Ingram Content Group
Linux System Administrator
Jim has been a System Administrator for over ten years, currently with Ingram Content Group and previously with Dave Ramsey's company, both in the Nashville area. He builds and maintains Unix/Linux environments (with a propensity for FreeBSD) for high-traffic web sites and applications, focusing on security and reliability. In addition to system administration, Jim also has a development background, including eight years of software engineering at Verizon before moving to full-time systems work. His distinctive approach to projects and issues from an administration viewpoint, backed by development expertise ("OpsDev"), has allowed Jim to uniquely contribute to several development-centered ("DevOps") workplaces and open source projects. He has made contributions of varying degrees to the following communities: Apache httpd, Tomcat, FreeBSD, PFSense, Ansible, and Drupal, among others.
