About me

I am an IBMer working on Platforms and Infrastructure for Deep Learning. I have worked for 17 years in the areas of HPC, Cloud, Machine Learning and High Performance Data Analytics.

My experience with FOSS begins in 1996 when I first installed Slackware on my desktop and then Red Hat Linux until 2003.. After some distro-hopping I concluded that Fedora is the distro to use for both ideological(freedom!) and practical reasons (bleeding edge). I have been using Fedora as my OS since March 2004.
