C/C++/Perl programmer, Linux/network admin.

Russia - Tests: 14

Over the last 10 years, I'm network administrator, architect and CIO in various hosting and ISP companies. Due this I have relatively good skills in Linux/BSD, virtualization, routing and shell/perl-scripting. My current targets are: -- programming in C, C++ and Perl -- building and managing networks -- building and managing virtual environments My previous professional bio can be divided into 4 independent parts: -- from 1990 to 1996 -- system programming for PCDOS (Assembler, C) -- from 1996 to 1999 -- HPC programming and teaching for MPI, PVM, HP/Convex and Parsytec -- from 1997 to 1998 -- programming for DSP controllers -- from 1999 to 2003 -- programming, administration and teaching for Lotus Notes and Domino. I prefer opensource whenever it's possible, but without zealotry. I think that the best opensource platform is Linux, but without zealotry too. In my opinion, the best Linux distro is Ubuntu LTS, but without any religious zealotry again.
