I have been part of this mailing list for a while now and I don't believe I ever got
around to introducing myself, so I'm going to. Please keep in mind that I am not a
writer, and even if I was, talking about myself would not be my specialty.
I was first introduced to Linux over nine years ago(RHL), and have been using it as a
primary OS for about three years now. I have tried 60 or so flavors and Fedora is by far
one of my favorites and most fun to mess with.
My skills include Python, Bash scripting, MySQL and many of the other DB apps, HTML, as
well as a bit of C++. I would classify my Python and Bash as intermediate, I am no guru or
wizard, but I continuously work on it. I also have and fiddle with a couple clusters of
PCs setup as servers, mostly just to gain the experience of configuring and maintaining
it, although i would imagine it's vastly easier than working with a whole server farm
or even just a rack.
I am in academia for CS (more specifically Network and Databases at the moment) and about
to have my Associates degree. My plan is to continue on and get my Ph.D, but that's a
whole other story.
My reason/motivation to be part of and involved in the Fedora community is to lend my
skills and assistance wherever they may be needed and useful, possibly increase my skill
set, learn more about Fedora and Linux in general(it appears almost infinite what can be
done with it), just pure interest in how everything (Fedora and the community) works, and
a belief in the Open Source philosophy.
If there is anything that somebody believes I could/should help with or work on or just
should know then please point me in the right direction. Also, let me know if I am being
too long-winded.I hangout and/or dwell on IRC as romansb.
