Hello To All.....
I am John Troan, with an IRC handle of ootbro. Bonus points to anyone who
can decode this one. :-D
I've earned a paycheck over the last twenty years in Lotus Domino/Notes,
working my way up to being a senior architect / sys admin / developer.
I've also been using Linux at home since the days of going to Best Buy,
etc., for the original shrink-wrapped versions of Red Hat -- and still have
my RH (not RHEL) version 4.x book from back then.
With the decline of Domino, I've decided to shift to the word of Penguin
Power (Linux) and picked up an RHCSA last year.
I have no specific Fedora work in mind yet**, but would like to gain more
Linux experience in a larger-scale environment than I have at home. (Home
is where my own domain runs on a small slew of VMs in my mini data center.)
**In looking at the list of FIGs, sysadmin-main is where I think my
interest best fits -- but I know I need to pick another group first.
I'm a programmer by degree and experience, but haven't yet picked up python
or enough shell scripting to churn out code. Both are on my list of things
If there's any FIG that needs a warm body, please contact me directly. (If
there's more than one, we'll start a bidding process for my time. :) )
While it'll take a little time to build up the specific tech skills, recent
experiences have shown that a lot of my past job and programming
experiences will transfer well.
If there's a general need, I've also got some capacity to build a couple of
VMs for testing and might be able to tweak the home network config a little
to allow access from the outside.
Thanks and I'll be in my first fedora-admin IRC meeting on Thursday......
