James Qualls, Linux freelance coderHire Now
Freelance Linux developer in Chandler, United States

JavaScript and Node.js Ninja, Python Enthusiast, and Distributed Systems Architect.

I have experience with many linux distributions and each of them have strengths and weaknesses. When I choose an OS for infrastructure I always choose for security, stability and support. In this case, I go with something like CentOS or Fedora. When it comes to development environment I think its a matter of personal preference. I want to lean more toward Fedora, but Ubuntu takes the cake with official packages from Spotify, Sublime Text and Slack it makes my life easier when choosing something other than OSX.

Senior Android Developer

I have been using Linux professionally and for my own projects for more than a decade now. Professionally I've worked with deployment of thin-clients and fat-clients solutions using LTSP and Ubuntu.

Personally, I typically use Arch Linux on my own computer for development and daily routine tasks.

I use technology to enrich people.

Started on Linux back in early 2000s. I've set up high availability systems and worked on web servers, database servers, DNS servers, mail servers, and more.

tekGoddess - Founder, Owner, Software & Analytics Engineer

I have been administering Ubuntu and Red Hat derivatives since 2004 and have been the resident goto gal for Linux since 2001, when a friend brought home a Red Hat Linux CD. A recent project involved decommissioning a $1.2M data center with 50+ linux servers where I designed bash scripting to manage Dell and HP RAIDs and perform DoD wipes on 300+ HDDs and SSDs. The scripting would also log progress and time to completion for efficiency.

Full Metal Ops guy with coding affinity, practising and evangelizing hate driven development.

I started working with Linux when I was 14 and never lost my fascination and appreciation for this operating system until now. During my work experience for several companies, I've learned a lot about many professional use cases from building custom load balancers, optimization for different workloads, a lot of hard and software tweaks and many insights up to patching the kernel and its modules for performance improvements.

I've been using and programming in Linux as long as I can remember. As a home user I've managed Linux systems for 25 years. Professionally, I led the charge to use Redhat Linux within various Army networks for data science and simulation, and even built massive Beowulf clusters for parallelization. Archpatent, Kailos Genetics, and almost every other project I've worked on have been based upon various linux flavors and cloud-hosted, usually on Amazon AWS, and occasionally on Azure, although bare metal isn't out of my wheelhouse either.

Freelance Linux developer in Dhaka, Bangladesh

Knowledge Engineer

I have been an Arch Linux developer for over 7 years and while I have not always been diligent in my voluntary and open-source duties and responsibilities, I have been applying my passion wherever I can. I have been maintaining Linux-based systems for as long as I have been working in the technology industry. The experience is mostly userspace, with exposure to lots of debugging in various languages, and a little bit of early userspace and kernel space work.

Murilo Polese, top Linux developerHire Now
Freelance Linux developer in London, United Kingdom

The only principle that doesn't inhibit progress is: Everything goes.

Linux has been my official operating system since I understood I could choose what to install on my family's computer when I was a teenager. All I had was a CD flashed with an already outdated Debian based distribution, without internet and nobody around me to help. From that I read every single line of man pages, offline documentation and sometimes source code to get access to IRC channels and then get other people help. On this journey I explored from the guts to the makeup of many linux distributions that were available on that time.
