After learning a bit of programming, I was attracted by the networking world. I got from petty Pascal/C++ projects through web development using PHP and later Python, to years of freelancing work with most of the projects in server administration, network equipment configuration and a bit of programming. I was active in the community, wrote articles and spoke at conferences which finally led to my joining Red Hat in May 2012 to work on NetworkManager. I was already a Fedora user and package maintainer at that time. From August 2013 to November 2016 I was working on various network related packages and projects.
