Hey there DevOps Enthusiasts!

It's that time for our next meetup. Join us for a talk with Tom Limoncelli as he highlights some of the most radical ideas from his new book 'The Practice of Cloud System Administration.' The book focuses on “distributed” or “cloud” computing and brings a DevOps/SRE sensibility to the practice of system administration. Unsatisfied with books that cover either design or operations in isolation, the authors created this new reference centered around a comprehensive approach. Some of the radical advice includes: improving uptime by using cheap unreliable hardware, why you should crash servers at random times, and that you should make peace with outages.
