Today I start an adventure in amazing technology opportunity at (www.dfheinz.com) utilizing open source Apache Software Foundation Projects. Having heard Daryl Heinz speak last fall I have spent the last 6 months training and preparing to be amazing ASF Administrator and Developer. With my experience in unix servers and administration, database and data automation, and technical problem solving skills I was able to jump right into the team. So far I have been working on cluster installs, documentation creation, dissecting the ASF Project Ambari, and leading implementation and integration teams into production. I am absolutely thrilled to be part of this team, and I am looking forward to what we will accomplish in 2018.
