I am Anuraag. I'm currently a computer science graduate student at Stony Brook University, and my journey into the world of FOSS began during Hacktoberfest by contributing to small repositories. What struck me the most was the incredible support and friendliness of the open-source community and how much knowledge one gains when contributing. Recently, I had the pleasure of contributing to BigBone, a Mastodon client library written in Kotlin. I was not very familiar with Kotlin but still the maintainers were really helpful and guided me through the project and I was able to make a pull request and learn a new language.
Fedora has been my main operating system for a while now, and Windows for occasional gaming. My love for tinkering and experimenting is what drew me to Linux. I had been distro hopping before, going from Ubuntu to Debian and finally settled on Fedora. It felt the right blend between having the latest packages and being quite stable at the same time.
I consider myself a bit of "jack of all trades, master of none," I have dabbled in various domains like operating systems, compiler design, machine learning and networks. In terms of programming languages, Python, C, and C++ are my mainstays, but I'm always eager to learn and explore others.
For real-time chat, I'm open to any platform but matrix would be preferred. In terms of commitment, I'm aiming to dedicate around 8-10 hours per week to volunteering which can change based on whether I have exams or not. If anyone has suggestions on where to start or would like to collaborate on a project, I'm all ears! Let's build something great together!
Looking forward to getting to know all of you better and contributing to the fantastic work happening within the Fedora community.
Hello everyone, my name is Davide, and I've been a IoT firmware/software since 2011. I'm a father of two beautiful girls and a strong advocate for Linux. After years of using Linux for work, I'd love to offer my support to sustain the open-source community.
I've always used Debian for embedded systems and servers at work, but since I started contributing to some open-source Rust projects, I discovered Fedora and fell in love with its huge bleeding edge repositories. Recently, I've been exploring the Fedora community, which is among the friendliest and most welcoming. This motivated me to give back and lend a hand to help this community continue growing.
Primarily, I work as a developer using C and Rust, but in the past, I was a certified Apple Trainer, a job that taught me to interface with people. Therefore, I could also contribute by writing documentation or providing support to people, as I've spent several years interacting with companies and students.
I hope I've described myself clearly enough. Now, I'll continue studying the material received on pagure.io and hope to make myself available to the team as soon as possible.
Greetings to all,
