My name is Jacob Clark and I'm excited to get involved contributing to
the Infrastructure of Fedora!
I'm from the United Kingdom (GMT+ London time). I currently work for a
large retail company managing their web projects and infrastructure.
I have a solid understanding of emerging software development
techniques, client side frameworks, server side frameworks,
relational/non-relational database systems, continuous integration,
testing, version control & sysadmin unix/linux.
I'm competent in several programming languages, at both high level and
low level machine development, these languages include: Assembly
I'm experienced with Unix(-like) systems, DevOps platforms (Puppet,
Chef), Continuous Integration (Jenkins, Hudson), Firewalls (IPTables),
HTTP Servers (Nginx, Apache, Varnish) and various other platform
I'm joining because I believe contributing to an open source project
such as Fedora is not only rewarding, but also a fantastic way to gain
experience in working with a large scale collaborative project.
I'm able to put in a minimum of 5 and a maximum of 10 hours per week on Fedora.
