Freelance Linux developer in Dhaka, Bangladesh

Knowledge Engineer

I have been an Arch Linux developer for over 7 years and while I have not always been diligent in my voluntary and open-source duties and responsibilities, I have been applying my passion wherever I can. I have been maintaining Linux-based systems for as long as I have been working in the technology industry. The experience is mostly userspace, with exposure to lots of debugging in various languages, and a little bit of early userspace and kernel space work.

Full stack Ruby on Rails Developer and AWS Cloud Architect

I've been using and programming in Linux as long as I can remember. As a home user I've managed Linux systems for 25 years. Professionally, I led the charge to use Redhat Linux within various Army networks for data science and simulation, and even built massive private blockchain networks. Archpatent, Kailos Genetics, and almost every other project I've worked on have been based upon various linux flavors and cloud-hosted, usually on Amazon AWS, and occasionally on Azure, although bare metal isn't out of my wheelhouse either.

I have been using Linux professionally and for my own projects for more than a decade now. Professionally I've worked with deployment of thin-clients and fat-clients solutions using LTSP and Ubuntu.

I use technology to enrich people.

Started on Linux back in early 2000s. I've set up high availability systems and worked on web servers, database servers, DNS servers, mail servers, and more. I've worked on projects that made dollars every minute and uptime was critical. My server distro of choice is Debian, or Ubuntu, although I've worked on RedHat and CentOS too.

Polyglot developer with an obsession for modularity

I'm no kernel hacker, but I do know my way around.

Murilo Polese, top Linux developerHire Now
Freelance Linux developer in London, United Kingdom

The only principle that doesn't inhibit progress is: Everything goes.

Linux has been my official operating system since I understood I could choose what to install on my family's computer when I was a teenager. All I had was a CD flashed with an already outdated Debian based distribution, without internet and nobody around me to help. From that I read every single line of man pages, offline documentation and sometimes source code to get access to IRC channels and then get other people help. On this journey I explored from the guts to the makeup of many linux distributions that were available on that time.

The article was on the site for a long time and got many 4-star ratings. Some organizations have used the article as the basis for creating production utilities.

Charlton Wilbur, Linux software engineerHire Now
Freelance Linux developer in Spofford, United States

Software Engineer, Teacher, Explainer and De-Mystifier

I've been using Linux nearly continuously since I first installed the Softlanding distribution with version 0.97 (if I remember correctly) -- it came on 30 or so 3.5" floppy disks, as CD-ROM based distributions were still in the near future. (And when I haven't been using Linux as a primary or near-primary system, I've been using OpenBSD, FreeBSD, or OS X -- all Unix under the hood even if not Linux.)
