Wednesday 1 August, 7pm-9pm or so.
Taos -- The SysAdmin Co.
Mark C. Langston, Chief Technical Officer
Putting the systems back into Systems Administration
From the advent of the first digital computer, systems
administration has meant coaxing software and hardware to
efficiently perform a given set of tasks. Over the years,
the equipment, operating systems, and applications have
grown more complex. To effectively manage today's demands,
an SA must consider and control not only the hardware and
software one normally thinks of when using the word
'systems', but the people and environment in which these
systems function. This talk will detail the ways in which
these components are also systems to be administered, and
will outline the factors that must be considered to encompass
this broader definition of systems administration.
MORE ABOUT THE SPEAKER:
Mark C. Langston is the Chief Technical Officer of Taos --

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:
*** use this if you encounter DNS problems reaching it ***
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!
