Re: Introductions

I have worked as a consultant and instructor for almost 20 years. (wow that's been a long time)

My major experience is focused on Java but I am also a .NET platform and Ruby programmer. Lately, I have been working pretty closely with DevOps concepts and tools.

I am developing my Ansible skills to make myself more productive.

My favorite Red Hat courses are all related to OpenShift and development. 

A fun fact: I have worked for a company that developed Smalltalk systems and they created a tool to "teleport" the application to run on Java.

Re: Introductions

I'm a sysadmin in Wilmington, North Carolina. I recently moved here to take a job as an engineer building a mid-sized company's devops pipeline. It's exactly the next step in my career that I had been hoping for.

I use AWS, Ansible, and OpenShift every day, as well as GitLab, vim, Firefox, and other essentials. Right now I'm trying to get the hang of the dot language so I can graph our AWS infrastructure.

I've recently discovered the joy of the i3 window manager. I love having my windows line up in nice little tiles. I'm actually running i3wm on Mate with Ubuntu 16.

Hey,

I'm a Support Analyst looking for up my career with Red Hat certifications. I started to work with Linux two years ago and I'm loving it.

I live in Brazil and I like to play and compose some music.

I hope to help and learn here in the community.

Regards.

Re: Introductions

Good evening; I had to drop the Red Hat System Adm 1 class! I just couldn't
get it...on all the assignments, I couldn't get past the step when you
enter "i" and go into the vim.
I"ll take it at the end or sometime by itself, when that's all I have to
concentrate on.

Re: Introductions

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

Sports? I was pretty good at table tennis in my day, and I enjoy clay and target shooting.

Re: Introductions

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.
