Jeremy Audet

The author on the forehead of Mount Mansfield, Vermont.

I'm a computer geek, athlete and scholar of sorts. You can find my fingerprints all over the web, but I am most consistently involved with the Arch Linux community: I maintain software packages, edit the wiki and participate in mailing lists, among other things.

You can get an OK understanding of my skill set by checking out my LinkedIn and GitHub profiles. The abridged version is this: I know about software engineering, Linux system administration, computer networking and computer engineering, in that order.
