Please welcome our newest ambassador Fabian. Heres a bit more about him in his own words
"What have you done already for openSUSE?" I'm new to this community, so I haven't done anything for openSUSE so far.
"What are your plans for promoting openSUSE? Please tell us what you want to do the next 6 months." I'm honestly: I'm 17 years old and a student of a higher technical institute for information technology, so I haven't much possibilities to promote for openSUSE e.g. on various events. So I would promote for openSUSE in diverse companies or schools in the immediate vicinity as far as I have the time and the possibilities as a student.
"Are you ready to start promoting openSUSE?" Generally yes, I'm ready to start promoting for openSUSE, but how I've already said, I'm 17 and student so I'm not a man who is everytime available for promoting.
"What do you think is the best kept secret of openSUSE?" I think openSUSE is like a blossom which has to flourish so promoting is a really important fact. On my mind, openSUSE has a magical effect on people who use it. It's full of possibilities and professional features, and it's free.
"Why do you love to do this?" I think "love" is a little bit disproportionate. OpenSUSE becomes more and more important this times I think because of these thinks i said one question above. Promoting is an important fact, and I want to be a small piece of this community, not a big piece, but a small one, small but nice. ;)
"How did you start with with Linux/openSUSE? What is your level of experience?" I collected my first experience with openSUSE 2 years ago, in school during my programming lessons. We programmed in C with openSUSE 11 these times. In higher grades, we changed to Java and C#, our teacher is a fan of windows but I stuck to a linux operating system (Ubuntu) using "MonoDevelop" and "Eclipse". Our school is orientated to computer networks, so we have a lot of lessons about network engineering like "local networks", "global networks", "network security", "network managment", "network programming" and so on. We do a lot of Windows stuff in this lessons, but parallel we do the same things (DNS, DHCP, sser and group management, and a lot more) with linux operating systems (CentOS, Oracle Solaris, Red Hat). Private I use Mint Linux and Ubuntustudio with a real-time-kernel for audio- and video-editing.
How I said, I'm only 17, a stundent, I have not much possibilities to promote and I'm a really "unmighty" person for promoting but I hope I have answered your questions as you expected and I could be a small piece of this community in future.
I also have a question if you allow me to ask: What espacially do you expect from an openSUSE ambassador? Are there any special things? I have read a lot of this issue, but there is so much information that it seems a little bit confusing to me so I hope you don't care if I ask you this question. I have a lot of information about the ambassador project, so I hope I do not misinterpret this. When this case comes true, that I'm false with my expection of the ambassador project, I hope you won't be angry/sad about my precipitous acting and stopping the procedure becoming an ambassador.
