Building Better Tools
6:45 pm, Suspenders Restaurant
Every System Administrator has his or her own set of tools, programs and
scripts; within every organization, every team of engineers has theirs.
This means that a lot of the software used to maintain the
infrastructure around the internet is written by people who are not
(primarily) software developers. This talk tries to explain how these
people can build better tools: tools that scale well, programs that can
easily be extended, systems that behave well.
While not specific to BSD systems in general and completely programming
language agnostic, this talk focuses on a number of principles,
guidelines and concepts that should apply to virtually any system
administrator`s or engineer`s daily routine.
About the speaker:
Jan Schaumann is a Systems Architect at Yahoo!, a nice place to stay on
the internet, where he designs and maintains infrastructure solutions
servicing over half a billion people each and every day. Jan holds a BS
and MS in Computer Science from Stevens Institute of Technology. He is
also one of the developers of the NetBSD operating system, where,
amongst other things, he manages the NetBSD Project`s participation in
Google`s Summer of Code program.
Jan enjoys life with his wife and daughter in New York City. He can be
reached at jschauma at netmeister dot org.
