I started my journey in the GNU / Linux world back in 2011 while I was a student in Electronic and Telecommunication Engineering. Over the first couple of years, I learned how to deal with the basics on Fedora.

Since then, I have seen the benefits in my daily basics that has provided me Fedora in how to use the software and combine then in my work. I work as an Embedded Hardware Engineer where if I am not debugging analog signals, I am developing firmware for printed circuit boards designs over Fedora.
