August Meeting: Experience reports

It's time for the August meeting!

This month we will be having experience reports and post-mortems. Experience reports are reports about overcoming a challenging problem, which could be a complex deployment or install or even a tricky migration. Post-mortems are a special kind of experience report: failure-analysis.

Complexity teaches.

Failure teaches.

Let's share!

    I am not feeling well, I won't make it :/ I hope to hear about this presentation later! I would have loved to tell you about how our industrial UPS recently died and how my routers, XSIGO, SAN and virtual environment felt about AD competing with DNS. We learned a lot from this incident needless to say.

      Ooog! That sounded like a fun talk!

      If you'd like, you can present it at the September meeting (the 24th). My talk had lots of questions, and this sounds like it'd get a lot of interest.

    Hey, I'm not going to be able to make it. I got pulled into a late night project which sucks. I have a migration experience with HP and ESXi that I'd love to share but the day job is keeping me here.

    Looking forward to it.

    Hey, guys. I should be able to make this month's meetup but I can only stay for the beginning if I can make it at all (our fantasy football draft starts at 9 in Alexandria and I don't put much faith in the Metro). If I'm able to make it, I'll likely have to duck out by 7:30ish at the latest which is a bummer because I was really looking forward to this one. Is there any way we can view any presentations on the lopsadc.org site?

      If we get any electronic presentations, that's a possibility.

    I'm putting the finishing touches on a report discussing our datacenter migration back in February. I talked about some of this at our March meeting, but this will have actual slides! So fun.

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.
