First goals

  • To prepare a workshop/talk about Fedora to Open Source World Conference. This event will be in Malaga (Spain) on October 27-29th. I'm thinking in two different ideas for sending to call for papers. One of them is a workshop about how to install and how to use Fedora for desktop. Other is a keynote about Fedora Project beyond the distro.

Planning activities within Fedora

I'd like to become an Fedora Ambassador spreading knowledge about this fantastic distro. Usually a lot of people as friends and customers asking me about what distro is best for them. In my opinion Fedora is one of the best distros for PC and workstations and it's great for beginners.

I can contact to different universities in Andalucia (Spain) to organize workshops and conferences about Fedora. I worked as teacher in Universidad de Jaén (Andalucia, Spain) so this issue is easy for me.

I translated to es-ES a marketing flyer of Fedora Project and distro.
