My name is Jared Smith.  I'm a big Linux geek.  I enjoy systems administration, relational databases, web programming, and VoIP.  I eat too many donuts, and don't blog as regularly as I should.  I've managed small systems and large-scale networks (over 6500 servers and 800 network devices).  As a college freshman, I once stuffed 26 jumbo marshmallows in my mouth to win a contest.  Oh, and I wrote a book for O'Reilly on Asterisk and the future of telephony.  For all the nitty gritty details, see http://www.jaredsmith.net/about/.  I currently work for Endurance International (the parent company of web hosting firms such as Bluehost and Host Gator) doing open source outreach and technical oversight.

== Education Background ==
 +
 +
Jared graduated in 2001 from Utah State University with a degree in Computer Engineering.
 +
 +
His fondest memory of his USU education involves a course taught by [http://digital.cs.usu.edu/~allan/ Professor Stephen J. Allan]:
 +
 +
"The class was something like "Unix Basics" or something boring like that, but the teacher made the assignments interesting, by forcing you to work with others in the class to solve a problem. A typical assignment might go something like this: 'Joe, you write an awk script to take this file I give you and transform it to look like this -- Susie, you take that, and use grep and sed to do this to it, Jared -- you take that and write a Perl script to do this...' and so on. So not only did we learn the tools, we had to communicate our expectations and assumptions with the other members of our team."

My name is Jared Smith. I'm a big Linux geek. I enjoy systems administration, relational databases, web programming, and VoIP. I eat too many donuts, and don't blog as regularly as I should. I've managed small systems and large-scale networks (over 6500 servers and 800 network devices). As a college freshman, I once stuffed 26 jumbo marshmallows in my mouth to win a contest. Oh, and I wrote a book for O'Reilly on Asterisk and the future of telephony. For all the nitty gritty details, see http://www.jaredsmith.net/about/. I currently work for Endurance International (the parent company of web hosting firms such as Bluehost and Host Gator) doing open source outreach and technical oversight.
