BayLISA is the premiere system adminstration user group in Silicon Valley and the San Francisco Bay Area. Founded in the very early 90s after the fourth Large Installation System Administration (LISA) conference, BayLISA has supported and educated systems, network, storage, virtualization, and other technology professionals in the Bay Area for over 20 years.

 

We use Meetup to coordinate meeting attendance, announcements, and reminders. We have our official organizational presence on the web, including links to membership, sponsorship, and mailing lists, at www.baylisa.org.

 

Our legacy description:

One way to put it is that there are many user groups, but we are the sysadmins group. BayLISA includes system and network administrators across a range of skill levels. BayLISA meets monthly to discuss topics of interest to administrators and managers of sites supporting more than 100 users and/or computers. The meetings are free and open to the public.

BayLISA grew out of an after-hours discussion among attendees of the USENIX LISA IV conference. The idea was to provide a forum for Sysadmin professionals in the San Francisco Bay area to get together and exchange ideas, hear speakers address topics of interest and most importantly, socialize.

BayLISA stands for: Bay Area Large Installation System Administrators

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
