Tom Limoncelli is one of the preeminent system administrators in the world right now. He is the co-author of "The Practice of System and Network Administration", what is considered by many to be something akin to a religious tome, and he has presented training sessions at LISA for several years on the subject of his second book, "Time Management for System Administrators". This year, he is offering a new training course, titled "Design Patterns for System Administrators".
Tom Limoncelli is a System Administrator at Google NYC and a long time veteran of USENIX Conferences. Limoncelli has authored “Time Management for System Administrators, O’Reilly” and “The Practice of System and Network Administration”, Addison-Wesley, and is a veteran LISA Conference presenter and trainer. At this year’s LISA Conference, Limoncelli will be giving the classic “Time Management” training course, but with a “New Approach”, which he talks about here on the USENIX Blog exclusive.
