Short But Cool Talks at BayLISA - All Welcome

Featured short presentations:

  • Boundary, a system for managing cloud-based IT operations
  • Primadesk, a product to consolidate all of a user's cloud-based content in one place.
  • Roy Rapoport talking about an event timeline system his group built at Netflix
  • Jenny Yang and colleagues about Metafor Software, a tool that detects inconsistencies (drift) in large server environments by leveraging sophisticated differencing algorithms.


Our meetings are scheduled for 7:30pm on the third Thursday of each month.

BayLISA includes system and network administrators across a range of skill levels. BayLISA meets to discuss topics of interest to system administrators and managers. The meetings are free and open to the public.

Recent topics have included OpenStack Nova, Dynamic Tracing and dtrace, ISC's BIND 10, new developments in LAN/top-of-rack networking, and cloud computing at Netflix.

We always welcome presentation topics and volunteer speakers. Use the "Contact us" link on this page to get in touch with BayLISA's directors.


Please rsvp here on Meetup to help us plan for attendance.  (Or, for the June 2013 meeting only, if you'd rather not rsvp via Meetup, e-mail [masked].  Reservations will be accepted based on arrival time.)

    hey, Someone should clean up the address thing. "Follow the signs off Shoreline to the end of Stierlin Ct. " It look like a LinkedIn address.
