SysAdmin 101 – Basic Principles

Wednesday, November 13
3:00 – 4:00 p.m.
25 Science Park, room 125

Michael Dunlap, service delivery manager, will present a high-level overview of good systems practice, anchored in three main assurances: reliability, security, and recoverability. The principles and practices discussed in this talk will be generally applicable regardless of the technology stack in play, the number of systems being administered, or the size of your team. As much of what we discuss is principle-based rather than a specific technology, the content should be approachable for all audiences.

Chances are either you’ve found yourself leading a project by default, you’ve been asked to lead a project, or will be asked in the future. No matter the case, this is the Tech Talk for you! Amy Keach, senior project manager, Enterprise Applications, teaches project management basics in the Non-Profit Institute at the University of New Haven and is bringing an IT-focused version of her class to us. Amy will walk us through: What in the world is a project? Are you working on a project, or a task? Breaking a project into managable parts, task accountability, and project communication. You don’t have to master every nuance of the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK®) to manage a project successfully. This session will demonstrate techniques to help you get your team over the finish line.
