I've been following this email list for a couple of months. It's about
time, I think, to take the plunge and join the apprentices group if
possible. So here I go.
For the sake of clarity, I'll use the structure suggested in the first-
1. Name: Juan Jimenez-Anca
2. Time Zone / Country: UTC UK(London)
3. Basic skills and experiences
For the past year and a half I have been developing a small project for
open books. In the meantime, I have learned Linux systems
administration to be able to set up and manage various types of
servers: web, mail, monitoring, database, etc.
In regards to knowledge, I can write code in Python and JS, and basic
scripts in bash. I'm also fairly proficient with ansible and git.
4. Why you're joining
I am an advocate of free culture in general. My background up until a
couple of years ago was mainly as an academic in Humanities subjects.
However, after starting my project on open books I've been learning a
lot about how open source works. So far I've been in the receiving end,
and I would like to contribute too. I use Fedora and CentOS, so joining
the Fedora Projects feels like a logical step forward.
5. What you're looking to do (be specific)
I am aware there is an apprentices day next week. So, ideally, I'd like
to be present that day and get acquainted with areas of possible work.
As far as I know, ansible has been mentioned for the day. I'm quite
happy to start writing playbooks for any task that requires them.
More generally, I would also like to contribute to any monitoring,
deployment, etc. that may be necessary.
6. How much time you can contribute (usually hours per week)
About one morning/afternoon a week
