Newsletter:7/Announcing Our Newest Zenoss Master
Here at Zenoss, we are very pleased to introduce you to our newest Zenoss Master!
What Is a Zenoss Master?
Zenoss Masters are crucial longstanding members of the Zenoss Community. They contribute to the success of Zenoss Core and the Zenoss opensource ecosystem by authoring ZenPacks and other code and actively participating on the Community Forums and IRC. Additionally, Zenoss Masters frequently serve as lieutenants to the Community Manager and as Forum or IRC channel operators.
Zenoss Masters are chosen by the Zenoss Community Manager with significant input from the Zenoss Community, and especially based on input from existing Zenoss Masters. Qualifications to become a Zenoss Master include authoring ZenPacks or other code for the Community and actively participating on the Forums and on IRC.
And The Newest Zenoss Master Is…
Jason Stanley! This marks the first time since I’ve been the Zenoss community manager that an employee from a Zenoss commercial customer has risen to the ranks of Zenoss Master. Jason is very active on IRC and in the Forums, and is currently working on an expanded Juniper ZenPack.
Jason has been working in Information Technology for 15 years in industries ranging from public school systems to PCI compliance. He has been both a Linux and Windows administrator, supporting popular applications on both platforms. He has also done programming, debugging, and firewall configuration for many different types of companies.
Jason currently works as an Enterprise Monitoring Engineer at Secure-24, a company that delivers managed IT operations,application hosting and cloud services to enterprises worldwide. At Secure-24,Jason is responsible for managing Oracle, PeopleSoft, JD Edwards, Hyperion, SAP,and other mission-critical applications. (For more information about how Secure-24 uses Zenoss, see “[http://www.zenoss.com/about/news/secure-24-increases-customer-satisfaction-and-improves-bottom-line-zenoss-service Secure-24 Increases Customer Satisfaction and Improves Bottom Line with Zenoss Service Dynamics]”.)
In his spare time, Jason is an active member in his community, volunteering for Gleaners Community Food Bank, Angels of Hope, and Coalition on Temporary Shelter.
Schedule permitting Jason will be presented his jacket at a presentation ceremony during the Zenoss GalaxZ convention in April. I look forward to seeing him there!
