Re: Introductions

Hello,

I'm a newb to RHA, my name is Debra Dyer, I'm a Professor at Columbus State Community College, Columbus, Ohio [approx. 28,000 students.]  I'm the Lead for the Information Technology Support Technician [ITST] Program.  There are about 400 students currently in the program.  ITST technical courses are tied to A+, Network +, Security +, and Linux Essentials.  I'm currently using Raspberry Pi's to facilitate hands-on experiences for the students.

Prior to entering Academia, I was a Network Admin for the State of Ohio.  My first Cert was Novel.  ;-)   I'm looking forward to seeing how to incorporate Red Hat into the Curriculum.

Re: Introductions

First of all, thanks for this awesome initiative!
I'm based in Stockholm Sweden but travel and operate in many regions, both for business and pleasure.
I've been in the IT business for ~20 years, consulting in storage, backups, unix/Linux, architect, trusted advisor, risk assessment, team building, etc. Currently focusing on software defined storage.

My favorite training is Ceph-125, and the Ceph Break & Fix class.

I'd love to contribute with my thoughts and knowledge and I'm sure I'll learn a lot from my peers in this forum too.

Sharing is caring!

Re: Introductions

My name is Marc Richter, I've been with Red Hat as an employee since 2015 but was a Linux engineer using their fine stuff for a few years prior. Ok, more like a decade. I feel old sometimes.

My day job is Senior Technical Account Manager. Essentially, I'm a subscription that helps my 5 or so accounts use their Red Hat products better. I've blogged about that --> https://www.redhat.com/en/blog/being-technical-account-manager-tam-day-life

When not working, I play all sorts of games. Computer games, board and card games, a weekly D&D campaign...games are awesome.

When not working or playing games, I'm a Scout leader...my son is a few requirements away from getting his Eagle, so that's cool.

I've been married...well, let's just say for a long time. Two of my daughters are in college, both doing better than I did. My wife and I also decided that 3 dogs and a cat needed to be added to the household, because 4 kids wasn't enough. We might be kinda dumb.

Glad to be here.

Re: Introductions

Who I am:

I'm a long time sysadmin and I don't know the exact timing anymore, but I was one of the earliest RHCE's though I let it lapse a long, long time ago. I currently work at Red Hat in IT supporting our email and other collaboration tools.

Where I'm based:

Raleigh, NC

 

The discipline I enjoy the most is:

I'm all about security and automation. I like making my life easier.

 

 My favorite toy as a kid:

I was all about action figures, mostly Star Wars, but micronauts were also common. Before that it was the large scale G.I. Joe's, Six Million Dollar Man, and Star Trek figures.

In My Spare Time, I . . .

I sing (karaoke, in my car, to my cat), I play guitar, I perform improv both shortform and longform, and I play D&D.

Re: Introductions

Hi folks, I am a Senior Consultant with Red Hat. I work with customers adopting our products, focusing on middleware, migration and development. While I work with Red Hat technologies every day, I would like to start giving back by contributing code upstream. That's a new world for me so I am hoping to find some guidance.

I am also a pilot, and I own a 1973 Cessna Cardinal 177RG that I love flying when I am not on the road for work.  I still can't figure out why Red Hat won't let me fly myself to customers, instead of using horrible commericial travel :-|

Highest Red Hat Certification:

Red Hat Certified Architect -  Level III

Re: Introductions

My Name is Mike Calizo. I am a Red Hat TAM currently based in New Zealand. I am actively contributing to the local community by co-organizing Ansible and Openshift meetup. The aim of this meetups is to collaborate and learn from each other.  Having to think topics to talk on these meetups sometimes is challenging. I am hoping that with this community, I can reach out to other members who do meetups and share ideas!

This is awesome and I am excited to be part of this community.
