Awesome Conferences

Early-bird discount for LISA'12 ends on Nov 19th!

LISA is coming to San Diego, CA, December 9-14, 2012 and, as always, the committee has put together an amazing schedule of programs. Come for a few days of training, 2-days of technical sessions, or spend an entire week immersed in sysadmin geekery!

Take anywhere from 1 to 6 full days of training and create the curriculum that meets your needs.

Take advantage of 47 half- and full-day training sessions from industry leaders, including my highly rated "Intro to Time Management" and "Team Efficiency" tutorials.

Take the all-new training class "Build your own cloud with Ganeti Virtual Cluster Manager" co-taught by Guido Trotter and myself.

I'll be doing a "Guru session" (open Q&A) "Ask Me Anything about Time Management" on Thursday morning plus a book-signing at the O'Reilly booth later that day.

And don't miss:

  • Vint Cerf's Keynote Address on "The Internet of Things and Sensors and Actuators!"
  • Matt Blaze's plenary "NSA on the Cheap"
  • Selena Deckelmann's Plenary on "Education vs. Training"
  • Geoff Halprin's closing talk on "15 Years of DevOps"

As most of my readers know, LISA is my favorite conference. As a policy I don't endorse products but without hesitation I recommend attending the Usenix LISA conference as *the best way to help your career, *become a better system administrator, and be involved in the larger community of system administrators.
