A Long Day's Journey Into Backups

This is a story of the journey taken to have effective, safe backups in customer environments. Part history (four separate solutions implemented), part prescriptivism (use the cheaper storage solution, my GOD use the cheaper storage solution), part actual technical solutions (tar, S3, NFS/EFS), let's talk about the thousand solutions we tried, and what is really and truly working for the company and for me (and you!), the operations engineer.


Rachel is a Bash and Python programmer in the Ops space at a small healthcare company in Portland for the last several years. She loves showing people the command line and getting involved with open source and Python community. She has two cats & a cool husband, and loves bicycle commuting and the McElroy brothers.


Code Reviews with Doofus and Diligent!

Two lovable scamps demonstrate acceptable and less-than-acceptable behaviors while reviewing code submissions, and an unreliable narrator expands upon how good code review practices help avoid discouragement, resistance, siloing, and small-scale burn-out. Targeted at beginners and curmudgeons alike, this will be a relatively high-level talk focusing on patterns of behavior frequently found in software communities.


Ryan McKern does some stuff with software for a Big Ol’ Social Coding website you might use, and he’s reviewed a whole lot of really bad patch sets across his career (he probably wrote a few of them). He’s on Twitter at @the_mckern and he’d love to hear about your hottest takes about comic books or reviewing code effectively.
