The easiest way of explaining the title is perhaps to summarise my history in open source:
Got started with Linux in 98, but never really used it full time as the only desktop OS.
Have done a lot of work on web servers & CMses, also a decade with AWS
Once turned a community position in Drupal into setting up a branch in my country for a very well reputed company, interesting stunt.
I’ve always been following the rule “if it works out of the box I’ll use it, if not next distro please”, but now I’ll settle on Qubes and get things to work come hell or high water!
What I’m aiming at is having a clear strategy the same way I had it going into Drupal. Main objectives are:
Becoming a real privacy wizard, and potentially setting up a business helping others achieve the same. Would include anything from basic precautions all the way up to implementing Qubes for clients ++
Contribute to Qubes in any way possible, even if only as an advocate. (Mainly doing cryptos at present)
Possible isolate 1-3 parts of Qubes that might be worth really getting into, alongside with learning the language(s) that are relevant. The choice of this should ideally align with the first point.
I do not think I have the capacity to become a full fledged security specialist, nor am I interested in ever getting near the corporate world again. Anything related to cryptos that goes well alongside with Qubes is super interesting
