Radical ideas from The Practice of Cloud System Administration
Keynote Speaker: Tom Limoncelli
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. 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.
