Hello and Welcome Everyone!:)

My name is Sandra Moldoveanu and I have been Program Manager for the Open Source Academic Program- Red Hat Academy in EMEA since 2017. I am currently focusing on Europe, Russia, Israel and CIS Countries. I have international experience having lived and graduated in the UK, Germany and France with studies in Business and Master in International Management with MBA Accreditation. I have been working in Sales in the IT field since graduation. I speak 5 foreign languages and I am based in Germany.

I am passionate about the Red Hat Academy program as I believe in it, see the importance and impact of it and I am so pleased to see the progress we have made as a Red Hat Academy Team in the last years. I love helping students gain the theoretical and practical skills from Red Hat, the global Open Source leader to reach their academic and career potential, empowering them to be successful in the challenging fast-paced market.

I look forward to getting to know you, Red Hat Academy students and instructors and I am excited about our ongoing conversations within this great community platform.

Thank you for being part of the Red Hat Academy- Open Source family! I appreciate all your support!

Hello Everyone, I am Parul Sharma.
I am a final year MCA student from India. I have worked on technologies like JAVA, Web development etc.
I am very new to this RHA Program and looking forward to learn new things.
Fun fact : I am more interested in talking to people than to code alone.

Hi Everyone,

my name is PIetro. As my name may suggest I am Italian, but I recently moved to Berlin. Even though I have a background in Architecture and Public and Environmental policy, I always spent some time learning programming on my own, until recently when I started at 42 Wolfsburg to properly study Software Development, where I am also a Student Ambassador. At the moment I am focusing on the System Administration curriculum (nothing better than being the actual owner of your own device), but since I am still studying I am very interested in attending all of the courses provided by Red Hat Academy. I am looking forward to both learn practical skills as well as connecting with other people, both professionals and students.

Nice to meet you all

Hello All,

My name is Jeff McKinney and I teach RH124/RH134 at the University of Maryland.  My main job is in IT for the College of Engineering at the University of Maryland and I spend a significant amount of time each week working with Red Hat and Ubuntu.  I originally developed a Linux course years ago based on Ubuntu but swiched over to Red Hat and I love being able to leverage the wider range of resources available.

Fun fact:  I learned Linux on A/UX (Apple's version of Unix) on a Mac II in college.  It ran as a separate OS from the base Mac OS.

Jeff

Hi Everyone,

 

I'm Mike Smith. I'm the RHA admin here at Forsyth Tech Community College in Winston-Salem, NC. Been playing with Linux since about 2010 and it is currently my primary OS (PoPOS! is quite nice with a shoutout to system76 for putting my system togther for me!!). I don't think "that other OS" has been on my machines except as VM's for student support purposes since that date.

We at FT are fairly new to the academy but I've enjoyed teaching RH 124 and 134 so far and just convinced out program to add DO180 to the mix to help prep our students for this cloud computing world we all seem to be living in (although given what happened to Amazon Web Services yesterday, I wonder how many are second guessing those decisions :) ).

 

I'm really having fun playing with this container technology right now and working on converting my home email, CA, FTP, TFTP servers to containers just for fun.

My name is Tony Chen and a professor at College of DuPage (COD) at about 30 miles west of Chicago.  

I have transitioned from teaching Microsoft and Cisco into teaching RedHat system admin 1 and system admin 2 for the past year.  

I am looking for any opportunity to expand my knowledge and how to make myself a better teacher in this area.

I am welcome for any feedback.

Thanks
