The Crabbyadmins are proud to present Speaker Tom Limoncelli on March 4th at 7PM at the OmniTI space:
Tom will highlight some of the most radical ideas from the new book “The Practice of Cloud System Administration”. The book focuses on “distributed” or “cloud” computing and brings a DevOps/SRE sensibility to the practice of system administration. Unsatisfied with books that cover either design or operations in isolation, the authors created this new reference centered around a comprehensive approach.
Some of the radical advice includes: improving uptime by using cheap unreliable hardware, why you should crashing servers at random times, and that you should make peace with outages. (we’re not kidding!)
(Note: Tom will not have books for sale at the talk, but he will sign books you bring, even ones he didn't write. Ebook purchasers will receive a sticker to put on their Kindle.)
Tom Limoncelli’s newest book is The Practice of Cloud System Administration (the-cloud-book.com). Tom Limoncelli is best known for books like Time Management for System Administrators (O’Reilly) and The Practice of System and Network Administration (Addison-Wesley). He works in New York City at Stack Exchange, home of ServerFault.com and StackOverflow.com. He tweets @YesThatTom and blogs at http://everythingsysadmin.com
