About Me

Hi Folks,
I am Aditya Patawari, currently working as Cloud and Infrastructure Engineer at BrowserStack.com. Before this I was a Developer - Operations at Directi Internet Solutions. I play around with EL, Puppet, Nagios, Python, cloud both as a part of my work and as a hobby. Red Hat was my first distro when I was in class XI, after that I have tried a number of distros and finally I am stuck with fedora as my main OS. I love tux and kde. I am a die hard linux supporter and an open source developer.
