Hello, My name is Riya Bisht. I'm a junior Computer Science & Engineering student from India. My interests lies in the following fields: Operating systems(Linux), Networking, Cybersecurity, Cloud Computing and Virtualization. I know C/C++, Python, Flutter, Java, HTML, CSS, Bash scripting, Git/Github. I started using Linux as my main operating system during the start of the year 2022. Before that I was a full-time Windows user and used to work on Linux on virtual machines but then decided to shift to Linux full-time in order to know more about this operating system. I've tried multiple Linux distributions including Ubuntu, Arch, Fedora, Kalilinux, and currently I use EndeavourOS(arch based distribution). During this process I got acquainted with FOSS and started contributing to KDE which was my first Desktop Environment. I've also tried building GNOME apps.
During my free time, I try to read Linux From Scratch and watch Open source events.
As I am new to the Fedora ecosystem and to get acquainted with it, I would like to start with testing and packaging work because I have always been curious about package management systems in Linux. I'm a Fedora KDE Sig Member and I'm excited about giving back to this open source community.
Currently, I'm trying different things like: Rpm & Flatpak Packaging, and trying to contribute to Fedora Kionite
My past contributions to Linux and FOSS
- Solving technical bugs for KDE
- Testing EndeavourOS
- Fedora Kernel Testing
- Built QT/QML based apps
- Worked on virtual machines to test different Desktop Environments like Budgie, KDE, GNOME
Activities within Fedora
- Contributor to the Fedora Testing team.
- Contributor at https://fedoraproject.org/w/index.php?title=LocalContacts
- Participant at Fedora-KDE SIG (https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/SIGs/KDE)
Glad to be among the greatest minds ;)
