Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"Once again we're back for another week, which means it's
another Wednesday where we feature someone in the Ubuntu community
and ask them a few questions. This week we've got the pleasure of
talking to Chris Johnston; Ubuntu Beginners Team and Classroom all
"Chris is an awesome dude who lives in Orlando, Florida. Outside
of Ubuntu he fights fires and helps the injured as a Firefighter
Paramedic (awesome in it's own right!) but because we're OMG!
Ubuntu! and not OMG! Firefighter Paramedics! we're going to be
focusing on his involvement in Ubuntu. =P
"Chris started using Ubuntu on his server back in 2007 with
Ubuntu Server 7.10. After realising the awesomeness of Ubuntu, he
began using it on his desktop and laptop in 2008 with the Hardy
Heron. Last year he was awarded Ubuntu Membership status for his
continued work in the Ubuntu Beginners Team, Ubuntu Classroom and
his LoCo in Flordia.
"He's in IRC quite often and very approachable. Chris has done
some fantastic work on ClassBot with Nathan Handler for the Ubuntu
classroom, which we had a chance to try out in Ubuntu Manual's 48
hours of Learning event and also during Opportunistic Developer
Week not that long ago."
