Rudy Grigar

OSU Open Source Lab

Biography

Rudy was sucked in to the world of open source in the late 90s playing QuakeWorld. He soon discovered a passion for Open Source software, Linux, and system administration. This naturally led him to the OSU Open Source Lab where he learned all things system administration; specifically with Apache, MySQL, Drupal and all of the bits in between.

He has since worked as a Performance Engineer for Tag1 Consulting, designing scalable systems for high traffic Drupal websites, as well as a Systems Engineer for Acquia where he managed an infrastructure with over 2500 EC2 instances.

Rudy is now back at the Open Source Lab where he works with a small team of full time staff and students hosting some of the worlds most exciting Open Source projects.

Startups may let developers lay down the infrastructure which can create some major headaches down the road if done incorrectly.
