The role of the SysAdmin is gaining in significance in every organization. Today SysAdmins contribute to important strategic discussions about their companies’ futures, and their work is very often a critical component in enabling organizational growth.
I am a systems administrator for the Collaborative Projects. My specialty is core systems. I'm the guy that builds virtual machines, maintains our authentication systems and does identity management (read FreeIPA).
As the IT Infrastructure Manager, I am responsible for the design and architecture of the systems that power our core programs, like our Events and Training websites, as well as collaboration platforms for our workgroups.
I maintain all of the Yocto Project's public facing infrastructure, including Yocto Autobuilders, which are based on Buildbot. I have odd specialties - such as storage and LDAP. I also used to be a Drupal developer, and will often dive in on CMS questions
I'm the primary administrator for the OpenDaylight Project's infrastructure and I do secondary administration for internal Linux Foundation systems and kernel.org. I'm a tertiary admin for any other Collaborative Projects.
I'm part of the team that provides infrastructure and services for Collaborative Projects. That translates into helping developers manage their code and communicate with each other when they may be widely dispersed.
