Hello, I was a Windows admin and later a systems architect for a Washington Mutual bank, US bank that went bankrupt in 2008. When I was laid off in Dec. 2009 I took a trip to South East Asia and fell in love with the place. I ended up staying for 5 years. When I came back to America I tried to get back into the tech market. But with technologies changing, my Windows skills a bit rusty and more using Azure and AWS etc… I was a bit behind. I have tried to get back into the job market but I haven’t been interviewing well over the past couple years, choking on things I have done 1000’s of times.
Anyway, I started in computers as a hobby and I guess that I am back to my roots. I would love to help the Ubuntu-MATE project out, but I can’t code to save my life or even my poor cats life.
So, what can an ex-Windows admin with basic Linux/UNIX skills do to help out Ubuntu-MATE? I already give money which I don’t have a lot of since I do manual labor. Who do we approach, Whimpy? He seems like he has enough on his plate, he doesn’t need to help me help mate
If Ubuntu-MATE doesn’t have need of someone with no skills where else in the open source community should I look?
Thanks in advance,
