  1. Hey Chris and Wes!
  3. I have a career oriented question for you, but it's not the typical question.
  5. I've moved up in my career from typical help desk and support roles, to sysadmin, to more of a developer support/devops role. I know my way around AWS, Tomcat, Apache, Nginx, Java, Python, and a few other tools and languages. However, when trying to dive into the system side of things, I get a bit lost and don't know where to begin. Some examples include OpenStack, compiling my own Kernel (and using it!), Terraform, and LXC.
  7. What resources would you recommend for diving deep and learning this material? I know Linux Academy has a ton of courses on OpenStack, which I plan on checking out, but the OpenStack documentation seems... Scattered? I don't know how to word it. It seems very detailed, if not overly verbose? Also, another side note, I know that Docker has a great platform for hosting and running Linux containers, but as with AWS to OpenStack, I want to really understand infrastructure as well as containers with LXC.
  9. The answer may be "Just sit down and read it! If you don't understand it, re read it!" If so, I accept that ;P I figured I'd reach out to the best in the biz before I get lost in the .txt of documentation.
  11. Sorry for the long letter, thank you so much for your time. I understand if you can't answer this on the show, so I gave an e-mail that you can spam resources my way if you guys find the time.
  13. I'm sure you hear this a lot, but your network has done so much to boost my enthusiasm and spring my career to new heights. I am forever in your debt.
