Who is Leo?
Hi there! My name is Leonardo Vaz, and currently I'm living in Sao Paulo, Brazil where I work as Software Maintenance Engineer specializing on local filesystems for Red Hat.
My first contact with Open Source was back in 1998 when he got Red Hat Linux 5.1 (Manhatthan) installed in my old PC, and in last 15 years I've been involved in several activities related to FOSS, both professionally as well voluntarily. I have a large experience in deploy and management of large infrastructures, consultancy, development and training. I'm a former Conectiva employee and was responsible for Tchelinux LUG between middle 2006 to early 2010.
What am I doing here?
I consider myself a "People Person" and my main goal at Fedora is help people to find their place in the project and encouraging them to contribute.
