System administrators and devops engineers today are writing, sharing, and contributing back to more code than ever before. This has given rise to a new class of Open Source project: the open source microproject.

Sessions for this user

* Zero to root in 12 months / How We Mentor “Rock Star” Students

The OSU Open Source Lab (OSUOSL) and PSU Computer Action Team (theCAT) provides an amazing program for undergraduate students to learn about system administration. Many of our students have moved on and created their own successful startups and have changed the landscape of open source themselves. This session will cover how OSUOSL and theCAT mentor our students and create rock stars in the industry.

Proposals for this user

* Democratization of infrastructure: Monitoring with nagios and graphite

Git is cool. Configuration is code. The simplicity of a monitoring check or metrics collector enables junior system administrators to learn in small, contained parts. Jr. admins can go from not knowing what monitoring is to having a check in production in a manner of hours.
