Matt Flyer: "I've been a Linux user for 15'ish odd years now, and really started getting into it with some laptops back in the days of Ubuntu 7 and Fedora 9. Over the years, I have run public facing servers for my own use, largely for email (postfix + dovecot), music streaming, and a local Xenforo forum. I also maintain a couple of Linux servers here at work that are used for a reporting web server.

I have experimented with and used a number of distributions including, Ubuntu, Centos, Arch, Gentoo, and Slackware. I am comfortable and fluent using a shell interface.

While I sometimes do require some tech support assistance, one of the things that this group excels at, I am used to solving problems in those instances where it doesn't "just work"."

After the election. Jonathan Mainguy will give a talk showing off tips and tricks in bash he has learned during his career.
