my name is Kai Heimann and I live in Townsville, Australia. I am a
student at James Cook University, studying a Bachelor of Information
Technology, currently in my second year.
I would like to get actively involved in the Fedora Project as I use
Fedora and am always recommending it to people. I believe that OSS is a
solution for most people out there, but it does take the involvement of
the community to make sure that it keeps growing, changing and
improving. My goal in the Fedora Project is to try and aid others in
becoming more adept at using Linux based operating systems, by ensuring
that the software and documentation that is provided is first class. I
am mostly interested in writing How-tos and mini How-tos, but would also
like to get involved in proof reading documentation.
I believe that I can be of benefit to the Fedora Project in a number of
ways. As I have been mostly a writer of academic documentation,
including reports, proposals and essays, with limited exposure to
writing tutorials, I am open to suggestions as in where to get started
on this track. I have a moderate amount of computer knowledge, both in
software and hardware, spending most of my time learning new skills that
allow me to enhance my Linux experience, mostly at the shell. I am able
to do some programming in C++, Java, C# and Python, as well as shell
scripting, with a sound knowledge of program logic and design. My
biggest asset that I believe that I bring to the project is my belief in
the OSS philosophy and the Fedora Project, with a strong desire to get
professionally involved in Linux upon graduation.
I hope to work with all of you in the future and being of benefit to the
Project in the best way that I can be.
