I've been a GNU/Linux user since Red Hat Linux 7.
I have an Undergraduate Degree in Computer Science and a Masters of Science in Information Assurance and Security. My main goal within the Open Source community is to contribute in any way that I am able in order to enhance FOSS.
I am comfortable coding in Python, bash (3.0+) and I have some experience with Ada83, Java, C, C++ but am horridly out of practice. I know some Intel-x86 and MIPS assembly but prefer to not ever code in either. I'm always dabbling in different programming languages because I find them fascinating but haven't found another language in my dabbling that I feel comfortable enough with to claim as a "skill".
I am a fedora packager, so I guess I would consider "packaging RPMs" one of my skills. Though I would like to thank all the developers involved in making the build environment because the incredible tools available really do make packaging a breeze.
Experience with debian and Fedora/RHEL/CentOS server administration (in an array of implementations) and general (desktop) use.
I have my RHCE on RHEL6. Certificate Number: 110-008-810
My Open Source Contributions
I am currently the Release Engineer for OpenShift at Red Hat. I would love to help bring OpenShift Origin to as many users and developers within the community in any way I can, and will continue to strive towards that goal.
My Relation to the Fedora Project
I have found my way to Fedora after an eight year journey of using other distributions and have now made myself a home. I am currently a Fedora packager and plan to continue this for the foreseeable future. I still enjoy playing around with other distros but prefer to develop/package for Fedora as this project is the one that puts forth my own personal beliefs in software freedom as well as keeping up with wonderful quality assurance, a helpful community, inspiring innovation, and an over all solid distribution.
I also am a RHEL administrator by profession which is what brought me to the Fedora project to begin with.
My Relation to debian GNU/Linux
There is a similar wiki page that belongs to me located here that is also no longer "maintained".
I do still run debian on some machines as well as fedora on others. I enjoy both linux distros in their own respect and have in the past contributed to debian in various ways but will probably stop doing so in the future. I still enjoy debian in many ways but as my future takes me further into the professional market, I have become more focused on RedHat/Fedora oriented undertakings.
UPDATE: I said goodbye to my last remaining debian install, I want to leave this listing because I do still respect the project in a big way but my future is with fedora.
UPDATE: I said hello to a new Debian machine, I've re-embraced my enjoyment of different distributions for their respective technologies, innovations, and contributions to the open source world.
My Relation to Xubuntu
There is a similar wiki of mine located here that is no longer "maintained."
The Gnome Project
I am currently a Friend of Gnome and I encourage others to join in as well. http://www.gnome.org/friends/
KDE e.V. Join the Game
I am currently a supporter of KDE e.V.'s Join the Game program and I encourage other to join in as well. http://jointhegame.kde.org/
