I had a great time speaking at LOPSA-NJ last Thursday. The turnout was around 20-30 people. Everyone was very friendly. A couple people were there for the first time, I hope not their last time.
The presentation that I did was 60 minutes from my new tutorial called "Design Patterns for System Administrators". The full tutorial is 3-hours long and will be premiered at Usenix LISA 2009. I really appreciate the group letting me run though some draft slides and giving me feedback. It will make the actual tutorial a lot better.
A special shout-out to Bill for inviting me and running the organization. I really appreciate the opportunity to speak!
