Everything Is Terrible, and We're to Blame

Friday, December 9, 2016 - 11:00am11:45am

Jim Perrin, The CentOS Project


A quick look around the IT industry tells us that it's primarily held together with duct tape and bubblegum, and as we drive technology into more places, the problem is only getting worse. We laugh at companies who don't do things "right" or empathize with sysadmins caught in the middle, but when it comes down to it, WE are the ones ultimately responsible.
