About me

Hello folks. I am Ish Sookun, some may know me as Nitin.

I am a computer geek residing in the heart of Indian Ocean on the beautiful island of Mauritius. I started my computing career as an entrepreneur and founded Indra Co. Ltd. In the quest for more challenge, I handed management of the business over to the family & joined Linkbynet Indian Ocean Ltd as a Unix\Linux System Engineer. I spent some time spreading Linux love at Orange Business Services, worked in the R&D Linux System Team as Sysadmin/Team Leader at Stella Telecom, until finally I landed at La Sentinelle (

I have been an openSUSE Advocate since 2010 and I spend a lot of my free time evangelizing Linux & FOSS. I am an active member of the Linux User Group (Mauritius) and Mauritius Software Craftsmanship Community.

I enjoy scripting in Bash, Perl, and I usually publish my work on my blog ( I am a free thinker & I believe in sharing knowledge.
