thanks for your reply, will have a read of the links you sent me.
As for my experience with Debian and Linux in general:
- I have been working in Europe, NZ and now in ASEAN as a virtualization architect / system engineer for the last 7 years. My area of expertise is the VMware product ecosystem and I am currently working on AWS certification as AWS has a two availability zones in Singapore where I currently reside.
- Started playing around with Debian in my home lab since 1999 but never got the chance to use it in a production environment so I kind of let the knowledge slip and focused more on learning virtualization but recently rekindled my interest in Debian when I bought a couple of Raspberry PI's. There are two reasons why I want to contribute to the Debian project:
a) To give something back to the community - Debian is an awesome distro and I always have had a lot of fun with it in my home lab
b) To learn and get better with Debian - how better to learn than to do it?
I would say my Linux skills are basic - I kinda know how things work together but I am definitely not an expert ..I have worked with OpenSuse, Fedora, CentOS and a few other distros.
I think this group would be best as Cloud and virtualization is my area of expertise. I also have a nice home lab here in Singapore with 3 hosts so I can do my own testing etc .
