Until I was 19, I had only worked with Windows OS and didn't know there was any other Operating Systems, until I was working on a Television program that talked about e-Government. In this TV program, we interviewed university professors, and I first heard about Linux.
Wow Linux, Open Source OS! What is this?
I searched the internet, got a Linux training class and went to sign up. Because I was a management student, not a computer, so not allowed to sit in the classroom and said that you had to take some courses like Programming, Data Structure, Assembly and Network.
I didn't want to back down, Linux was very appealing to me, so I started reading all the prerequisites. I went back to the academy for the Linux training course, this time ready to pass all the tests and finish the RHCE successfully.
Day by day, I became more interested in Linux and programming, deploying services and infrastructure, because I could find solutions to new needs and challenges, so I gave up the university of management to focus more on Linux.
This is where I started my professional career with Linux.
I've been working on Linux for over 12 years now, and every day I enjoy working with Linux more and more. Over the years I've done a variety of projects and learned a lot, worked with different teams as a Linux System Administrator, Infrastructure Manager, DevOps Engineer and Team Leader. I have been responsible for designing services and infrastructure in several large projects.
One of the projects I was responsible for designing and implementing the infrastructure involved delivering messaging services to more than 20 Million users, it was a great challenge to me to come up with a creative solution and was able to deliver the infrastructure that was 1.2 Million requests per second and 360 Gbps Internet bandwidth. In this project, I learned a lot, like use Ansible for Automation or Zero Provisioning for Mass Deployment and creating a maintenance process for over 2000 servers.
Over the past 3 years, I've been working more with Docker and trying to work as a DevOps Engineer, so I started studying and working with Kubernetes.
The Information Technology world is so widespread and every day gives me a new opportunity to learn, help me meet new people and collaborate with them, and I can face new challenges every day, so I love IT and strive to learn new content and find solutions to the challenges ahead.
In addition to Linux, I'm still interested in studying psychology and management, and I've read many books over the years and hope to be successful in team leadership.
