I am a Linux system administrator with a year and counting experience with beginners level python programming language. Also, I have taken a course on AWS cloud practitioner essentials. I am a hard and smart worker, a team player and a fast learner as my resume can testify that. My work interest is to do better and eventually be a senior system architect.
