About the Author:

Dee-Ann LeBlanc, RHCE (Red Hat Certified Engineer), is a writer, course developer, journalist, and trainer who specializes in Linux.

In the past, she has been the Linux Games editor for the Linux Journal, the Desktop editor for LinuxToday.com, and has written and held positions with a number of other Linux and technology publications such as Computer Power User magazine. She has also written numerous books about Linux. Today, she is the SplunkBase Knowledge Manager for Splunk (www.splunk.com), an IT search company. It is her job to build a community around SplunkBase (www.splunkbase.com) that fills this IT troubleshooting resource with world-class content.

Richard Blum has worked in the IT industry for more than 20 years as a network and systems administrator. During that time, he’s had the opportunity to work with lots of different computer products, including Windows, Netware, Cisco, Avaya, different flavors of UNIX, and of course, Linux. Over the years, he’s also volunteered for several non-profit organizations to help support small networks that had little financial support.
