=== 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.

=== Fedora Engineering ===
 +
Starting in April 2015, I was a member of the [[Fedora_Engineering | Fedora Engineering]] team mostly focusing on [[ReleaseEngineering| Fedora Release Engineering]] tooling but helping anywhere I am able as I am able.
  
=== My Relation to debian GNU/Linux ===
+
=== OpenShift Origin ===
 +
From April 2012 to April 2015 I was the Release Engineer for OpenShift Online at Red Hat. As a fan of Open Source and of OpenShift, I would love to help bring OpenShift Origin (the upstream to OpenShift Online) to as many users and developers within the community in any way I can, and will continue to strive towards that goal.
  
There is a similar wiki page that belongs to me located [http://wiki.debian.org/AdamMiller here] that is also no longer "maintained". <s>I do still run debian on some machines as well as fedora on others.</s> 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.

There is a similar wiki of mine located [http://wiki.ubuntu.com/AdamMiller here] that is no longer "maintained." It includes all of my relation to the Xubuntu project, I have left the project for the most part due to conflict of interest. <s>Since the time I left the project Canonical has proven itself to have questionable motives and a lack of presence in upstream development. I have no remorse for my leaving of the project and I would like all those who feel the need to tell me I'm wrong about them to please see [http://www.kroah.com/log/linux/lpc_2008_keynote.html slides] and [http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=3385088017824733336# video] that will reaffirm half of my claim where as the other half can be found all over the net in random blogs and news feeds. I am amazed every time I see an Ubuntu powered machine successfully make it from POST to GDM and I feel for the Xubuntu project for having to rely on such an organization as Canonical.</s>

=== KDE e.V. Join the Game ===
  
I have come a recent realization that the distro wars are pointless and I'm tired of being a part of them. I use what I like and I am part of the community of my selection and I urge others to do the same.

I am currently a supporter of KDE e.V.'s Join the Game program and I encourage others to join in as well.

About me

I'm a Husband, Father, Ansible Developer, Pythonista, Fedora Community Member, Linux nerd, Hatter, Texan, Geek, Published Author, and a Public Speaker.

I'm an Ansible upstream contributing developer and a member of the Ansible Engineering Team at Red Hat.

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 served as an elected member of the Fedora Engineering Steering Committee from December of 2015 through December of 2018.

You can find me on Twitter yelling into the void on occasion as @TheMaxamillion.

Skill Set

I am comfortable coding in Python, Ruby, bash shell (3.0+), POSIX sh and I know my way around Go and Node.js but not nearly well enough to claim I'm "fluent" in either. 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 well versed in Ansible, using it for automating but also developing against it's code base and developing plugins/modules.

I am an experienced RPM Packager, Fedora Packager, Fedora Proven Packager, and the original Author of RPM Packaging Guide.

I have professional experience with debian and Fedora/RHEL/CentOS server administration (in an array of implementations) and general (desktop/laptop) use.

I am currently a Red Hat Certified Professional, Certificate Number: 110-008-810

Ansible Engineering

Since December 2017, I have been a member of the Ansible Core Engineering Team focusing on upstream development of various Ansible related code and content.

Fedora Engineering

Starting in April 2015, I was a member of the Fedora Engineering team mostly focusing on Fedora Release Engineering tooling but helping anywhere I am able as I am able.

OpenShift Origin

From April 2012 to April 2015 I was the Release Engineer for OpenShift Online at Red Hat. As a fan of Open Source and of OpenShift, I would love to help bring OpenShift Origin (the upstream to OpenShift Online) 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 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.

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 others to join in as well. http://jointhegame.kde.org/

Support & Bug Triage

  • Tech support in #fedora, #rhel, and #epel on irc.freenode.net
  • Active in bugzilla

Development

Features/Changes

Other

Plans & Goals

I hope to continue to contribute to open source as a whole by developing custom applications, patching and packaging, giving support on irc support channels, writing wiki pages and documentation, and so much more.
