Who am I? I am a serious word nerd. I studied engineering at college and then at uni I studied languages and translation. I started working as a Tech Writer part time in my final year of uni. That was over 20 years ago. Far out. I joined Red Hat in 2006 as a Tech Writer in Brisbane, and for the last couple of years I've been working as an editor for all our training courses.
I don't really have a fav course; I like the whole learning experience.
Current OS: Fedora 27

Hello. My name is Michael Pipkin and I am in Fayetteville, NC. I am currently taking classes at Fayetteville Technical Community College. This is my first experience with Red Hat. I am very interested in learning more about this flavor of Linux.
Greetings! My name is Jim and I am a curriculum architect for Red Hat Training. Currently my gig is OpenShift training. I've been around Red Hat for 11 years now and really enjoy the culture and work with the best team of people a guy could ever be associated with.
I'm always open to hearing about new ideas for training, so send them my way.

I really enjoyed designing, participating in the writing, and teaching Introduction to Containers, Kubernetes, and Red Hat OpenShift (DO180). I like to see how students react when they create their first containerized application. Of course, it is fun to work with OpenShift and I enjoyed creating the student's first experience working with this important platform.
My next favorite class is Red Hat OpenShift Development I: Containerizing Applications (DO288). It is full of use cases for developers to make the most of the OpenShift Container Platform.
From an instructor's perspective, I love you reply. I think that DO180 and DO288 is the perfect combination. Why? I get to see that "the penny has dropped" moment. When students get why containers are insufficient for enterprise requirements. I have a video idea on this, and this has inspired me to put my idea forward. Cheers mate!
I second your comment on DO288. Its a fantastic class for developers and I truly enjoyed delivering that class.
My favourite course has been DO280.
