My name is Chris Egeland, and I'm a 21 year old computer enthusiast living in Akron,
Ohio USA. I've been interested in Linux for approximately 6-8 years now, and have
played around with a handful of distributions in my lifetime, varying from Slackware,
Knoppix, Debian, Ubuntu, Fedora, and others. In the past few years, I've volunteered
in varying capacities for small to mid-sized websites running varying distros of Linux.
I've done a little bit of work with Django, some pretty extensive work with phpBB,
MediaWiki, and a few other custom scripts that were developed for a specific site. So,
with the experience of working with these packages, I have learned PHP, MySQL, and a bit
of Python (something that I'm working on learning more extensively right now).
Outside of scripting and programming languages, I am pretty decent at writing
configuration files (I actually read documentation, believe it or not). I work regularly
with Apache Vhost configurations and httpd.conf configurations for a couple of sites. My
own webserver currently runs Apache, PHP, MySQL, and will probably be running a Django
site in the future once I am a little more familiar with Python.
I've got a bit of experience under my belt with administering Linux servers. Mostly
Debian, but with a recent project I have been working on, I have a bit of experience
working with Fedora as well.
I would love to help out however possible, and if there is room for me on the
Infrastructure team, I would gladly step up to the plate to learn whatever is necessary.
If anyone would like more information about myself, please feel free to ask.
I have regular internet access. I am based in the Eastern US timezone, and I have the
ability to be in contact with the team at almost any time (IRC/email anywhere if
Like I mentioned earlier, if you have any questions, please feel free to ask me.
I look forward to hearing back from everyone,
