'''<big>Contact Details :-</big>'''
* '''Have your name on [[Ambassadors/CountryList|  Ambassadors Country List]] ''' so the people can find and contact you. 
 
* '''Be a speaker at an event.''' Clubs, Linux User Groups (LUGs), school/college/university groups can all benefit from hearing the good word about Fedora. Talk to people. Casually, in a suit, it doesn't matter.<BR>''If you were asked to talk at an event, don't panic-—browse fedoraproject.org wiki and you will find some material to get you started. FUDCon pages might be a good place to start, as most of the talks that were given at past conferences are available there for download.''
 
* '''Collect press articles about Fedora''' and post them to the [[Fedora press archive|  Press Archive]]
 
* '''Collect feedback from community members''' and submit it to the [mailto:fedora-marketing-list@redhat.com Fedora Marketing List]  or talk about it with any Fedora Ambassadors Steering Committee member.<BR>''Consider posting Fedora success stories on [[Marketing/UserTestimonials|  Fedora User Testimonials page]] .''
 
* '''Promote Fedora events.''' We organize a FUDCon, about once every three months - use contact base to gain speakers, attendees, gophers, et al.<BR>''If you want to help out organizing a FUDCon or other Fedora event, visit FUDCon/Organization to see what tasks are there to be taken care of.''

* '''Sign up Fedora Project for regional events'''-—it need not be a computer-related event to be relevant. Go to a music trade show to talk about free culture and open music formats, go to a university event to talk about Fedora to students and faculty, go to a local Linux event and get some space for a booth in the .ORG pavilion...<BR>''Once you have secured participation in an event, please add it to the FedoraEvents list!''
 
* Just make sure to '''coordinate with Fedora Marketing''' so you get support in form of money for travel, space, booth signage, trade show infrastructure, giveaways, etc.<BR>'' [[FedoraEvents/Organization|  Event Organizers' Resources]]  page is a good place to start.''
 
* '''Communicate eloquently'''. Fedora Ambassadors should be the conduct leaders for the community. Make sure you dont trash talk or be rude to anyone while wearing a 'Fedora' or even in general to the community. See CommunityConduct page for general guidelines and [[Ambassadors/Conduct|  Ambassadors conduct]]  for specific information.
 
* '''Become an expert at Fedora''' (both the project and the distribution). This way you're a constant resource to your local userbase, which will make new users more welcome to the project/distribution. When in doubt however, ask.
 
* '''Keep Up with Current Issues ''' - Fedora Ambassadors should keep up with Current Issues by tracking and reading various news resources such as [[NewsProject |Fedora News Project]] , [http://redhat.com/magazine Red Hat Magazine]  and even [http://planet.fedoraproject.org/ Planet Fedora] .

If you need stuff/money for an event make sure that this event is listed at [[FedoraEvents| Event]] page before the deadline passed for the period where the event is in.  If you miss the deadline for the [[Ambassadors/SteeringCommittee/Budget| budget]] it would become more complicate to get the money or even impossible. Because you have to ask other event owner if they can pass you some money.

How DGPLUG Happened

So, here I am doing all this wonderful stuff that, never in my wildest dreams did I ever think I would do, someday in my life. It has been quite journey since I first heard the word "Fedora". I had hardly spent two months in the college when on fine day Kushal, Subhodip, Ria and Ajitesh entered our class. They were looking for volunteers who would like to learn and share something about Linux...

They called for a demonstration after the class that day which I attended along with some of my friends. It was here that I saw an OS other than the Windows platforms... and I quite liked it . Firstly I was very much impressed with its looks; they were awesome, I had never seen something like that before. I was wondering whether it was all looks and no substance ... but then I came to know about its functions, and yes, at that very moment I was determined to be a part of this thing. Kushal then talked about the website www.dgplug.org, how Ria earned a name for herself through the Google Summer of Code and various other things.

Kushal visited our college premises again during the spring and this time, I was ready to begin my learning. Having collected all the required materials and jotted down the instructions I began my journey with Fedora which has been full of ups and downs till now. It has been a bumpy road but I am not willing to give up yet.



DGPLUG Summer Training '08

This was told to me by my two great friends.I registered for it,although late(thanks to kushal da).but alas could not join it coz of my foolishness,and got my name struck of from there.Although i the irclogs but always hate myself for not joining the camp.


Objectives

  • Revisiting programming fundamentals
  • Get acquainted with Free Software technologies
  • Gaining technical knowledge
  • Real-world project experience

Thanks to all those at DGPLUG for taking the pain to organize such a wonderful program and the trainers rishi, mbuf, pjp, kushal, and techno_freak (it is because of your assignment that I learnt all this). Thank you all. To know more about the Summer Training click here.


Bijra High School Project

This yet a another great thing which has happened to me till date.The kids there and stuff out there really amaze me sometimes.I cant express how it feel's spending time and teaching kids out there(who are very eager to learn something even more than a international school guy).This is something which i would have always love to do.
