I am leaving behind a flaming career as Solaris and Sparc hardware take their place next to Digital Equipment and SGI. I held on as long as could but did not see any further career path and did not want to sell what was left of my soul to Oracle. 

I started down the Linux path two years ago but suffered a head injury that sidelined my training for quite some time. Now, I am starting over from RH124 and making sure what gaps in memory I do have get filled in. My goal is to eventually reach RHCA by around 2020-2021.

Who I am:

Robert Du Preez, I have been in IT administration for the past 10 years, the last 5 years being specifically Linux focused.

I got into Linux as I had to start supporting it, completed my RHCSA about 3 years ago and from that point I knew this is what I wanted to do with my career, I got a new position about 1 year ago where my focus is mainly RHEL, I am resposible for about 150+ RHEL servers, Satellite and IPA. Our Linux estate is growing at an alarming rate which is great news :)

Completed my RHCE about 2 months ago and I plan on starting my first RHCS exam next year, on my way to RHCA.

Where I'm based:

Cape Town, South Africa

My workstation:

Dell Latitude E5570 (Oh how I wish it was a macbook)

The discipline I enjoy the most is:

System Administration, Devops

My favorite toy as a kid:

Any gaming console or computer.

In My Spare Time, I . . .

Gaming on my PS4 and reading, currently eagerly waiting the release of RDR2.

Favorite book series will definately be The Kingkiller Chronicle by Patric Rothfuss.

 

Cheers!

Hi,

 

i am Martin (34) from Leipzig, Germany. I started with Computers at the age of 7 (286) and had so a good start with command line from MS-DOS, my first Linux i tried was a Slackware i guess and wiped with it the whole HDD in my parents PC and got one month computer ban :-)

I played along with many Distributions like Suse, Debian,CentOS, Ubuntu. I work as Master Engineer for Dell Software Support and do mainly VMWare and Linux (RHEL,SLES) Support for Enterprise Customers. Before that i worked in a Datacenter as Application Manager dealing with all pieces belonging to Datacenter-Business, Network, Computing and Storage.

I own a RHLS Subscription i am actively using to get RHCA. Currently i am RHCSA/RHCE on RHEL 6 and 7, RHCSA OpenStack and RHCS HA. I currently check which further Exams i will choose for going the RHCA Path and happy to join the Community along with other Individuals with same or similar development Plans.
