Hello Everyone, My name is Dominique Robinson and im excited to be joining the Red Hat Learning Community. All of this is very new to me, however I am trying to learn as much as possible. In my spare time I work as a Apple Support Technical Advisor and do alot of online gaming. I dont have any crazy set ups, however its not average. I have not taken any Red Hat courses, and im hoping this leads me down a very wide open path. Be blessed everyone.

Hello, My name is Nick. I'm a college student at Fayetteville Technical Community College. The class that I am taking isn't my first class that required me to use Linux but it's the first to go in depth with the "how"s and the "why"s. I'm hoping to become more proficient with Linux so that I can become more marketable to employers and gain more job security. I like out door things like hiking and running, it helps me balance all the time I spend sitting at my desk indoors.

Hi, My name is Joerg and I'm currently employed at the Bielefeld University in Germany as a Sysadmin.

I'm a proud member of the Red Hat Accelerators program and occasionally I do some writing for the Enable Sysadmin community.

This year I'm going to do the RH199 and the RHCSA exam. I'm hear to learn some best practice on how to prepare for courses and exams to get the most out of it.

Best regards,
Joerg

My name is Chris.

Ive worked as a Data Center tech working on Servers, IP appliances, and networking.  Ive always wanted to learn Linux.  Over the years ive started several times but found it "too hard".   

Covid hit last year and I was furloughed for 5 months beginning in mid March.  After about a month of playing videos games and tryng to figure out what I wanted to do until I was called back to work I decided to actually spend money on the best training I could find for Linux (at the price I could afford) and hit that as if it were my job.   I bought the official COMPTIA Linux+ study materials and went to work.   With my effort, quite a few Centos VMs , and the very good COMPTIA Linux+ material I was able to learn the material and pass the Linux+ cert.

Applied to dozens of admin positions and no responses...

In the mean time, ive been studying other material from other vendors and found it to be lacking.  Ive been eye balling the Red Hat courses for months but with a wife and child, I cant afford the price of the sub now, so my wife suggested I write RH Support and inquite about a Veterans discount.   She said "you never know..."

To my surpise RH Support pointed me to a US Veterans organization they (RH/IBM) support.  I signed up and was given access to the IBM SkillsBuild Platform (Which is Amazing, BTW) and through that, I am able to take RH 124 and RH134.

Thank you IBM and Red Hat.  I appreciate this opportunity you have provided me through your support for the Veteran community.
