Hello Everyone, I been into computers since I was a kid, I got interested in Hacking and Computer after watching the movie “War Games.” (This gives you an idea of my age.)
I built my first computer when I was 13 years old and managed my high computer lab.
I have worked as an IT professional for 15 years now working mostly as Windows (Wintel) Systems Administrator and sometimes I work as a network administrator managing Cisco switches, routers, and PIX/ASA and I currently work as a Applications Analyst for a staffing company in NYC Area.
The true I learned is professionals work on and develop their skills and push beyond the everyday routine, but just doing things to get the job done. I had forgotten what about the passion I had for computers, science, engineering, and technology before I started working as a professional.
So, in the last 2 years I come back to basics; I am rebuilding Computer/Hackers labs and built and new computer room and I working on new notebooks.
I am learning Linux Administration and DevOps engineering and improving and advancing my skills in Windows (Wintel) systems administration and network administration.
What is the difference between a professional and a non-professional? I use to think it was knowledge, but no is it is love and passion for what it is that you do.
Anyone can develop the skills and knowledge but can do have the passion and love to do what you do.
That is the real difference.
I currently updated my skills and knowledge in Linux Administration and I learning DevOps
My original goal when I became an IT Professional was to work my way through college and learn computer programming and game design, after graduating I wanted to create video games. Things didn’t work out that way.
