Hello everyone, my name is Ricky Elrod, and I am looking to
participate in an open source project that allows me to use my knowledge of networking and
programming, and is a good community to work with. After doing some reading, the fedora
infrastructure team looks like the place for me. I am a senior in high school, and already
registered at a local university (The University of Akron) to major in Computer Science in
Fall of this year (immediately after high school).
In high school, I participated in a Cisco class which gave me knowledge of networking
concepts, such as dealing with Cisco-specific technologies, along with general networking,
such as subnetting. In the programming world, I know quite a few scripting languages, such
as PHP, Python, and Perl, and I am currently learning my first compiled language, Java. In
the future I plan on learning C and C++, as time permits. I am active on IRC under the
nick CodeBlock, on freenode and a few other networks, such as slashnet, and a small
network I help administrate, Ninthbit.
mmcgrath is willing to sponsor me, after I spoke to him on IRC. He listed a few FIGs in
need of help, and I would like to join sysadmin-hosted, and help out with fedorahosted.
Any other questions, just ask! I look forward to working with everyone.
Welcome aboard! I'm ababdger1999 on freenode if you need any help with
python coding or packaging I can help or at least, point you towards
a better resource :-)
