Welcome to the Linux Foundation Forum!

Seeking new challenge :)



I'm new here but I'm not new to Linux.

This is my Wiki Page: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/amjjawad

I've been one of the most active members in Lubuntu Team for two years. I have resigned recently and I'm seeking a new challenge. I've been with Lubuntu working full time but on volunteer basis.

Anyway, I'm a bit confused and not sure which path shall I take? I love Linux, it changed my Real Life. From my profile, you can tell how much I'm active and I always used to give back and contribute to Linux. Yes, it is true that 99% of my activities were for Lubuntu but still, Lubuntu is part of Linux after all :)

These are my main ideas/plans for now: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/amjjawad#Future_Challenges.2BAC8-Plans

To be honest, I do need to find a job. Maybe all these options will never help me to pay my bills. But, how knows? maybe the new challenge can open a new door that will get me a job. I'm full of hope. One day, I will find what I am looking for :)

So, hope you could advise me or suggest anything that could enlighten my path.

Thank you so much!

    I have reviewed your ideas and they do sound good, but how about pushing a little further. Have you considered getting into application development such as contributing to xfce, kernel development or even if you eant to keep working on organiation the Linux Stardard BAse workgroup may be a good fit (http://www.linuxfoundation.org/collaborate/workgroups/lsb). On the last note the Linux Foundation has many workgroups for standardization projects that may welcome an active volunteer.
