[web-team] January Meeting Announcement
stevegt at TerraLuna.Org
Thu Dec 20 12:20:03 PST 2001
Hi web-team, officers,
- Officers: assuming the location is correct, can someone go ahead and
post this announcement on the list? Can someone verify that I have
the correct location for January?
- Heather: can you go ahead and post this on the web site? I've
already provided a suggested title at the top...
- Cisco liaison or anyone: can someone verify that VGA projectors are
standard issue for SVLUG meetings? (I.e. I don't need to request them
each time.) What about overhead projectors? Wireless (802.11b) access
for the speaker for demos etc?
I'll be out (checking mail sporadically, reachable at 650-868-6358),
in Florida for the holidays, from the 23rd thru the 1st.
Automating Linux Infrastructures
Wednesday, 2 January 2002, 7pm-9pm or so.
Managing Partner, TerraLuna, LLC
Steve Traugott is a pioneer in the area of automated administration
of clusters and enterprise systems; his "Bootstrapping an
Infrastructure" paper at the 1998 LISA conference helped lay the
groundwork. Steve will cover the concepts and terminology of
automated systems administration -- why automate, what components
you need, the role of gold servers, CVS, LDAP, kickstart, makefiles
that run at boot, tools like cfengine, file replication, and
related subjects. He'll also talk about technologies like
ARK/Arusha, ISconf and others on the horizon.

MORE ABOUT THE SPEAKER:
Steve Traugott helped launch the term "Infrastructure Architecture"
in the systems administration community, and has campaigned for
industry acceptance of this "SysAdmin++" career track for the last
several years. He is a consulting Infrastructure Architect, and
publishes tools and techniques for automated systems administration.
His deployments have ranged from New York trading floors, IBM
mainframe UNIX labs, and NASA supercomputers to web farms and
Steve is also an active developer on CPAN, and is author of the
IPC::Session, Mail::TieFolder, and IS::Init modules. He has long
held a deep interest in improving organizations and human relations
through the use of current communications technologies. He and his
wife Joyce have recently founded TerraLuna.Org, a small volunteer
group working to develop a trust model and codebase for
Cisco Building 9.
The land of NUMBERS. The VINEYARDS conference center.
The side we are on is the Silver Oak/Jordan conference rooms,
where a large Cisco fountain is usually not turned on.
Directions on how to get there are listed at:
We've tried our very best for these directions to be accurate.
If you have any improvements to make, please let our Web Team
know! web-team at svlug.org
It's best if you arrive close to on time, as otherwise
there may not be someone posted at the door to let you in.
After the speakers end their presentation there is usually
a Q&A session, time for job seekers and employers to meet,
and often a few door prizes.
When the meeting is over people are encouraged to chat a bit,
but also to exit the building so Cisco can lock up. Don't
worry, a lot of us go to dinner afterward so there's plenty
of time to chat outdoors or offsite.
We look forward to seeing you there!
