রিং (ring), full name Shazedur Rahim Joardar, is an Honours Graduate in English Literature as well as have a Professional Diploma in IT from NIIT in Software Engineering. I am an enthusiasts of GNU/Linux and Computing in my mother langugahe, Bengali .

From 2010 to 2016 I had worked with Jalal Ahmed Spinning Mills Ltd. as the IT and MIS Consultant. The Jalal Ahmed Group is using only Free softwares in their IT & MIS departments as the GNU/Linux based (Ubuntu Server & Linux Mint Desktop) solutions under my consultancy. Some of my factory hardwares like cone, cross roll machineries are also running on GNU/Linux.

From Fall 2014 (October) to Fall 2016 I had worked as an Adjunct Faculty member of Daffodil International University here in Dhaka, Bangladesh. Where I was teaching on Operating Systems and PL/SQL. More on that I had conducted hardware and software hacking sessions and events regularly for the pupils.

Besides my job, I love to contribute to the society by helping people on using GNU/Linux distros as a member of some Bengali forums such as প্রজন্ম ফোরাম (http://forum.projanmo.com/user3252.html), লিনাক্সদেশ ফোরাম(http://forum.linuxdesh.org/user-4.html), মুক্তপ্রযুক্তি(http://forum.fossbd.org/member.php?action=profile&uid=2), আমাদের প্রযুক্তি ফোরাম (http://forum.amaderprojukti.com/memberlist.php?mode=viewprofile&u=4760). I am a core member of Linux Mint Bangladesh (http://linuxmint-bd.org/about_us) team.

Still I am working hard to spread out GNU/Linux, Software Freedom and Computing knowledge in our mother language (Bangla/Bengali) to the entry level people of computing in Bangladesh. I personally sponsors to organize distor release parties, get togethers, seminars, barcamps and various types of technical and non-technical sessions on GNU, Linux Kernel, Ubuntu and Linux Mint through a voluntary organization named Foundation for Open Source Solutions Bangladesh (in short FOSS Bangladesh). Informations of those events can be found on FOSS Bangladesh's official website at: http://www.fossbd.org.

My email id is very public and open 24×7 to all of the Bangladeshi and the South East Asian Digital Freedom enthusiasts, lovers, users and interested ones. You may communicate with me in Bengali, Hindi, Urdu and English. My personal blog is রিং-দ্য ডন 'র ব্লগ (http://toshazed.wordpress.com)
