Interview with Luis Bazan


What is your background in Fedora? What have you worked on and what are you doing now?

I have already been a Fedora contributor for 12 years, I have worked in different teams, I am in the LATAM region.

Please elaborate on the personal “Why” which motivates you to be a candidate for Mindshare.

I have always tried to do my best within the Fedora community and I would like to join the Mindshare team to share my ideas for creating tasks that help the community continue to grow as we always have.

How would you improve Mindshare Committee visibility and awareness in the Fedora community?

Currently we need to do more events or anything that joins the LATAM region that is a bit neglected. We require more activities, not only national, we also want some international activities and this problem dates back to before the pandemic that affected us all.

It is necessary to look for methods that are attractive to the community, we still have unofficial telegram channels. We want a united LATAM, LATAM v2 a new version in which we can all work hand in hand, reporting events and working as a team.

What part of Fedora do you think needs the most attention from the Mindshare Committee during your term?

The LATAM region requires mindshare’s attention to help us get out of the black hole where we find ourselves. We need to motivate the region. We require support to activate the region again.
