Register now and avoid the rush! http://picconf.org Space is limited!

Registration is open for the 2012 LOPSA PICC conference, May 11-12, 2012 at the Hyatt Regency hotel in New Brunswick, NJ. Sysadmins and IT workers from Maine to Virginia are expected to attend the most talked about, community-driven, sysadmin conference of 2012! We're excited to announce our slate of speakers and world-class tutorials for 2012. Complete details at http://picconf.org

FRIDAY is all about world-class training:

This 2-day conference starts on Friday with long-format tutorials on a wide variety of topics by world-class instructors: Topics include PowerShell, Puppet, Amazon Web Services, WordPress, DNSSEC, IPv6 and much, much more! (Tutorial schedule: http://www.picconf.org/picc12-training-classes )

SATURDAY adds invited speakers on a wide variety of topics:

  • Learn how Google does backups, how Etsy manages DevOps, and how Mozilla has radically revamped their software release process.
  • Windows users will love the talks on MS Small Business Server and tutorials on PowerShell (requested back for a 2nd year).
  • Linux users will love the talks about high performance computing, the Ganeti free virtualization project, and advanced monitoring techniques.
  • DevOps will be impressed by speakers from "the big three" configuration management vendors: CFEngine, Chef, and Puppet.
  • Cloud computing training from speakers with "from the trenches" experience. (Speaker list: http://www.picconf.org/picc-12-talkspapers )

LAST YEAR'S attendees said:

  • "The talks were all technical; no marketing hype, no sales people!"
  • "Small enough to have a community feeling, big enough to draw big name speakers."
  • "Next year I'm sending my entire team!"

REGISTER soon. You're boss will approve!

Priced right! Being a non-profit, community-based conference the registration fee is what you'd pay just to travel to the big conferences. We bring world-class speakers to you; saving you money and travel time. Registration packages from $334 to $621 (with extreme discounts for students and unemployed). Save up to $125 by registering before Friday, March 30, 2012!

I'll be the speaker at LOPSA NYC's meeting in January. This will be a repeat of the "[email protected]" talk that I gave at LISA 2011. It was very well-received. If you missed it at LISA, this may be your last chance to see it live.

Official announcement: http://www.lopsa-nyc.org/content/google-sre-when-developers-and-sysadmins-collaborate-things-get-better-faster

(Please register so you can get into the building. The registration form is at the bottom of the log post)

The talk starts at 7pm. Please come early so you can get through security.

I'll be speaking at LOPSA-NYC Tuesday, June 14, 7pm. Please pre-register to speed your way through security.

Come here me speak about the Ganeti open source project. Think virtualization clusters have to cost big bucks? Think virtualization isn't useful for a small site? Come and find out why a person that usually talks about Time Management thinks virtualization is his new favorite time management trick.

Here is the official announcement.

  • Topic: Ganeti: Open source virtualization (like VMWare ESX + VMotion but open source)
  • Speaker: Tom Limoncelli, Google, Inc
  • When: Tuesday, June 14, 7pm - 9:30pm

  • Description: Ganeti is a cluster virtual server management software tool built on top of existing virtualization technologies such as Xen or KVM and other Open Source software. Ganeti takes care of disk creation, migration, OS installation, shutdown, startup, and can be used to preemptively move a virtual machine off a physical machine that is starting to get sick. It doesn't require a big expensive SAN, complicated networking, or a lot of money. The project is used around the world by many organizations; it is sponsored by Google and hosted at http://code.google.com/p/ganeti

This month's NYC DevOps meetup has a special speaker: Mark Burgess, inventor of CFEngine, talking on the future of configuration management.

Topic: Mark Burgess presents DevOps and The Future of Configuration Management

Mark Burgess is the founder, chairman, CTO and principal author of Cfengine. He is Professor of Network and System Administration at Oslo University College and has led the way in theory and practice of automation and policy based management for 20 years. In the 1990s he underlined the importance of idempotent, autonomous desired state management ("convergence") and formalised cooperative systems in the 2000s ("promise theory"). He is the author of numerous books and papers on Network and System Administration and has won several prizes for his work.
