Re: Introductions

Who I am:

I'm a  Berto short for (Alberto), a Senior Consultant with Red Hat specializing in deploying specializing Red Hat OpenStack.  I've been at Red Hat for a very short amount of time of approximately 6 months.  I am excited to be part of this community as I am a strong believer in sharing, mentoring, and fostering the growth of aspiring technical professionals as well as experienced professionals seeking to switch their disciplines.   I have been working exclusively with Linux since 2005 which contains a journey through a number of technologies and disciplines since then.   I have been focused on OpenStack as a practice since the Juno release and look towards to contribute as well as learn about any future topics relating to Linux, OpenStack, Ceph, IDM and Satellite. 

 

Where I'm based:

Tampa, FL

 

My workstation:

Lenovo Thinkpad | Fedora 27 

 

The discipline I enjoy the most is:

OpenStack of course as it is my primary discipline professionally,  however I am focused on Ceph heavily it is my next certificate of expertise as well as my chosen secondary discipline.  In general  I enjoy finding and fixing broken stuff, you know, just finding that needle in the haystack as they say.

 

Highest Red Hat Certification:

Not quite an RHCA yet, however I am one certificate of expertise away from that accomplishment. My current set of certifications look as the following:

RHCSA
RHCE
RHCSA in Red Hat OpenStack
RHCE in Red Hat OpenStack
RH Certificate of Expertise in Virtualization
RH Certificate of Expertise in Ansible

 

 What do I do a in my spare time ? 

What spare time ?   We have an 11 month old that takes all of spare time :-).  

 

I look towards contributing to the community and thank you for your introductions ( Yes, I read them all).

Who I am:

Steve Bonneville, designer for the RHEL, Management/Automation, and Storage courses.  I've been a production sysadmin, instructor, Red Hat consultant (briefly), course author, team manager, and course architect.  I've been kicking around Red Hat since 2000.

Where I'm based:

Minneapolis, Minnesota

My workstation:

Lenovo ThinkPad P50 running current Fedora is my main working environment.  Virtualization and the cloud have been such a major win for being able to spin up miniature environments for experimentation and testing.

The discipline I enjoy the most is:

System Administration, cruel mistress though she be.

My favorite course to teach:

I hate to pick favorites, but right now it'd be Ansible.  Ask me again in a few months!

My favorite toy as a kid:

I'm still a kid in my head.  Probably Lego, or Star Wars action figures.

In My Spare Time, I . . .

Bicycle, read a lot.  I'm another Kerbal Space Program fan, too, when I have the time.

Re: Introductions

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.
