LISA17 is a wrap!

Thanks for joining us in San Francisco for LISA17. Video, audio, and presentation slides are available on the conference program page.

LISA: Where systems engineering and operations professionals share real-world knowledge about designing, building, and maintaining the critical systems of our interconnected world.

LISA is the annual vendor-neutral meeting place for the wider system administration community. The LISA17 program will address the overlap and differences between traditional and modern IT operations and engineering, and offers a highly curated program around three topics: architecture, culture, and engineering.

Industry leaders will speak on incident response, performance monitoring, container architecture, continuous improvement, infrastructure automation, and more.

"It is one of the most important conferences for sysadmins."
