  • 2005-12-07 - Jail(8), Isaac `Ike` Levy

  • 2005-11-02 - Time Mgmt for SysAdmins, Tom Limoncelli
    18:00, Apple Store (SoHo)

    Abstract

    Who has the time for time management!? Users interrupt you constantly with requests, your managers want you to get long-term projects done but flood you with requests for quick-fixed, and the machines you manage just never behave, causing problems at the most inopportune moments.

    Tom will discuss techniques he has developed over the last 15 years including:

    • How to find time to get projects done
    • The best way to manage interruptions from users
    • Open Source tools for tracking requests
    • How to turn chaos into free time
