PDXPUG: August meeting

When: 7-9pm Thu Aug 18, 2011
Where: FreeGeek
Who: Rob Wultsch
What: Lessons Learned From Managing Way Too Many Database Servers

Rob Wultsch, a recent addition to Facebook’s Database Operations team, will compare and contrast the Facebook deployment with his previous work with another large deployment of open source databases. In this db-agnostic talk, he’ll go over: the bizarre becoming ordinary, the many types of infrastructure that do not scale and what does and does not work when building a DBA team.

Before joining Facebook, Rob worked for a very large hosting company as a database administrator and a newspaper as a web developer. In his free time he enjoys riding his motorcycle and bicycle and fantasizes about moving to Portland.

As always, beer afterwards at the Lucky Lab. See you there!
