Re: Introductions

I currently design our OpenStack cloud trainings here at Red Hat.  Previously, I was a an Instructor (RHCI) for a decade, and taught UNIX/Solaris for 20 years before that.

Phoenix is my home area, where I hike, bike and ride a Harley around town.  

My favorite classes to teach have been those where the students have been most challenged and eager to learn, such as RHEL Performance Tuning, HA Cluster, OpenStack, Satellite Server, and now micro-services and OpenShift.

Another favorite activity is travelling, both for teaching and for sightseeing and leanring on my own.  I have lived, worked, vacationed, or just hung out in over 25 countries.

I enjoy discussing solutions and ideas with our customers and users; looing forward to engaging with the community here.

Re: Introductions

Hi, my name is Oliver and I am a Desktop Sysadmin in Red Hat internal IT. I am the owner of the RHEL CSB (Corporate Standard Build) inside Red Hat. I am currently looking into refreshing my RHCE, and will hopefully add more certificates to my portfolio.

In my free time, I like long walks at the beach, reading a good book or having long philosophical conversations about The Ultimate Answer to Life, The Universe, and Everything... just kidding... I actually enjoy movies (Action and SyFi mainly) and (do not judge me Smiley Very Happy ) Pinterest.

Re: Introductions

About myself: I have a really long name and I always get into issues when I register it on a form <<Juán Sebastián Rodríguez Isáziga>>, I live in Bogotá Colombia, but I travel almost every week around the continent for training, meetings, consultancy or pleasure.

I want to develop more my machine learning skills, I love maths!
My favorite Red Hat course is the RH342, frustrating sometimes, but always enjoable.

Re: Introductions

Name:

Scott McBrien

Red Hatter?

Yes, since July 2001

Locale:

Atlanta, Georgia, US

Short Bio:

While in college I worked part time at the National Institute of Standards and Technology where I spent a significant amount of time working with various Unixes and was introduced to Red Hat Linux.   After graduation, I took a position with IBM Training teaching classes on Unix and Linux systems administration as well as Perl and Bash scripting. 

In July 2001 I moved to Red Hat and taught the RHCE curriculum.  Throughout my career at Red Hat, I've been an instructor, course content author, worked on the certification exam team, been a people manager, and, most recently, the product manager for Online Training.

I earned my RHCE in 2000 on Red Hat Linux 6.2  (no no, not RHEL, Red Hat Linux).

Hobbies:

As I'm impossibly old, beyond breaking hips and shaking my cane at kids to "Get off my lawn!" I enjoy reliving my own childhood with my two young children (Legos, NERF Battles, sword fights, crafts, etc.) and my time serving in a State Guard unit (a provincial unit for those of you outside the US).  AATW!

Re: Introductions

Appassionate of technologies, hacking systems since 1987 with my first 64k memory computer, I've never been far from any computer.

I love learning and to be able to teach the things I learn.

I entered in the Red Hat world, officially, in 2011 when I started delivering the Red Hat Linux System Administration courses, as I had some experience with programming I started to deliver the JBoss courses.

Now I am focused on OpenShift related courses and also I collaborated with some components on the community. I love it!
