Columbus, Ohio - July 30. Ohio LinuxFest is very pleased to announce that Robyn Bergeron will be a keynote speaker at the 2013 event, to be held September 13-15 at the Greater Columbus Convention Center.

As leader of the Fedora Project, Robyn Bergeron is responsible for bringing the open source community together to develop and deliver Fedora, a Red Hat-sponsored community project. Fedora strives to include the best free and open source technology, integrated into a Linux distribution that anyone can download, use, modify, and redistribute. In her role as Fedora project leader, Bergeron acts as the Chairman of the Fedora Board, and also works closely with Fedora's program manager, engineering manager, and Red Hat's Community Architecture team to ensure Fedora makes consistent and substantial progress in its mission to advance free and open source software.

Bergeron began contributing to the Fedora Project in 2009 and was hired by Red Hat in November 2010 as the Fedora program manager. Among her many other contributions, including managing Fedora 15 and 16 release programs, she served as lead for the community Fedora Marketing team, organizing release marketing for several consecutive releases of Fedora. Also recognized as a Fedora Ambassador, Bergeron frequently travels to regional events to speak about Fedora, open marketing, and other subjects stemming directly from her community work.
