This being my first post I figure I should say why I am here. First and foremost it is about sharing information and empowering others. I believe the best way to do that is through the use of open communication, sharing of knowledge and liberal use of Open Source technologies. I work at Red Hat and have the opportunity to see not only the cutting edge of cloud and application technologies, but also have an obligation to do my part to make the future just a little bit better. In short the goal is to document anything that I wish I could have told a previous version of myself and that could possibly help others.
