My Experience with:

Server Admin (Ubuntu)

I’ve used Linux personally and on the job early on in my career, and I’ve always been curious about what’s going on in the GNU/Linux world. Lately I’ve been doing all of the server administration for this website, starting with an empty Ubuntu installation on Digital Ocean.
