Smile Why I would like to attend?

As a middleware admin I deal with a lot of installations and configurations of product on Linux. Automation of various tasks can help make an administrators life easy. Also I would like to explore more on dev ops side. All this and just the love of learning more are the reasons I would like to attend.

Actually, this is a great offer but I would be lost in all this information.

I work for one of the large university in Southern California. Lot of ongoing learning but not very much training provided. We have to learn mostly our own.

This would be a great opportunity to learn something from industry gurus and apply in university environment.

That is exactly why it's a bonus, and the main component is based on posting at LQ.

I am very happy to announce that O'Reilly has decided to give away an unlimited amount of Expo Hall Plus passes in the event you do not receive the main prize. Simply register with the code "OSCON16XPO" for a complimentary Expo Hall Plus pass ($49 normally).

I work for small software dev company that uses a wide range of OS technologies such as linux (Ubuntu), data stores like PostgreSQL, MySQL, Redis and Mongo, languages like ruby, python, php and their attendant web app frameworks, and a bunch more. We have drawn on a lot of different communities over the years but honestly have not done a lot to give back, beyond some of our employee's personal contributions and maybe a bug report or minor patch here or there. I would love the opportunity to have some face-to-face exposure to the larger OS community and hopefully spur my company to make more of a commitment to get involved.

I am a DevOps/Site reliability engineer and open source is the first place I always start when trying to automate or get something done. As many companies today are taking their first step towards the concept of DEVOPS from traditional operations, open source concepts will help in knitting together a team which spans across multiple skill sets and build a strong skeleton that will address the age old issues most enterprise size applications have, staring from performance to scalability, availability to redundancy etc..
I would like to get an opportunity to participate in the convention and meet people to understand/share the possibilities and extent of open source use in the DevOps roles and emphasize the amount of advantage it can have from operations cost stand point as well. It would be very exciting to meet people and learn the best practices, process and standards that they have implemented in their respective organizations while using OS,as some times using OS may require deviating from the standards, practices that are set forth by ones organization.

Look forward to see if I would be that lucky one

I worked in the low voltage industry for many years, recently I blew out two disks in my lower back and needed surgery to repair the damage and pain.
My surgery did not turn out so well, it left me in worse shape than before. Because of this I have not been able to return to work or do much of anything else.
I have always been the type of person that gets paid for his labor....
I got into Linux about 3 years ago and immediately wanted to learn as much as I could about it, I switched my computer OS to Linux to learn more about it and have not turned
back to windows. Now that I can not do physical labor anymore I have been looking for another career, a change from getting paid for labor to getting paid for my knowledge.
It is hard to work to support yourself and try to attend any type of training. The only thing I can do for the moment is drive a taxi cab.... so I am looking for something new
and I know this is what I would like to do and focus my attention on.
