        About VIVEK GITE

        Who am I?

        I am the creator behind nixCraft ( and, a site that helps new and seasoned Linux and Unix/*BSD sysadmins/developers who want to make the most of the sysadmin-hood.

        Okay why I am starting a Patreon account:

        nixCraft is a single (one man) indie operation and online since 2002. I am a seasoned sysadmin and a trainer for the Linux, operating system/Unix shell scripting.  I had started this site for sharing my knowledge and documenting my experience as a sysadmin. Over last 15+ years site grown a lot. 

        Now we are in 2020. I have written over 7000+ tutorials, FAQs and long blog posts. Apart from posts, I regularly reply tech support emails, maintain Linux shell scripting tutorial wiki, update old tutorials with relevant information and moderate comments. nixCraft has become a 40+ hour/week job for me. I want to nixCraft to grown more for a long time. Create more content and may be video tutorials too. I am obsessed with writing and helping others to learn Linux and open source software. I believe nixCraft should continue for a long time.
