My name is Matt Ray and I recently joined Zenoss as the new Community Manager, based out of their new Austin office. Through the fortuitous mix of Barcamp ESM, a dash of big-company reality, and my side business going dormant, I’m now a happy member of the Zenoss community. I’m here to to help build, strengthen and support Zenoss’ community because they are the ones who use and help support, guide and write the software we provide as a company. I’ll be active in every community-facing aspect I can, and you’ll find me on the forums and mailing lists, IRC, blogs and email asking lots of questions and trying to find as many answers as I can. Thanks in advance for your assistance and patience.
While my last job was at one of “The Big 4″ as a Java developer, I’ve been involved with the Open Source community in various forms for over 10 years. I’ve worked in Systems Management, retail, distributed computing, banking, scientific and educational software over the years and I’ve been at several startups and founded a few myself. While I’m a fairly new to the Python community, I’ve coded in Java, Ruby, Perl, C, Lisp and many other languages professionally and for fun so I hope to get into the swing of things pretty fast.
I’ll be posting on topics of interest to the Zenoss user base, feel free to contact me with suggestions, feedback, questions or answers.
