BayLISA Summer "Short But Cool" Session

Our June meeting will be the traditional short topics session, and we're looking for speakers on all sorts of topics of interest to professional system administrators.

The format for this meeting is usually a series of 10-15 minute demos or presentations, followed by a break and a longer "keynote" presentation. Depending on available speakers, we may do all-short-topics this time.

Current speakers include:


* Jesse Monroy on Regular Expressions and Named Pipes

* Bruce Markey, charter BayLISA member, on the Virtual Systems Administrator

* Joseph Atkinson of FreeBSD/iXsystems on FreeNAS plugin architecture

* Robert Harker of Yahoo Sports on Developing at Speed with Jenkins

* Larry Maloney on Hacker Dojo


If you'd like to give a 10 minute talk on what you're doing, or if your company or someone you know of would be interesting to the group, get in touch with directors at with a brief (<25word) bio and brief synopsis of your talk. We'll confirm it and update the web sites.



Our meetings are scheduled for 7:30pm on the third Thursday of each month, LinkedIn HQ in Mountain View. Note that we may get shuffled around a bit between LinkedIn buildings this year--check here for the latest, as soon as we know for sure.

    Some of the 'short talks' went on a bit long. Wish I'd stayed for the near-field communications talk.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
