openLARK - Linux Advanced Resources and Knowledge
This is just a static blog generated using Jekyll, where I write my Linux experiences, in the form of Linux Advanced Resources and Knowledge. Most of them will cover CentOS Linux and Debian GNU/Linux.
My name is Alexandru Calcatinge and I am an architect driven by the Free and Open Source Software philosophy. I am passionate about Linux System Administration, Docker containers, Kubernetes and OpenStack.
