technology, Manipur,India.
I am an outreachy applicant and wanted to contribute to Fedora.
Hence, May I request to guide me through the path to get started and work with your organization. I really wanted to initiate earlier with some good first issues, minor bugs, some project links so that I can be familiar with the working strategies of the Fedora and thereafter be experienced with functionalities of the organization.
I'm Muhammad Tehami, you probably know that by now :D. I'm from Karachi,
Pakistan. I've recently completed my bachelors in Computer Science and
currently working as a DevOps Engineer in Nisum.
I started using Linux in 3rd year of bachelors. I used to be on Ubuntu but
switched last year to Fedora. My skills include Bash, Python, Java,
knowledge of cloud providers (AWS, Azure, GCP).
In the Fedora Project I'm interested in infrastructure and packaging
related work, but I'm also from one of those people who don't want to limit
themselves to some particular tech, except UI :D. Jokes apart I've also
worked on UI some years back and it wasn't that bad experience. I'm also
interested in some low level kernel stuff but need to work on my OS and C
Apart from software development I love learning about the cosmos and
reading books. My hobbies are table tennis, cricket, martial arts and
Thanks to @nasirhm who inspired me to join Fedora Project. Looking forward
to contributing to Fedora.
Thanks & regards
Greeting Fedora, group leaders, and community!
My name is Tegan-Jean Hillman, I also go by Mouse. I live in Mid-Michigan, which is part of the United States eastern timezone. I am a 35-year-old transgender women. I am currently a culinary student, but has also worked in group homes and as basic home care, specializing in nutrition and physical/mental developmental disabilities.
I have been using Linux since the end of my junior year of high school when a very well known operating system crashed on my computer right before my final exams. Furthermore, I have been a frequent distro-hopper during that time, with most of that time being in Debian based systems because of the laptop I was using. Though I always find myself coming back to Fedora every few years. The few recent editions though have really impressed me. I have also started to move deeper into interactions with a few other users and have really enjoyed the interaction of the community. It really is somewhere I would like to consider my home distro from here on out. This has only grown as I have read the welcome information, and have seen how you are trying to live up to the Four Foundations.
I have always pretty much just been a desktop user, with very few reasons to move onto the server side of things. I use Gnome 3 and KDE Plasma pretty much equally. Recently I have tried to learn a little coding, though I am not far past the hello world side of Python. This is also the first time I have volunteered to a project such as fedora. I think it would be best to start at something like 2-4 hours a week until I learn my way around things.
I really love that here is a diversity team and really have interest in helping there. I think my previous training can be helpful in terms of accessibility and helping to find ways to make Fedora a more inclusive and welcoming space for all. I also would enjoy writing the things that fedora is working, or has worked on, especially in the context of the Foundations. I am sure there are other areas I would be willing to help in if discovered, and will continue as I learn even more about Fedora.

Hi, I'm from Southeast Africa, specifically Mozambique, last year I finished the study with BLFS, and I feel ready to support you in the development of this magnificent operating system. I have no problem handling unix tools, writing shell scripts (I like zsh), programming in C/C ++ among other things. I look forward to working with you for long periods of time.
My name is Aman Thakur, I live in India.
I’m a second-year CSE undergraduate at the Army Institute of Technology, Pune.
Presently I’m in the open-source community of my college and guiding the juniors of my college gives immense pleasure when you helping them to learn about git and GitHub.
I am fond of open-source software. I like the concept of Open Source how we can work not just for improving the software as per our needs but also helping others by contributing to the project.
I have taken part in a few of the open-source programs such as Hactoberfest2020 and also contributed to an organization named serverless during the last semester of my college.
My first encounter with Fedora was my first CS practical session which was being conducted in Linux Distro named Fedora and I was fascinated by the UI experience and get found of this Distro.
My interest lies in programming and learning what's new in the field of technology can be said like a tech geek. I am consistent with my work and completes work in time. My interest draws me towards the Linux from windows initially it hurts to come out of my comfort zone but later I enjoyed it a lot.
I acquire these skills in python3 and c++ programming languages and get started with web development and came across libraries such as Flask, get to learned frontend library such as react.
What draws me to this organization is #Web Developer or Administrator as it coincides with the skill I possess and get to learn more while being with your organization which will also going to brush up my skills and pose a challenge to what I learned.
I'm already on mailing lists, pagure.io, I have a FAS account: amanthakur and I followed fedora’s mission and foundation, the conduct of conduct, 12-18 month community objective, and how to become a successful contributor.
Thanks to Akashdeep Dhar who helped me a lot and also thanks to Ankur Sinha to help me to connect to the organization.
