I did not know much about Linux until a few years ago when I was working at on a contract to hire backup administration position and I was given the position after 3 months of working as an PC tech position. After about a year of working at this role, I found the backup admin role to be a very great role to be in and it had a lot of learning. I love this role because it was my first professional experience with using active directory and dealing with windows server. But the role require a person who was experience at both windows and linux, because the employer I was contracted out to was using the AVAMAR EMC cloud for backup and they wanted to have someone who had a linux background in this role.
Also While applying for a data center position it required me to have knowledge in linux
So in order to stay competitive in the IT world I started taking courses at Linux Academy
My first set of Linux projects was navigating around the OS, learning how to first build my first LAMP stack server
that had a website and is able to connect with my internal environment.
I still remember having so much trouble with using the terminal when I first started with linux.
But since I started in Linux a few years ago I was able work on plenty of Linux projects like
1. Building an LDAP server using open LDAP
2. Building a PXE server
3. web server using Cent OS Web panel
4. building and configuring zabbix
5. building and configuring openstack
While working the Linux operating system I have gained plenty experiences with unix and Mac OS systems
Happy to have the ability to be able to be diverse in many Operating Systems.
