    Open Source Tech Teacher

    Hello

    Thank you for taking an interest in my Bio and my courses

    I am an open source enthusiast and have been since the day I discovered SlackWare 2.0 with its 100 floppy disks.

    I love open source in any shape or form. Be it an operating system, cloud software, hardware, software tools, books, or even recipes.

    I am an avid reader of all things open source and I love to implement what I read.

    I have over 10 years experience in linux and and about a year and a half in openstack
    I have been a support engineer, cloud engineer, architect, team lead and supervisor. But what I enjoy the most is teaching about technology.

    My career has spanned the travel industry, the financial industry (including a Stock Exchange) and the telecommunication industry. The one thing I learned is that teaching others brings more rewards than you can believe.
