About Logan


Bio

I am a continuous student of Information Security, despite my degree, and also have a degree in IT Network Administration. I loved Math. I was pretty good with Algebra (hated geometry, if we're being honest) and am very left brained. I considered pursuing a degree as a programmer, but just couldn't see myself doing it as a career. I still code recreationally (primarily in Python or Bash (Linux), but occasionally JAVA) - I know pieces perl, Ruby, and frequently attempting to learn C++. I am a...

I am a continuous student of Information Security, despite my degree, and also have a degree in IT Network Administration. I loved Math. I was pretty good with Algebra (hated geometry, if we're being honest) and am very left brained. I considered pursuing a degree as a programmer, but just couldn't see myself doing it as a career. I still code recreationally (primarily in Python or Bash (Linux), but occasionally JAVA) - I know pieces perl, Ruby, and frequently attempting to learn C++. I am a CCENT (Cisco Certified Entry-level Networking Technician) - and have taken classes corresponding to Microsoft's certifications for Windows Server 2008 and Windows 7. Looking at my quick-launch bar, the first four entries are: Terminal (command prompt), Firefox, LibreOffice Writer and VmWare Workstation. This should say something about my usage habits.

Beyond my technical qualifications - what can be said for tutoring skills? Well, when I've tutored (informally) for Linux, one of the people I was tutoring (actually, first time I ever really tried tutoring in general) remarked that I should become a teacher.

I love an interesting, engaging puzzles -- send me yours, and we'll work through it.

Microsoft PowerPoint,

Microsoft PowerPoint

While I personally use the Open Source LibreOffice Suite, I have developed some fancy presentations in PowerPoint. (I even tried to figure out if it was possible to embed a flash .swf component into the presentation back in Office 2000 - spoiler alert: it wasn't). I will always balk at Microsoft's decision with the fluid "ribbon' UI upgrade (people were getting lost in the menus - yeah, right - now people get lost in the ribbons), but rants aside, always remember: never read off your slide deck.

Computer

Computer Programming,

Computer Programming

I like to program. Its a fun hobby, and a great exercise in logic. While my most frequently used languages are Python and bash (a Linux shell) - I'm still exploring other languages to try to understand there benefits. I can also write BASIC, but I don't really use it -- if I need something quick, I'll just use bash; if I'm trying to do something larger, I'll use Python. My Java has gotten a little rusty from lack of use, but like riding a bike, I could probably pick it back up given some time. If they count as languages I can also work with HTML, CSS, and javascript. I have also spent some time exploring Powershell, and have a decent level of comfort with Regular Expressions.
HTML,

HTML

One thing I will frequently joke to people about is my ability to write in fluent HTML. While this of course is meant as a joke, HTML (4.1 - I have figure out some of the new HTML5 concepts). While other kids were copying/pasting HTML to make there MySpace Pages look cool - I was actually trying to learn HTML. HTML was the first computer language I ever learned, and I have not lost it. HTML by itself is not hard - its a fairly static language. Making it do something more dynamic - that's the tricky part - relying on things like PHP, CGI, CSS, javascript, and other technologies - some of which I know/understand better then others.
Linux,

Linux

First, I use Linux on a daily basis. Secondly, I have taken a class on Linux. Further - before I even took that class I helped tutor student's from a previous semester's Linux class. I am also currently halfway towards being CompTIA Linux+ Certified (its a 2-exam certification).

Microsoft Windows

Active Directory & Infrastructure. These are the topics I took classes on relative to MCTS using Server 2008. I still have those books, and have used both the Active Directory & DNS knowledge in previous jobs. I've also, using nothing but online resources, picked up the fundamental philosophy of Powershell. I also took a course on Windows 7 which involved understanding group policy, and the essentials around the Registry. One aspect of my day job involves provisioning new Windows 10 machines.
Networking (Computer),

Networking (Computer)

I graduated with an Associates Degree on this topic (IT Network Administration). I have taken courses for the CCNA, and have an (expired) CCENT (I missed my CCNA by about 3 points by waiting too long). I still have the coursebooks and reference guide for it, along with a Net+ textbook. I have also taken courses for Net+, and MCITS Windows 7 & Windows Server 2008.
Python,

Python

Python is the most recent language I've taken to learning, and due to ease-of-use have chosen it in favour of JAVA for most of my current applications. While I started with codecademy, the scope of the tutorial was rather limiting. Luckily I had a project I was working on that required parsing HTML. Using the codecademy as a foundation, I was able to read documentation to build something much better. I now use codewars to stay sharp, and have a few books to aide learning from the ground up.

Very Knowledgeable Tutor

He showed me that subnetting is not all that hard, it just takes practice and some work with binary. He's definetely given me more confidence in a subject that in the beginning is hard to get your head around.

Honest and Transparent Tutor

Logan helped me with brushing up my Linux skills in areas I was unsure of myself in. I fired off a bunch of requests and he handled them the best he could. He did not lie or make up stuff but was honest about what he knows and what he didn't know. Nice guy.

Great breadth of programming and scripting languages

We did a very off the cuff initial lesson where I fired a ton of questions at him and he is very knowledgeable regarding powershell and other scripts/programming languages. I look forward to more lessons with logan.
