Calling all LA Tech Leaders, Devops Leaders, IT Managers / Directors, Infrastructure Managers, Operations Managers and anyone who has leadership and/or decision making responsibilities and would like to network with others in the same boat. Do you straddle the line between DOING operations and RUNNING operations?
The goal of this group is to be able to share our challenges, compare notes and become better informed tech leaders. What worked and what didn't. If you are in a leadership position and want to network with your peers about raising the bar on Running Operations, Website Operations, Datacenters, Servers, Hardware, Networking, Devops, SAN/NAS Storage, Cloud Providers, Configuration Management, Puppet/Chef, Automation, Infrastructure as Code, Managing/Mentoring Ops and Eng teams, Hiring, Open Source vs Commercial Products, Managing Big Data/Hadoop, Budgetting and anything else related to efficiently Running the Business of IT you should definitely join the group.
Do you get fired thinking about how to better scale your systems while keeping costs low? Do you get excited about driving out high-cost enterprise commercial systems in favor of open source alternatives? Does the thought of signing that huge PO for overpriced gear/support make you sick to your stomach? If so, come join the conversation with other like minded folks!!
Please keep in mind the audience and main focus of this group is technical leadership in the context of managing fast paced, high performance yet cost-conscious, web scale type shops. I.e. startups, web shops, cloud providers, SaaS providers, devops embracing shops, etc as opposed to traditional corporate IT. That is not meant to exclude anyone, but rather help set the context for the group and help focus our attention and upcoming meetups.
