[Fedora Women] Intro
|[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]|
Hello,My name is Rikke Giles and I found this list from the article on Slashdot.
I've been using Redhat, and subsequently Fedora, since 1997. I've been involved in computers since just before the advent of personal computers. I was taught Fortran, Basic and Pascal and went on to teach myself Prolog, C, C++, and a few others.
I tend to program exclusively in C. In the past few years I've not made as many contributions to OSS as I'd like to, although I am the author of one of the most popular how-tos for Glade. I'm also currently the Vice-President of my local LUG. I've been the President, and was Vice-President for 2 years before being President. There are two women in the LUG, which is pretty good considering we have only about 15 regular members. The other woman is the computer/math/science teacher at our local High School.
I got into using Linux because I needed a free Unix like OS on which I could program software for my graduate studies in Archaeology. I used Redhat (5.1 I think it was) because it was the only distro that worked well enough to actually use at the time. I've stuck with Redhat and then Fedora because it has basically 'just worked' for me, although I have to admit the earlier years required plenty of tweaking!
Current programming interests are widget building, astronomy, data archiving and analysis, graphical representation of data, and weather analysis.
I hope I can be of help to Fedora. It's certainly helped me throughout the years.
Cheers, Rikke _______________________________________________ @xxxxxxxxxx https://www.redhat.com/mailman/listinfo/fedora-women-list
