Introduce yourself!

Hello, my name is Brayan. I from Colombia (not Columbia). I’m studying system engineering and currently I’m in 5th semester. My first taste in the world of linux was about two years ago. I’ve used Ubuntu and also Linux Mint for a while. Two month ago I found Fedora and I’m really impressed about its community, apps, package manager and much more. I’m not an expert in the world of linux so I would like to learn a lot from you. Also I like competitive programming and C++ and next year I’m going to start to learn Python + Django in order to be a web developer. I love share knowledge with communities s I will be very happy to share with you. Thank you!

Hey, I’m Kelly. I had been using Linux since my college days (about half a decade ago) and had slight knowledge about Fedora. My career path has taken a lot of twists and turns, but gladly I make it through to become a Marketing Manager at Invictus Studio - a web design company in Dallas. Since I’ve entered this community, my exposure to Fedora and its importance has grown to vast extent and I think I’m going to explore it a lot more with all the lovely people around.

Thanks and cheers!

Hello everyone, I am Tim. I’ve run Fedora on my notebook for the past three years. I’m an old guy, a retired IT professional. I worked with everything from huge IBM mainframes to “minicomputers” to large UNIX hosts to PCs. The bulk of my work was database administration with some systems and applications programming.

I enjoy using Fedora, and I hope I can contribute here.

Hello there,

my name is Joachim, I am from Germany, 51 years old and working with computers my whole life. On my job as a system administrator I mainly work with Windows, but my heart belongs to Linux. I have not that much of experience with Linux, but I am using it as my daily driver in private since 1,5 years now.

I hope to meet a lot of Linux enthusiasts, interesting people and to learn much more about this fascinating OS.

Bye for now,
Joachim

Hi - I am Uli und komme aus… live in beautiful BC.
In my professional life I have always tried to avoid the dark side of CS (MS) and started working with UNIX / Linux sometime during the last century with a distribution called CTIX.
Right now I am happily using Fedora 31 with KDE (as a former sunnie one of my first desktops was CDE and I could never leave it after SunView was abandoned).

Hello everyone,

I’m a regular Fedora user since Fedora 25. I love FOSS projects and I fell for Fedora the first time I heard about it.

Fedora Silverblue is the reason I’m joining this rapidly expanding community :wink:
I’ve been using it since F31 and I truly believe that this is the future of Linux desktop (for a start, maybe even Linux mobile)!

Hello!

I’m Marco, and it’s a year I am a Fedora user! I started peeking into this fantastic community, first into forums, then into the Telegram Group. Users have shown me many times that Fedora is not just a piece of software, it’s a community.

I am an Electronic Engineering student, also a pianist (I used to be a composer), a photography lover, FOSS enthusiast, and many other things. Currently learning coding as a hobby.

Hi!

I’m Mario from Argentina, I’m a passionate software developer and I’ve been playing with Fedora in the last 13 years. I think it’s time to start the amazing journey to contribute on open source projects and specially in Fedora because of these wonderful years.
The latest 3 years I’ve been working on full time Golang projects, so It’ll wonderful if you could give me to learn how could I find a project to contribute?
I’ll will love to “get some hands” on Silverblue, I know is a big project but I love it!

PD: As you might know, sorry about my English but it isn’t my fist language, I’ll be do my best effort … :smiley:

I hove I’ll learn and contribute on this wonderful community! :partying_face:

Hi, I’m Glenn, 45 and live in South Wales, UK.
I’ve used Linux on and off for well over 20 years now, can’t remember my first ever distro but I do remember Red Hat 5.2 as one, and Caldera OpenLinux haha. I remember back in the day preferring KDE1 to Gnome…and while it may be an unpopular opinion here, I refer Cinnamon to Gnome nowadays :smiley: We all have our own likes and dislikes right?? :smiley:
For the last few years I’ve used Arch and later Manjaro but no longer feel the need for ‘bleeding edge’ so Fedora Silverblue seems to fit my use case.
I like to make music, and all the software I use works just fine under Silverblue so all good here…Doesn’t help my atrocious singing though!

Hello everyone, my journey into linux started back in 2013 when I first installed Ubuntu and it would take me a a good two years since then to actually grasp what linux is about. I wish the process happened faster, but I was on by my own and honestly was a bit scared to tamper too much since everything from bios/uefi and gpt/mbr to apt sources not working hitting me all at once. Sure was a struggle which would have been easier if I had tried being part of a community.

Eventually I learn a bit or two about how linux works and can configure it to my liking now. Moving to arch and the arch wiki was very helpful. It was only early on this year that I got onto fedora from debian… I liked debian a lot but yea now I get why people complain about debian not having upto date software. Arch is good experimenting tool for me, debian for stability and fedora just sits in this sweet spot in between, perfect for daily usage. With Silverblue getting popularity… I am excited to be getting in here. Internet communities are fascinating and I have been sitting on the sidelines. Let’s start with Fedora then. Already imagining where this would take me in a years time.

Anyway if anyone has been reading this long, you might as well drop in a line? :slight_smile:

ps: would like to go by the name nC.

Not quite a Hogwarts letter but it works. I recently switched to Fedora from a hybrid Debian/Slackware environment. And am now dipping my toes into the community.

Hello Everyone.

I used to be a developer 15 years ago. I went heavy into the analysis/requirements side of the house. Now I’m a Manager over a development group. I am finding so much has changed since I was a developer. My inner developer is coming out strong after being repressed for so long. I once had Red Hat Linux but it didn’t last long. So, to refresh my knowledge, I’m diving deep into Java programming, Spring and Linux. I picked Fedora because we use Red Hat Servers. So much to get caught up on. As soon as I get my new hard drive, on goes Fedora. It looks good while running from a USB device.

Hi Everyone,

I’m developer in Red Hat. I’m more and more happy about how Fedora is working. I’m working on Anaconda. So if you have any installer related questions. Feel free to contact me ;). I also have a few packages in Fedora so I’m trying to help a bit there but not that much I would like to.
I love to play with the new technology and in Fedora I have unlimited sources to do that :smiley:.
