Brazilian, from São Paulo, with more than 15 years working as a software developer, I had the opportunity to work and test various distributions and open source softwares throughout all those years.
I started working with Microsoft solutions (VB, ASP, etc), then migrate to other languages like PHP, Python, Java... and finally, to more modern languages such as Ruby, Elixir, etc.
My experience with Linux came in the same way: I started working and studying using Conectiva Linux, then Mandrake, Mandriva, RedHat, until I finally start using Fedora (still Fedora Core at that time). At the time that "Kurumin" was the solution for those starting in the Linux world, I also had the opportunity to meet other distributions such as Slackware and Debian, but I believe that due to my whole trajectory, in conjunction with Fedora principles "Freedom, Friends, Features, First", Fedora was the distribution that I most identified with, and since the time of the Fedora Core, I have been using it.
As companies move toward for digital transformation, seeking to innovate the way they manage their infrastructure - such as migrating to Cloud and DevOps, for example - I believe that strongly driving the adoption of open source solutions by companies, I have directed my efforts to research solutions to these two major fronts.
In parallel to all of this (such as the use of Containers, Flatpaks, immutable systems, etc.), I believe in the potential that new Fedora distributions such as Atomic and Silverblue brings to both Cloud administrators (for use on their hundreds of servers / containers), and developers (who also need lightweight, standardized systems to run their applications and even develop locally on their notebooks), so I am a part of this Fedora community, to motivate, encourage, and contribute more and more to foster the use of these solutions in companies and show how open source is a fundamental part to the transformation devops that companies seeks today.
