My name is Anshu Prateek (anshprat on freenode). I am from Bangalore,
India. I have been a Fedora user since Fedora Core 2/FC3. I have learnt
almost eveything thanks to Fedora (managing about a dozen nodes in college
lab and later hundreds to thousands of RHEL nodes at work). I would like to
contribute to the infrastructure team @ Fedora so that I can give back what
I have learnt and also to learn the latest in tech.
I had worked for Drupal as a part of GSOC (OpenID AX implementation) and
I report bugs for firefox nightly.
At my day work, I am a devops. Earlier I was with the search ops team at
Yahoo! and have a pretty good knowledge of large scale production
environments. Presently am also dabbling into release and QA environments.
I am good at bash and php with moderate skills at perl,python and mysql. I
have experience with svn and git as an end-user. I have been playing around
a bit with ansible. IPv6 is one of my fields of interest.
The GettingSponsored doc talks about picking only one FIG. I can contribute
the most with least onboarding time to sysadmin-web FIG. I can also
contribute to the sysadmin-hosted and sysadmin-tools FIG as required later
I will pitch in for a sponsorship request later but for the time being I
will like to work on these
I can contribute about 4 hours per week on the least. And more as it gets
I blog at http://hackalyst.info
. My name is unique enough that a decent
search engine will get you to me.
Looking forward to working with the Fedora community!
