I'm a newbie here. I was present at the last IRC infra meeting and
realised I had missed out on the introduction email, so here it is.
I work as a solaris technical support engineer and run a couple of
ubuntu boxes at home for filesharing stuff, web development and all
sorts of experiments.
I am experienced in troubleshooting hardware and software issues.
I've got web development experience with php/mysql/css/js/html so I
could lend a hand also to websites issues as well, but it's not my
priority. I would like to focus on the sysadmin side of the project.
I am not experienced in dealing with performance tuning of systems and
applications or implementing large scale solutions and that is something
I would like to improve on in the future. Working in such large
environments and being able to propose/implement changes is totally new.
Also, my knowledge of Python is close to null, but I've got enough
experience in php/java to, at least, understand what's going on.
So, to summarize, my objectives are:
- learning python
- improving knowledge of fedora/red hat
- develop, implement, maintain services and applications on a large
- install/setup servers
What I can offer:
- technical knowledge for services such as nfs, ssh, http...
- troubleshooting experience
- web development experience (backend and frontend)
But first things first: I need to get familiar with your environment.
I don't expect to work more than a few hours a week (5-6), and I cannot
be present at all the meetings.
I can see that there are a few tickets that can interest me, so I'll get
on them soon enough.
Thank you for reading, the email was probably a tad too long :)
