About me

The name is Radka, but I'm known as Rhea on the interwebz. I began my career in game development, leaving my C++ code all over the Angry Birds, later on a little bit of C++ and Python in the World of Tanks engine, and a lot of C# in several other released titles and prototypes. I'm currently wearing my Red Hat though. As you could have guessed, I'm working on dotnet, where I'm responsible for the dotnet enablement in Fedora, and all things dotnet-QA related. I love C#, I find C++ a bit too slow to write, and dislike Python for its whitespace syntax... Hate me for it if you want :P

I'm that rare unicorn, a female programmer. And a gamer. I'm an active contributor not only to dev communities, but also to the gaming ones. Grill on the web!

I was familiar with Linux for a long time, and actively started using it somewhere around 2008. My first desktop distribution was Mandriva 2008, later it was Arch Linux and during university I switched to BackTrack, because I studied security and felt like I might as well play around a little bit out of the standard sandbox... As far as servers go my first server experience was with CentOS, then I went through ClearOS briefly, and ended up using unRAID on my home-server. It was an interesting project to set up all the things. After university I went more casual and after I sold my notebook I was left with only my Windows PC and the unRAID server for many years, however recently I went from unRAID to Fedora Server. By the way, Nextcloud is awesome! Pink servers are awesome as well! (Keyra)

One day I managed to inspire the desolate white space with the delicate C# letters of simplified artificial intelligence, also known as the Botwinder. A little open-source project, a Community Management bot for Discord. It was running on Raspberry Pi 3 in Raspbian Linux, however during the summer 2016 it became very popular and the poor tiny raspie was not enough anymore. And so we moved to a VPS (Fedora server,) together with its website and a bunch of other services. Eventually even that VPS (200$/month) was not enough and it wasn't economical anymore. It's running off of a beast in my living room now. Meet Keyra, water cooled dual xeon on 300/300 connection with isp failover, driven by the cute apu2c4 (with RHEL)

Oh and I'm running Fedora on my RedHat issue notebook. <3
