My name is Ish Sookun. I am a passionate blogger and an open source software advocate who lives on the beautiful island of Mauritius. I work as a Systems Architect for La Sentinelle Ltd.

I am a member of the openSUSE Project and spoiler alert, this blog will contain a lot of openSUSE mentions. I am also in the project's Election Committee. So, you might often see me talking about openSUSE elections.

I hang out during the three days of the Developers Conference organized annually by the Mauritius Software Craftsmanship Community. I used to be active within the Linux User Group of Mauritius but these days I am not.

The blog entries on SysAdmin Journal represent my opinion and not that of my employer, neither any group to which I am a member of, unless I specify otherwise.

I often have guest posts by Chittesh Sham and Nirvan Pagooah on SysAdmin Journal.

Some of the images I use in the posts are available from the Internet. I do not own them. I provide due credit to the owner if I’m aware of the source. You are free to contact me to provide proper credit or ask for removal of an image.
