Re: Introduce yourself to the Community

Hi.

I'm Tom. 

I live in NC where I am a second year student at a community college.

I'm retired military and chose Network Management as a second career.

I really enjoy working with Redhat (and Centos) and plan on becoming very proficient over the next year.

Re: Introduce yourself to the Community

Hello everyone. I feel pretty intimidated by a lot of the folks certifications/designations and engineering backgrounds but here we go. . .

I'm currently a student, living in North Carolina. I have a semester left before I obtain my CIT with a concentration in Network Mgmt. I'm currently taking a RedHat Sys Admin course and enjoying it (more than my Python Programming class, tbh). For the first part of my professional/work existence, I was an admin assistant and in sales; corporate group sales manager for a hotel and a variety of admin assistant jobs prior to that. 

I've got years of IT experience under my belt assisting with website redesigns, data migration, hardware/software implementation and deployment but those were all as an admin assistant. Along the way, I realized that being an assistant only got me to a certain point up the ladder, and while sales can be lucrative--I wasn't passionate about "selling" and I'm not aggressive either. 

What I'm passionate about is helping people become more productive. I want to make sure the tools they require to get a job done, works, and to offer them solutions on how to obtain information quickly and how to work efficiently and effectively. 

Anyway, I'll find my niche soon enough. . .I'm excited for this next chapter in my professional life.

Re: Introduce yourself to the Community

Hello! My name is Gavin Stec and I'm a Junior-year cybersecurity student at DePaul University - and a newly selected Red Hat Student Ambassador. I am originally from Rockford, IL and recently permanently relocated to Chicago, IL to pursue education and professional experience.

As a student at DePaul University, I have maintained a 4.0 GPA, held a leadership position on DePaul's highly competitive cybersecuity club, the Security Daemons, and have studied application, network and host based security quite significantly both in and out of the classroom. My professional experience is largely in software microservice development and application security implementation. Ultimately, I spend a significant amount of my time on application development, Linux and Windows Server administration and cybersecurity competitions.

I hope, through an association with Red Hat, I can bring unique exposure to Red Hat's exceptional development technologies, such as OpenShift and RHEL, and learn about and advocate for secure methods of containerized application development. I am quite excited for this opportunity to work with Red Hat and I hope to bring incredible mutual benefit for both Red Hat and my peers at DePaul University.

 

Gavin

Re: Introduce yourself to the Community

Hello Everyone,

     My name is Tiffany Davis. I recently obtained my Bachelor's Degree in Intelligence this past year and I am working on a few additional cybersecurity certifications at my local community college in N.C. While I was obtaining my bachelor's I concentrated on courses tailored specifically to cyber. Hence the reason, I am pursuing these additional certifications. I am a bit nervous about to expect, especially considering the fact that the majority of the people throughout the RHLC seem to have a great deal of experience in all things cyber.

Prior to the Linux current course, I am enrolled in this semester, the only other interaction I have had with Red-Hat was attending an informational briefing at my community college in November. Nonetheless, I am looking forward to interacting with everyone.
