Hello All,

I am new to the Redhat community.  I am a student at Faytech CC and I am looking forward to learning how to utilize this resource.  I work with routers/switches and firewalls so I am hoping that this course will give me a better understanding of these devices.

Hello, my name is Scott, and this is my first time using red hat and I don’t have much time working with Linux so hopefully I will learn more about it and become more skilled with it. I’m going to school to change my current career over in the IT department and hopefully find it better than the current situation that I am in. for everyone else here in school trying to better themself i wish you all the best of luck.

I am a college student/ nerd who is interested in learning about Linux and Redhat. I live in the US and I wish to pursue an associates degree in Information Technology: PC Support and Services. My hobbies consist of knitting, drawing, painting, videogames, learning about hardware repair, etc. I grew up with windows and have never used Linux before. I am looking forward to learning more about it!

Hello All,

I am an Audio Video technician in Fayetteville NC.  I love the outdoors and have in recent years become addicted to Disc Golf!  I am new to using Redhat but I am a quick learner and i am very much looking forward to diving right in.  I prefer to use a MAC currently, but after taking this course on Linux i hope to broaden my knowledge base and become much more versatile and vaulbale.  I use towork for ESPN but have recentley settled down to start a fmaily and that is why i chose to continue my education.  

I very much look forword to working with and growing with each of you on this journey for knowledge.

Greetings everyone,  I don't consider myself a nerd, but just a person who loves knowledge.  I have been in the communications field for over 25 years and loved to see technology change.  I have been part of the Apple universe for many years.  I love all things tech.  If any of you know anything about the Army I taught the 25B (Information Technology Specialist) course.  I do know a little about Linux/Unit but can't wait to learn more.  



My name is Alina Florestal and this is my first post! I have never used Red Hat before but I am excited to find new knowledge here and would like to share facts about myself, I am an Aries Sun, my favorite genre of media is horro, I like using C++ programming, and I am an IT major for my associate degree in Applied Science.


Shalom! I am super excited to be a part of this community. I know nothing right now hahahaha! I am sure all that will change soon. I wear many hats and now a Red one. I am taking classes at our local community college for Cloud Computing and Systems Security. I have never used any of this, never once used Linux or open-source. I have been waiting for a year to get to the point in school where I could take these classes. I have been meaning to use an old PC for experimenting. I really don't even know what I am talking about so I am going to leave this intro as I am super excited to be here. 

I really don't have any spare time but if I do it will be used playing around with all things Red Hat. 



My name is Bryan Leonardo and to start I just recently exited the U.S. Army. I live in Flagstaff, AZ but I’m continuing my education at Fayetteville Technical Community College. This is my first time being exposed to Red Hat. I am also not familiar with Linux. I am very green to the field of I.T. but I find myself very eager to learn about the field, specifically Cyber Security. As of now I am pursuing a certification in Cyber Security Operations, but I hope to make a career out of this in the future.



My name is Sean Kishbaugh and I live in Fayetteville, NC. I am attending FTCC with a focus on Systems Security & Analysis. I have some experience with Linux but this will be my first time working with Red Hat. I look forward to learning more about this flavor of Linux and becoming proficient in its use.

I have had several different jobs over the years and most recently was a medical assistant at a pain management practice for the last five years. My daughter was born during the beginning of the pandemic and I decided this would be a good time to return to school and focus on cybersecurity, which I have always had a interest in. I am extremely grateful I have been able to attend school online while being around her during this time and I am hopeful I will be able to find a career that allows me to be nearby her as she grows up.
