Who I am

I started with UNIX is 1993, using Solaris, and then moved to Linux in 1997 using Slackware, Red Hat, and now Ubuntu. I began Linux kernel development in 2001, in the USB subsystem, and have contributed since then in various kernel subsystems including memory management, networking, and crypto.

My Ubuntu story

I joined Canonical in 2015 as part of the Support and Technical Services Engineering team, and have been working on problems that reach into many different parts of Ubuntu; the kernel, networking, multipath, udev, and more. I enjoy digging deep into technical details and solving problems.

Areas of work

Most of my work is done in the kernel, both upstream and in Ubuntu's branches. However, I also make fixes to various packages as I, or Canonical customers or public Ubuntu users, find bugs in them that I am in a position to fix.

Things I could do better

Time management is difficult for everyone, as we never have enough time to complete everything we want to do. I hope to manage my time better, balancing work and family while also continuing to contribute upstream.

Plans for the future

Keep improving Ubuntu and Linux in general!

What I like least in Ubuntu

Documentation is sometimes hard to come by, or out of date.

I have had the privilege of working with Dan for the past year and I know him as a knowledgable, thorough and steady colleague. He has made many contributions to Ubuntu and it would be a great win for all of us to have Dan approved as a SRU Developer. -- fnordahl 2017-09-06 15:56:08

General feedback

I have sponsored a few packages from Dan over the year and the ones I have seen were high quality. Dan has the desire to do things right and he always accept constructive comments/feedbacks with a positive attitude.

He understands the principles of debian packaging and the SRU process and he is not afraid to ask questions when needed. As a SRU uploader, it is always a pleasure to sponsor a patch from Dan, and I think he would be a great addition to the SRU uploader launchpad team.

Specific Experiences of working together

Dan is a colleague and I work with him for the past 2 years now. Dan's role is to drive bugs into resolution by troubleshooting, fixing bugs, providing guidance & workarounds, for different areas of expertise which may cover areas such as: kernel, drivers, virtualization, network, cloud, storage setups, ... and physical/virtual environment orchestration.

Areas of Improvement

Nothing I can think of...
