My name is Roní Gonçalves. I am an electrical engineer specialized in digital circuit

As I do not work with what I would like yet, it does not mean I cannot talk about it or
rather write about it :-P That is why I would like to become an author for Fedora
I would like to write mainly about how to simulate digital systems coded in Verilog using
Icarus and Verilator; how to install and use SystemC in Fedora; how to install, set up,
and use MyHDL (python-based), Chisel and SpinalHDL (scala-based) in Fedora.
I could write a little bit about other softwares we have thanks to the Electronic Lab
(former?) spin. I could as well write about simulating electronic circuits using gEDA and
quics or even about designing circuits using kiCAD in Fedora.
Much more rarely I could write about how to do some sysadmin tasks in Fedora like using
ClusterSSH (and its alternatives) or how to deal with lots of xml files when cats and
greps are not enough, etc... These are just some ideas I have for pitches that I still
have to write properly if I am accepted as an author of Fedora Magazine :-)
Hi Roni, and welcome. We'd love to have you on board as an author.
The Electronics Lab is no longer built in Fedora, although lots of the
apps are still in the Fedora repo. I would suggest picking a few apps
and then showing how users can put them to use to design or simulate
We would also love to have articles on sysadmin tasks, and the XML
file manipulations sound like a a great idea. Maybe you could pile in
a few, like "3 quick hacks for dealing with XML files."
