System Integration testing; x86 servers, bios, RAID card firmware, Storage (DAS, SAN). Hardware, software, wetware. Certified tire kicker. If something didn’t look right, I reported, got told it was working as designed, and that’s why IBM hardware sucks.
None. In fact, I’m illiterate.
Buzz Word Bingo
Organized in order of strength and buzz-worthiness.
- Linux / Clustery stuff
- Fibre Channel
- DevOps nonsense
- ssh (OpenSSH)3
- You may or may not be surprised at how deeply employed bash is and how powerful it is (insert joke about writing a web browser in bash: Just type ‘firefox’ and bam, browser!). But seriously, I wrote an IRC chat bot in bash that would randomly google chat messages and then reply with a whole sentence found in the google search results.
- Yes, I can handle python just fine. Anyone with two neurons to rub together can write python. I don’t like writing python as I finding it unbearably unintersting. I don’t have a ton of experience with it because I avoid it whereever possible.
- It seems dumb to put SSH as a skill, but I have had many gainfully employed peers and techleads who barely know how to smash together an ssh command to get into another host. Nevermind key-management, port forwarding, configuring your client to actually be helpful, or advanced usage like using ssh for VPN.
