That's me!

Joe O'Dell

Hi, My name is Joe O'Dell and I've been working on Fedora for quite a while.

I will try to keep this short, as there are lots of places online where you can read more about me.

I'm a student at an Upper (Secondary) School in Bedfordshire (UK), I'm a GEEK and I have a passion for FLOSS, Linux and Software Freedom. :)

I have some of the more usual hobbies, other than being a geek, such as reading, making cool-beans friends and enjoying life!

Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions, and do have a look around!

Regards,

Joe

Me & Linux

Although I'm still at school, I've been using Linux for quite a while now - I first started using it way back in 2005, when I finally decided to give MS the boot. I'd finally become tired of paying for an OS, while there were perfectly good ones (and even better ones!) available on the internet.

I have a passion to share Linux, and hopefully I can benefit a lot of people!

Me on the Internet

I have a collection of sites floating around the website, please visit them!

I also have some useful sites which I'd quite like you to visit!

  • Ubuntu-UK - The Ubuntu-UK group, where I am also a member. I use Fedora and Ubuntu equally on my machines
  • DFEY - DFEY is a group of young people from across the UK who aim to promote FLOSS and Libre to other young people and schools. I'm a member :)

Activities within Fedora

  • Free Media contributor since 2009!

I love being part of the FreeMedia group, as it lets me give something back to the world :)

I don't have extreme amounts of money that I can give, but by sending a couple of 25p discs every month, I know someone else has experienced linux, and that's all good!

  • Promoting Fedora

I aim to promote Fedora (but also other Linux distros) to the wide community in which I live in. This is why I have set up my own LUG (Linux User Group), as I believe that there is a lot I can help others learn, and Fedora is a part of it!

If you're interested in my LUG, have a look at bedslug.co.cc
