This seems to be the defacto template at this point, so I am going to use it as well

Who I am:

As my display name says, I am Joshua Hinton. I am a Consultant for Red Hat, and loving every minute of it!

Why I am here:

I recently got involved with the Red Hat Adopt and Academy program, and this learning community is one of the resources they promote. I would love to be able to direct more students here, and hope we can expand out to as many interested people as possible.

Where I'm based:

United States: Basically wherever my next project is based!

My workstation:

Lenovo Thinkpad T480s, running Fedora 29 (as of writing this).

My favorite tech topic:

Virtualization. I think it's an awesome concept in general, and I always love learning more about it and talking about it (by no means does this make me an expert).

Favorite Red Hat memories:

Tech Exchange 2018!


Looking forward to being involved with everyone here!

Hi all!

I was excited to learn about RHLC, and wish to be very active around here!

I'm Marcelo Vital, a CSM from Red Hat Brazil. I work at the Sao Paulo office, and have been with Red Hat for nearly six months only, but loving it!

Despite "not needing" it for my role, I wish to learn more the technical aspects of our technology so I can better help our customers using it , solving issues and planning for a better implementation. So, my plan is to take courses available in RHU and take certification exams in the near future.

Oh, you don't know what a CSM does? Ask me, I'll be happy to clarify it! :)

Hello everyone! Josh here, a CSM from Singapore. I'm just done with RH124 and 134, and will take EX200 next to become a RHCSA. It's not part of my professional development as I'm in a non-technical role, but I'm interested to go technical.

Greetings Red Hat Learning Community! My name is Russ Blackburn and I am on the User Experience team at Red Hat. I primarily focus on improving the UX for Subscription Management (RHSM) and Product Downloads. I've yet to take advantage of Red Hat courses but I hope to change that very soon. My goal is to train and learn so that I am more fluent when I speak with my customers. Thanks, Russ

Yo -

Im Nuno Martins - Based in JHB South Africa - 

I have a mixed background predominantly focussed in the Media and Entertainment infrastructure - So my focus has always been on storage and file systems, with backing skills around Linux and OpenSource as well as the enterprise platforms Apple used to offer many many years ago.  I have been a linux user since my youth, but professionally its something I am really passionate about. 

I have a strong consulating background and you will typically find me building solutions or testing POC at the bigger broadcasters and Post Production houses. 

I recently became a RHCI and am hoping to diving more and more into that as well as keeping a strong consulting fucus. 

This year is the year I hope to get my RHCA and I am currently studing Ansible and CEPH.  Really keen on sharing perhaps diverse know-how and learning on here

My name is Jason Hiatt and I am from Indiana.

I am an infrastructure developer for a financial company.  I do lots of scripting and automation and I manage several OpenShift clusters.

I have been using Linux and Open Source software since the late 90s and have been an active member in the tech community.

I hope to get my RHCA this year and am currently studying for the EX405 exam.  In my free time I enjoy spending time with my family, golf and billiards.
