Stealing Best Ideas from DevOps: A Guide for Sysadmins without Developers

Please RSVP either to the Meetup page that will be updated soon or via email to [masked] so we know how much pizza to get.


DevOps is not a set of tools, nor is it just automating deployments. It is a set of principles that benefit anyone trying to improve a complex process. This talk will present the DevOps principles in terms that apply to all system administrators, and use case studies to explore their use in non-developer environments.

His latest book is the 3rd edition of _The Practice of System and Network Administration_ (Addison-Wesley). He is also known for _The Practice of Cloud System Administration_ (Addison-Wesley) and _Time Management for System Administrators_ (O'Reilly).

    Hi all,

    Please remember to RSVP to either the Meetup page or to me ([masked]) via email so we can get an accurate count for the meeting. This is important because we have to move the meeting to a different room and we want to make sure that there will be enough seats. We also want to make sure we have enough pizza...

    We are currently planning on holding the meeting at:

    Schmitt Hall, Room 104
    Montclair State University
    1 Normal Ave
    Montclair, NJ 07043

    The closest parking to the building is the Red Hawk Deck:

    Parking will probably be ~$6.

    Schmitt Hall is an 8 minute walk from the parking garage:

    If you need to get in touch with someone for further information, please call or text [masked] .

      Hi Joe, this information is good. Is it possible to have it posted on the main page rather than in the comments? Or even just a note that additional direction details are in the comments below. Thanks!

    If you are planning on taking the train, you can use the Montclair State University stop on the NJ Transit Montclair-Boonton line. There is a shuttle that is supposed to meet every incoming train. The shuttle stop is to the north of the parking garage at the station. You should take the shuttle to University Hall.
