I am a highly motivated, results-driven IT professional with 10 years experience, a systems engineer who enjoys working on large-scale systems and challenging problems. I have experience with large number of servers (10.000+) connected via WAN and LAN, which makes it possible for cloud providers to deliver reliable services to customers

My current role is: systems engineer of the team which runs the websites.

On the top of usual systems engineering tasks, I like to develop softwares, my main language is Ruby (and I use Ruby on Rails of course :) ) but I can read and understand (and fix) Perl and Python, however it is not my favorite. I started to learn Erlang recently, which helps me understand the challenges what software developers face with distributed systems.

comment How to change the default user group's name in Active Directory?
I am just curious how could I avoid that this string shows up in my home directory on MacOS. Instead of having a name which has a backslash and a space in it I would like to see a single English word there. I am curious how can I achieve it. There might be a better way of assigning a group to the users and configure the system to use that group when you are creating a folder or a file in Unix/MacOS. Let me know if you have a good link what I should read about this.

Why would be this a bad idea?
