About

I’m Omri Bahumi, a 26 year old male from Tel-Aviv, Israel.
I work at EverythingMe since November 2012 as a DevOps engineer.

The purpose of this blog is writing about the interesting things I come across during my work and my personal (technical) life, some of these stuff include:

  1. Cisco equipment (switches, routers, firewalls)
  2. Computer networking in general
  3. Cellular networking in the GPRS/UMTS world
  4. Java+Android/Python/PHP/C development
  5. Linux hacking (not in the bad way, read this post for better understanding)
  6. Arduino
  7. Amazon Web Services (mostly EC2 and VPC)

I have no degree nor any other formal certification. Everything I know I learned/discovered on my own (with some assistance from IRC, books, and Google).

My first encounter with a computer was when I was about 6 years old, navigating through MS-DOS with simple commands such as cd/dir. Later on that was replaced with Norton Commander.
Around the age of 7 I learned how to install Windows 95 by myself (including the boot diskette part, fdisk for partitioning).
By the age of 10 we got our first internet connection at home, and I began wandering around IRC with mIRC.

Around age 12 I started scripting mIRC, this was my first exposure to computer programming (a rather silly one, but still).
Even though it is a pretty primitive scripting engine, I got a lot out of it.
One of the peaks was writing a simple web server to serve my school lessons timetable through HTTP, highlighting the current class lesson in bold.

About a year later I started programming with Visual Basic 6 and a year after that, began my long way with Linux (RedHat 6.2, Peter Norton’s book – Hebrew translation).

This is my life in a nutshell, there were many other things along this path I chose. My military duty service was focused on networking (which before that, my knowledge was only basic).

Hope you’ll have fun reading this blog as much as I’ll have fun writing it,
Omri.
