Whether building a web, VOIP, or gaming backend, Operations is using development tools to make it work.

We're interested in the built-in facilities in Linux and the BSDs to programmatically seed and deploy.  We're building traditional UNIX infrastructure with lighttpd/Nginx/Apache, Syslog, NFS, LDAP, MySQL/Postgres and BIND/PowerDNS, but doing it with modern scripting languages (Python, Ruby, Perl...) and revision-control.  Debconf in Debian and Ubuntu.  Kickstart in Redhat and CentOS.  pc-sysinstall on BSD.  A mix of cloud, hosted and datacenter-minded folks.  Expect musings on Puppet, Chef, Augeas, Fabric, CFEngine, and FAI.

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.
