Time Nick Message 03:14 pdurbin teancom: how did the talk go? 03:23 teancom I think it went pretty wel, actually! 03:23 teancom I had one developer come up to me afterwards and say that, if he knew even the slightest bit about sysadmining he'd apply for one of my open positions, which made me pretty chuffed. 03:27 teancom @pdurbin ^^ 03:27 crimsonfubot teancom: Error: "pdurbin" is not a valid command. 03:28 teancom heh 07:00 westmaas teancom: what talk did you do? 07:01 teancom Why Being a Sysadmin is Awesome (No, Really!) 07:01 teancom At Buffalo BarCamp 07:28 westmaas haha, cool 13:46 pdurbin westmaas: previously mentioned here: http://irclog.perlgeek.de/crimsonfu/2013-02-02#i_6403949 13:46 pdurbin teancom: what were the final one liners? 14:44 teancom Free Cellphone!, You Get To Tell People They're Wrong (and teach them at the same time), Automate Everything (Lazy is Better!), You're A Cost Center, which is freeing - nothing you do will ever make money, Do All The Things (and then listed all the cool software I get to use/configure/maintain), Make People Happy, followed by Power over Puny Mortals (not that I've ever abused that power), and finally $$$. At least where I am, sysads make m 14:44 teancom ore than devs. 14:45 pdurbin nice 14:47 teancom And then I took some questions, and talked about how "devops" are the future, and the old-school sysad who doesn't write any code, does everything manually, and is soley focused on the OS is a dying breed. Automation is the future, and you have to know how to automate or you'll end up at some bank or university, maintaining SunOS or HPUX machines for the rest of your career. 14:48 pdurbin sounds about right 17:41 larsks Do we have any rackspace people hanging out here? 18:04 semiosis yes 18:04 semiosis (not me though) 18:10 larsks ...okay. 19:44 JoeJulian I don't know anybody at rackspace (cough*rackerhacker*cough)... 19:45 pdurbin westmaas: ^^ 20:02 westmaas JoeJulian: what's up! 20:03 JoeJulian [09:41] <larsks> Do we have any rackspace people hanging out here? 20:03 westmaas larsks: whats up! 20:03 westmaas :) 20:03 JoeJulian :) 20:04 JoeJulian Btw... registration's open. Everybody come to Cascadia IT Conference - http://casitconf.org/casitconf13/ 20:05 dotplus aha, a racker. westmaas, is RS ever open to remote? RS sounds like an awesome company, I'm looking for a new gig, but I'm not moving to sf.ca.us or sa.tx.us, etc. 20:05 westmaas how about...blacksburg, va? 20:05 westmaas :) 20:05 westmaas but yes, we are open to remote 20:05 westmaas I have an entire team of devs that are remote 20:06 westmaas and we have some more operations/engineery types that are remote 20:06 dotplus I'm a sysadmin not a developer, but still. 20:06 dotplus excellent! 20:06 westmaas just not a whole team dedicated to that 20:06 westmaas where you at? Boston? 20:06 dotplus nope, pittsburgh 20:07 dotplus can we continue this in pm or non-logged channel? 20:07 westmaas pm away 20:18 jimi_c I'm soliciting suggestions for a devops style admin console for use by an operations group to do deployments, possibly using mcollective as the underlying methodology. What are people commonly using to do this? Are there FOSS projects or is it typically a roll your own situation? 20:19 semiosis rolled my own with jenkins & puppet 20:19 jimi_c yeah we kind of have that going in qa for our developers 20:19 jimi_c want something a little more polished for ops 20:20 pdurbin what about that thing from etsy? the dashboard 20:20 jimi_c i can roll my own, i'd just prefer something that was pre-packaged to make life easier 20:20 jimi_c was that etsy? I think netflix may have had one too, couldn't remember 20:20 pdurbin crimsonfubot: lucky etsy dashboard github 20:20 crimsonfubot pdurbin: https://github.com/etsy/dashboard 20:21 pdurbin it's more for graphing though... 20:21 * jimi_c goes up one level from that to search 20:21 jimi_c deployinator 20:30 spilth jimi_c: we do deployments using Anthill Pro 20:31 spilth It's used by devs, qa and ops 20:33 jimi_c that looks interesting, not FOSS though :/ 20:33 spilth Nope, though they have an older OSS version somewhere 20:34 spilth Thinks like RunDeck and ControlTier are interesting alternatives 20:39 jimi_c ahh, i've heard of rundeck, forgot all about it. thanks! 21:05 pdurbin semiosis: is glusterbot supybot? 21:06 semiosis [16:06] <glusterbot> The current (running) version of this Supybot is 0.83.4.1+limnoria 2012-07-13T14:08:55+0000.

I knew then that they were serious.
