Hi, my name is Chad Sheets.
This blog is a mixture of notes to myself, collections of my photos and expositions of my ongoing projects. The internet can be a noisy place and I try not to contribute unnecessarily.
Why publish a blog?
Professionals posting their techniques, tips and solutions helped me develop and grow as a programmer and Linux administrator. With this blog I hope to give back to the community. It's also very convienient to have one place to gather my notes.
What's your background in technology?
I earned a B.S. in Electrical Engineering from the University of Dayton in 2009. My fascination with technology predates the degree by many years.
My first CLI experience involved navigating MS-DOS on an outdated workstation to launch Wacky Wheels.
... those were the days ...
I used RedHat / Fedora casually in the early 2000s, Arch during and shortly after college and Debian / Ubuntu ever since.
(No love lost for Arch. My professional life became very time consuming and I no longer had time for maintenance and configuration)
What's your professional background?
After university I spent 7 years working for Schlumberger as a Wireline engineer.
SLB offered an intense petroleum industry training program, world-class leadership development and as much responsibility as you could handle. I personally grew more as a professional working for Schlumberger than I thought possible.
What are you doing today?
