    Hello, everyone!

    My name is Elliot, an Email Customer Service Technician from the US! While my primary purpose for enrolling in the Linux Academy is for professional development and to gain the LPIC -1/ Linux+ and RHCSA certifications, I am also just incredibly interested in cloud technologies, what goes into them, and how to administer them!

    One random fact about me is that I love to cook (and almost went to culinary school for a concentration in French Cuisine)!

    It's very nice to meet you all, and I wish you good luck on your endeavors!

    I'm proud to call New Zealand my home. 
    I work as a Senior Systems Engineer. 
    This year Linux Academy is going to help me nail some AWS exams, brush up on my Unix, and bring it all together with some DevOps skills. The GCP Cloud Architect exam was on that list too, but LA has already helped me tick that off this year!
    When I'm not working/studying, you'll find me out jumping or looking after my horse.

    A hello to all my Linux Academy friends. :-)

    1) I am Rahul Janghel and I am from Pune, India.

    2) At present, I am working as Cloud Architect in Altimetrik.

    3) I have entered into 2018 with a lot of greediness. Looking forward to all 5 AWS certification within this year, and if this is not enough then hogging for Chef and Google cloud. Already on a quest for Docker, as of today completed 58% in Docker deep dive. let me stop myself. ;-P

    4) I am a father of a 7-year-old baby boy. Very soon we both will be going to a Guitar class. My baby has now started helping me cooking those dishes which I have been preparing for him for years. During October month last year, I did 4000 miles sole drive on my car to Kathmandu, it was a 34 days long trip and just last month had another trip to nearby state from my home city within India. It was 2700 miles long round journey travelled in 11 days, yup in my car only. :-)

    4) Well, that's a intriguing one.

    When I was 6, my teacher told to the class that she had had a intense and remarkable dream where one of the students in the class would suffer an accident in the school playground at that day.

    It was a full-time daycare, then, in the afternoon when we had no class, she went to the director to try to find another place to stay with the kids (instead of the playground where we usually went).

    Unfortunatelly, she couldn't find another place for us, and we had to go to the playground.

    When we got there, she had about 15 kids and asked us to not go to any toy in the park, and explained again about her dream to us.

    My younger sister, that always have been a quiet girl, all of sudden, among many other pesky kids, she decided to desobey the teacher and go to one of the huge Swing-Slide-Seesaw that had there, and a few seconds later, a friend of her went behind her.

    All other kids, ALL THE OTHERS, strangelly obeyed quietlly the teacher's wish, except my sister.

    Guess who the teacher asked to bring my sister back? Me.

    I remmember I didn't want to go, but my teacher asked me to bring my sister back.

    To shorten the story, she ended up hitting me hard in the stomach with the Swing-Slide-Seesaw - unnintentionally of course - and I had to go hospital.

    In the hospital they proceeded a laparoscopy and they told to my family that I had one of my kidneys completely ripped apart.


    Well, I know that a dream comming true is quite intriguing, but the most intriguing part came a few years later at the end of my puberty.

    my late grandmother, told me that something very akward happaned at that day.

    there was a little girl, same age as me, that was a long time already waiting for a kidney.

    She was in the room next to mine.

    A few hours after I went to the surgery, suddenlly, she went to the surgery as well because appeared a kidney to her.

    My accident was in the frontal part of my stomach, and the kidneys are in the back part of it.

    It was all strange, but beyond having lost my kidney, one of the most resentment I have is that I never could meet that girl.
