Hi my name is Matt,
I would like to start learning more about what
goes on behind the scenes and apply my current skills and gain some
new ones, hopefully in web application development. By day I work
in systems/network operations for a FOIP company in, mainly doing new
physical deployments and backend grunt work (backups,
monitoring(Nagios), vulnerability scanning(NMap, Nessus),
firefighting. I have a good working knowledge of BASH, Sed/Awk,
Python, C/C++, SQL, MediaWiki and some Django. I hope to put the
little Django experience I have to more use and expand upon it. By
night I am working on a small script/package collection for Windows
admins who refuse to actually use Windows or a heavyweight GUI for
that matter. My goal is a single package that will contain
everything most admins need including rdesktop, OpenConnect and
various scripts for parsing common windows log files into meaningful
noise. If I have to do something more than twice, I'm scripting it.
My IRC nick is urlugal and I hope to contribute to the website and
the wiki as my skills improve. For now I am ok with watching and
learning unless someone has a specific project I can get my feet wet
with. I couldn't find anything that looked relatively simple in the
Active Tickets list and didn't want to step on toes.
No worries. Do introduce yourself in irc and step in there with any
questions you might have.
Also, if you can make our meeting on thursday feel free to ask
questions there as well.
