#125 Welcome @uhabib77
Opened 5 months ago by andilinux. Modified 2 months ago

Hello @uhabib77! Welcome to Fedora!

Before we begin, please subscribe to the Fedora join mailing list at
We use this list for general discussion, and it is also where the community
shares tasks that need help.

Then, could you please introduce yourself (preferably on the list) so that the
community can get to know you? (interests, skills, anything you wish to say
about yourself really)

In the meantime, these links would be a good read. They tell you what the
Free/Open Source community is about, and then they'll introduce you to Fedora:
what Fedora is all about, and what we do, and of course, how we do it:

If you have any questions at all, please ask! We'll use this ticket to keep in
touch! :)

Hey there,

We really hope that you were able to find something in the community that piques your interest (and if you were, we would absolutely love to hear about it). If not, please feel free to reach out to us with your questions/concerns and we would be glad to help you out. :-)

While you're at it, please go ahead and drop your introduction here as a comment under this ticket.

Hi, my name is Usman


I hope you all are well. I work in a warehouse, I want to change my career and become a software engineer. In the future, I want to work at Redhat, as a software engineer working with the Linux kernel. I want to volunteer at Fedora because I want to gain experience for a software engineer job, and so I can apply for a software engineering job and then with some more experience, I want to apply at Redhat for a software engineering job position, working with the Linux kernel.

I am using Linux mint right now, but I am going to start using Fedora Linux soon. Furthermore, I am currently taking an online course CS50 introduction to computer science. After this course, I want to start applying for software developer jobs. I want to learn Git and Linux after I have completed the course. I would appreciate if anyone could reach out to help and advise me whilst travelling on this path to become a software engineer.

Not only that, but I want to gain experience in developing software using C on Linux and working with the Linux kernel.

My other interests are cybersecurity and networking

Hope you are doing well. It has been a while since the last time we heard from you and we would like to know if you found something to be a part of. I am marking this ticket with the "Progress Check 3 - Final" now. Please note that this is a final progress check from our end, a couple of weeks without response - we would go ahead and close this ticket.
