Orange County Chapter

Program, January 2008

Build and Release Methodology

Monday, January 14, 7-9 pm

Todd has made his slides available.

This month's program should be particularly interesting for all of us who must install and configure systems, especially for those who manage a plethora of machines that require certain specs.

At the January meeting of UUASC-OC, our own senior admin Todd Jackson, who once spoke to us about Python, returns (only this time he promises to provide us with the notes to his talk afterwards). Todd will compare available free system imaging tools for Linux, with particular emphasis on his own favorite tool.

Todd will cover automated software build tools, patch delivery and installation mechanisms, remote access solutions, system health-check profile data collection and its use in environments without remote access, a survey of options, and our own specific implementations.

Todd is a systems engineer with more than 25 years of IT experience who works at 8e6 Technologies. He is responsible for the maintenance of operating systems and the software master images used in supporting more than 7,000 remote boxes scattered around the Internet.
