Enjoy!

...because we're re-branding The Practice of System and Network Administration as "Volume 1".

  • Vol 1 == enterprise IT
  • Vol 2 == server/service administration

I'm excited to announce my "book tour" to promote The Practice of Cloud System Administration, which starts shipping on Friday, September 5!

I'll be speaking and/or doing book signings at the following events. More dates to be announced soon.

[NOTE: The complete list has been moved to http://the-cloud-book.com/book-tour.html]

This book is the culmination of 2 years of research on the best practices for modern IT / DevOps / cloud / distributed computing. It is all new material. We're very excited by the early reviews and hope you find the book educational as well as fun to read.

I'd be glad to autograph you copy if you bring it to any of these events. (I have something special planned for ebook owners.)

Safari Books Online now has all chapters of The Practice of Cloud Administration. "Rough Cuts" are pre-editing drafts. You get to see the book with all the typos and misspelled words... but 2-3 months before the real book is available: http://my.safaribooksonline.com/9780133478549
