There are always ideas going around in my head for more talks, so if you want to hear about something that you feel is up my alley feel free to get in contact. Notable ones that have been somewhat developed are:

  • Networking for Systems Administrators - A walkthrough of bits of networking that many Systems Administrators aren't familiar with, from Spanning Tree through BGP. 1/2 to 2 day depending on content.
  • "Why SysAdmins hate your code" - A talk aimed at developers covering how to make apps that Systems Administrators consider well-designed for deployment and managemnt. 1/2 - 1 hour.
