About Me

Who am I, and what do I do?

My name is Wayman Smith, spelled like it’s pronounced; if we ever meet in person. I am an avid user of Linux and Open Source since 2003. Like many, I was introduced to Linux in Computer Science class as an undergrad. My interest was piqued at that point and I went on to get my first job as a Linux System Administrator with Lockheed Martin. From there I have several roles using Linux, the most standout position being a Consultant with Red Hat. I enjoy Linux and its technologies both inside of work and outside.

What else should I know about you?

Some of my accomplishments include being Red Hat Certified Architect (RHSA) certified, Puppet Certified Professional, and author of Clustered Satellite whitepaper.  More detailed information about my career can be found here and here. Some Linux related info about me:

My favorite Linux distro is Gentoo

My most used Linux distro is Fedora

Right now, I’m really interested in Docker, OpenStack, OpenShift

Why did you start this site?

I started a site to serve as a landing place for my career related information, as well as my thoughts, ideas, and projects related to Linux and Open Source Technology.

Another reason for starting this site, is to increase my visibility in the realm of Linux and Open Source technology. One fact of today is that information can be easily obtained from many sources. No longer will handing over a printed resume be enough to convey career skills and interests. We are all searchable, and this site aims to give all those interested a more up to date view of who I am and what I’m interested in.
