Adam John Miller
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.
You can find me on Twitter yelling into the void on occasion as @TheMaxamillion.
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 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 am currently a Red Hat Certified Engineer (RHCE) Certificate Number: 110-008-810
My Open Source Contributions
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/
