Sodep’s authority. The story tells that a very long long time ago he had hair; but his thousands of hours on FreeBSD, Linux or Unix seem to have had some effect. If you look at the way he handles his console, the access to tons of servers at the same time and the way he finds solutions, then this seems to confirm the phrase “Every legend is based on a historical fact”.
He’s a multi-language programmer, but he has vast experience in Java. He REALLY is a full-stack developer that can start sketching a solutions on a napkin, shaping it and eventually tying it up with some magical lines of awk and who-knows-what other commands.
His brutal sincerity may be a bit acid to some people but it’s absolutely necessary to understand what’s wrong and help the crew to continue evolving.
He’s currently the Ping Pong champion in Sodep.
