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
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.
Since I want to be involved with the Ambassador Project, I thought I
should be involved with Marketing as well since they go hand and hand. I
would love to help as much as I can but would probably like to work helping
clean the wiki first. After a few weeks of attending the meetings and
hearing the events going on within Fedora, hopefully I’ll learn enough to
be able to branch off and help with other parts of Fedora’s marketing
Please help me get started! :)

A few weeks back, you may have received an IRC notice from the freenode
staff about their community team and a blog post they had authored on
In short, the freenode community team is looking for more ways to engage
with the open source communities throughout freenode and to showcase the
awesome work happening throughout freenode. I reached out via email to
their community team to see if Fedora could try to help pilot something
with regards to these new outreach efforts. Fortunately, the freenode
folks have been more than kind to help provide us with some awesome
opportunities! This is exciting because I think we will be helping drive
this effort throughout the entire freenode community as positive role
There's two things they were hoping to work with us on:
1) Articles about the Fedora Project, the Fedora community, or other
exciting news about Fedora for the freenode blog and other platforms
2) Hosting an AMA on IRC to accompany a blog post for community members
across freenode to ask questions about Fedora and engage with the project
They were also interested in having general articles about open source,
IRC tips, etc. that could be a good opportunity to showcase technical
expertise from Fedora community members for sharing across freenode.
One of the first things I would like to help put together for this is a
general, introductory article about Fedora for a broad open source
audience. It seems like an obvious thing to do, but I was having
troubles locating any kind of "usual spiel" on this. Since it's
something fundamental to identifying Fedora in the open source
community, I wasn't sure if there was any kind of content like this
available already we could pull from? If not, I would be happy to try
writing something up and getting feedback from the rest of the team, but
I figured I would ask first before accidentally duplicating work.
Thanks everyone! If you have any questions, feel free to ask. Also, feel
free to idle in their channel as well (#freenode-community).

My name is Donald Hardin and I am a Fedora enthusiast desiring to
contribute to the project. I have a background in linux system
administration, technical writing, and programming. I am a former employee
of Red Hat, inc which fueled my love, interest, and appreciation for
software engineering and all-things-open.
I am currently a student at The University of North Carolina at Greensboro
where i am doing some postgrad work in the Computer Science curriculum. I
want to become a formidable software engineer as my interests lie within
the web development domain.
I also enjoy writing. I have some ideas for articles that I would like to
contribute towards Fedora Magazine, including one that is ready to be
pitched immediately. I would also be happy to collaborate with other
authors and assist in any way I can.
I hope you will grant me access to draft posts on the fedora magazine
wordpress instance. I look forward to working with you all. If you feel
like chatting via IRC, I am usually in the #fedora channels as d0nn1e.
