Hi, I am Pramod
Working as Assistant Professor in MIT Aurangabad, and also working as Red Hat Trainer. Open Source has given me the way to lead in my as well as student life to enlighten them with the skills that have proven to be a world leader. You can customize collaboration and do a lot of practices that are nowadays used by many Industries.
I have great experience of using open source software. Meet experts, developer of many softwares, learning new technology directly from them.
We usually meet and greet to share and learn from each other about new technologi, get help of problem we can not solve by self, having fun together.
We could go attend many open source Conference overseas, for free accomodation and transportation.
By using the open source software, we might find any bugs and report to the developer, and share, introduce or teach other peple to use the open source software.
So, open source software, rock!
I had my first contact with open source in my first year college, since that time i loved the flexibility and great integration that open source provided to all areas.
The open source world has opened up my eyes to the fact that as humans, we can do a lot more good when we collaborate freely. So much can be said from how open source enables people to do more without "restrictions".
In 2006, a bar buddy of mine told me "Hey Pat, this Linux thing is going to take off. Learn Linux as it's everywhere. Simply take your desktop, and play around with Linux. Tear it down, put it in, and just use it."
Granted its 2020, and I have "dabbled" in Linux over the years with various distros, but until about 3 years ago when I went into the Cloud team, I have been drinking the Microsoft Kool-aid. Since 2017, I have transformed into Cloud and Linux and can say I could not be happier in my career. Having said that, I look forward to my goals in getting Red Hat certified.
I really wish I had doubled-down on Linux earlier in my life. Granted I am 37 now, and am fortunate to keep learning Red Hat and working with Linux at my job, but I am happy that "now" its being good.
The good news is that you're only 37, and that you put down that Microsoft drink. You've got a lot of time to take advantage of the opportunities that exist in this Linux space - more specifically, this Red Hat Linux train. Welcome aboard!
