Automated testing - I am the upstream maintainer and author of Depcheck, an automated dependency checker written in Python. Depcheck can be found here.
Realtime Kernel maintainer - I build the realtime kernel for Fedora, which can be found here.
New release testing (Fedora) - Currently in the Beta stage of Fedora 24
Creation of test plans and cases for new software or features within Fedora - Between releases, I work on updating test cases and release criteria to both fix flaws found during the previous release and to be sure the upcoming release is adequately covered.
ARMv8 - I am working on virtualization on the next generation ARM processor, ARMv8. Fedora is supporting the 64 bit mode, known as aarch64.. Previously worked on the initial bootstrap to get a working quasi-Fedora under which the entire OS could be rebuilt.
ARMv7 - I am quite familiar with ARMv7, even running virtual machines using the qemu/kvm stack with hardware acceleration.
Packager - I maintain several packages in Fedora, including qtile, a tiling window manager written in Python
I am also working on writing my own cloud in Python as sort of an open-source competitor to Digital Ocean. It is still in the very early stages but can be found here.
I also have for the last several years been volunteering as stage crew at a large music festival known as Merlefest. Duties include setup and teardown of audio equipment (speakers, mixers, amps, etc.) as well as setting bands up on stage. This latter can be as simple as put their one mic stand out to, in the instance of the Zack Brown Band one year, setting up a 53' trailer's worth of equipment and props.
