John C. Kennedy has worked with Unix and Linux since 1998. He has worked on Nagios as a monitoring tool for much of the past 5 years.
He has been reviewing and tech editing books in his spare time since 2001 and has about 20 open source-related books under his belt. He believes the best part of reviewing is that he learns something from every book he works on.
John was born in the U.S. and grew up in Northern Virginia. He spent some time in the U.S. Air Force and has lived in Germany and the United Kingdom. He has been married to Michele since 1994 and has two children, Denise and Kieran. He currently lives in Virginia.
