Andy Seely

Andrew “Andy” Seely is a Solution Architect for Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) in Tampa, Florida. He got his start in IT as a night shift tier-one and spent the last 20 years in the government and military sector, growing as a sysadmin, engineer, supervisor, and eventually a technical manager for small and large teams. Along the way, he learned that the hardest skill of a good manager is knowing when to be the boss and knowing when to be quiet and listen. Andy shared many of his management experiences in his bimonthly column "/var/log/manager" for USENIX ;login: magazine in 2014 and 2015, and he has chaired the Government and Military System Administration Workshop at LISA almost every year since 2008.
