Hi everyone!


I'm Johnathan, and live in Stockholm, Sweden (Not far from Patrik)

My professional interest lies mainly with Check Point.


My favorite animal from the perspective of the most interesting one would be the Platypus. Did you know that it is the only mammal that lays eggs? And one of only two mammals that arepoisonous. And then we haven't even mentioned that it has the mouth of a duck, and the tail of a beaver. Indeed a special animal.


In my spare time I like to do rock climbing and I often which I had more time to play an ancient chinese board game called "Go"

Hello, I was a network architect for a couple of Fortune 150 companies over the past 20+ years. Now a senior consultant at a VAR in Southern California. Have worked the entire stack from on premise servers, networking, security, etc. and into the cloud now - particularly interested in security in the cloud these days, working with Palo Alto in Azure and AWS.My wife and I live in Riverside, California with our four dogs and now five cats - dogs and cats living together! – mass hysteria. The dogs are two australian shepherds, a border collie, and a german shepherd. All herding dogs but they are smart and know that the cats are not for herding. The dogs are my favorite, though I also help to look after a fluctuating number of thoroughbred horses as well.

Hi everyone!


I'm Connick, and I live in Santa Cruz, CA. I am currently a Computer Science student at UC Santa Cruz, and grew up immersed in network-related technology (my dad is a network architect).


During my free time I love to take photos, ride bikes (both road and mountain), talk about cars / motorcycles, and experiment with new software that I find on the Internet.


I love my cat (Delano) back at home (and I like dogs too). My favorite color is blue.


I'm really looking forward to learning a lot from this opportunity as well as contributing to the team!

Hi I’m Adam. After a military career spent being a water treatment specialist I longed for a change. When deciding my next career move my brother suggested I give networking a try. After 4 years of doing networking on the military side I finally got a job as an entry level network administrator. Being in the military you get to see the good and the crazy challenges networking can have.


I’m starting to really develop an interest in virtualization and the cloud and how that ties in to routing and switching. I truly can say that I love configuring routers and switches and is even more amazing how I think of data centers and enterprise systems.


I recently read an article on big data that basically stated an example of a pedabyte and how much information that was. To me it is fascinating how our need for information helps drive this world forward. Remember when you were a kid and had two cans tied with a string and you talked in to it and could hear each other ? Remember Early cellphones ? Remember radio waves and learning you could transmit a picture via radio waves. Now think satellites they are essentially a big radio. Now think woah where is all this information stored. For me making end to end communications work is awesome - it can be stressful but when you have moments when you feel like a kid and have that ah ha moment of NOW it’s working - that’s how you know you have found one of your passions in life.

Hello Indeni Crowd,


My name is Vasileios Bouloukos and I live in the wonderful Athens, Greece. I am passionate with the IT and Network Technologies. I have obtain ~25 Certifications from known vendors, most of these are related to IT and one of my personal goals is to reach the one hundred certs till my retirement :-)


I am proud of being a member of Indeni and contributing to the development of the Indeni product. I am sure that this product will penetrate heavily in the market making the life of the IT engineers and IT Managers much easier and less stressful!


Regarding my favorite animal…I will not mention but I will describe it. The first correct response will win a virtual coffee with me during the summer. The background will be from my country house found to the marvelous Paros Island and with the view of the Aegean Sea :-)


It appears to the Homer’s Odyssey and its name is Argos.

“Argos used to be known for his speed and strength and his superior tracking skills. Unlike everyone else, including Eumaios, a lifelong friend, Argos recognizes Odysseus at once and he has just enough strength to drop his ears and wag his tail but cannot get up to greet his master. Unable to greet his pet, as this would betray who he really was, Odysseus passes by (but not without shedding a tear) and enters his hall, and Argos dies."


PS: Please don’t use google to find the answer! Sometimes is useful to think :-)

Hi all,


I am Jason White, I live in Southern California with my wife and 1 of 2 kids (one is away at college) and a couple of dogs. I am a Security Architect for a large county government.


I have a strong interest in Security (goes with the job title) as well as the cloud and the new challenges that brings.


I am not really an animal person (our dogs can be fun).


Most people do not realize that I am a musician and play guitar and piano in my spare time. Though what really gets people is that I am involved in a large haunted house here in So Cal. I do lots of construction, audio, and lighting work, as well as help manage operations while we are running in October. This is a charity event that has rasied over $200K in the last 8 years for youth and arts programs in the community.

Hello everyone,

I’m Troy and I currently reside in freezing Massachusetts. I am a network engineer for an organization of over 1 million people with reach around the world. Our networks are very dynamic and continually are redefined, redesigned and we are always growing and looking to the future. My professional interests are routing and switching but I love to learn about any and everything. I am trying to learn about automation considering it is coming whether anyone likes it or not.

I don’t have any pets right now but my favorite animal is a Doberman, one day I’ll own one. My personal fun facts is I used to be a licensed skydiver and flirt with giving up my lifestyle and doing that full-time, growing dreadlocks, wearing flip-flops and jump out of planes all day.

I look forward to learning and giving to this community!
Thanks

Troy
