Prerelease Version - Fedora Project

Prerelease Version - Fedora Project

So I am starting down the slippery slope that is testing. I will be spending as much time on the alpha's as I possibly can. Though I am painfully behind in my kernel knowledge as it is.

I am going to be an RHCA.

I will be working over the course of the next year to complete my Red Hat Certified Architect. I will post about the preparation I do and verify if it was enough. I mean beyond the years of practice I have had.

An Effector in the Autonomic Control Loop

Reading the IBM Press book on Autonomic Computing. I really want to think of myself as an extension of this process. Even though I work in a call center, there is data to be collected and monitored. and being a part of the Autonomic process means containing these elements in a describable and agreed upon format to complete more automated tasks.

I suppose that as the number of cores increases, so will the amount of logging and analysis. In an effort to better equip myself to manage that kind of effort, I have decided to return to school. Starting off with some simple, remedial work in calculus, then moving on to something bigger and better in the world of engineering.
