Last Saturday, a BarCamp event was held in Antwerp, Linkeroever. Last year we sponsored the event, and I had a “free” ride without having to prepare anything. This year, I wanted to change that, by giving a presentation of my own.
I decided to talk about “High Availability” in IT, what it means to prepare systems that run 24/7, without going offline. In short; a cry for respect for what all ITers out there do – keeping the world online.
Here’s the presentation as served by SlideShare. Depending on where you work, this might be NSFW. ;)
Update: this presentation contains some NSFW content. I’m leaving them in because it’s a mistake I made in 2010. I learned my lesson, I won’t do that again – but it feels wrong to change history and pretend I was never this stupid.
I had a great day, with some very interesting talks. I look forward to going again next year!
