Jim Salter is an author, public speaker, small business owner, mercenary sysadmin, and father of three—not necessarily in that order. He got his first real taste of open source by running Apache on his very own dedicated FreeBSD 3.1 server back in 1999, and he's been a fierce advocate of FOSS ever since. He's the author of the Sanoidhyperconverged infrastructure project. He's contributed to websites such as Ars Technica on everything from Wi-Fi to NAS distributions to next-gen filesystems.
