FLOSS jobs in Phoenix

The economy is strong for Free Software jobs in technology. Phoenix ( and the rest of the cities in the valley ) continues to be a hot market for FLOSS jobs. Lots of programming ( PHP, Java, C++, Perl ) jobs as well as sysadmin jobs.

If you know someone who is looking for a Free Software job in town, please help them get employed.

Debian now 18

I have benefitted for more than a decade by using Debian every day. Not only do we likely all know many other people who directly use Debian every day, but we probably all benefit indirectly from Debian every day.

Thanks to Debian for 18 fantastic years.

SCaLE SSH Tunnels link to video

Here's the link to the video feed for my Tunneling With SSH talk tonight at SCaLE9x. 16:30 California time. Requires allowing javascript for conferencebywire.com and flash.

got Percona some consulting

Yesterday, I got Percona some consulting. Feels good to give back to a company that has certainly helped me out without ever interacting with me.

One of my students asked for references on improving a MySQL setup that had rolled over for his job. While I did recommend some local resources, I also recommended Percona. We had just talked about performance tuning, so the question was even on-topic :).

FUDcon:Tempe 2011

At FUDcon today. The largest FUDcon turnout ever. Lot's of good conversation in the hallway track.

Really enjoyed Curtis Zinzilieta's performance tuning basics presentation, Can't be here tomorrow, so I'll miss his second presentation if he makes it (he also has obligations and wasn't planning on being here tomorrow). Luckily he made a similar proposal for ABLEconf :).

Presentation accepted for SCaLE 9x

Apparently my Tunneling with SSH presentation was accepted for SCaLE 9x as I'm on the schedule. No email confirmation yet. I presume that'll come through soon.

This presentation is an expansion and update of my Linux Journal article on how to Use SSH to Cross a Suspect Host Securely from last year.
