Educating System Administrators
Charles Border and Kyrre Begnum
If you are a long-time attendee of LISA conferences, you will be very familiar with the educators groups that have met either as part of LISA or just before the LISA conference. The Summit for Educators in System Administration (SESA) had its first official meeting in 2013 under the guidance of Kyrre Begnum from Oslo University College and Caroline Rowland from the USENIX Board and NIST. The meeting was a big success with more than 30 academics and others interested in the education of the next generation of system administrators in attendance. Later in 2014, the USENIX Board decided to embrace SESA as a new group under the USENIX banner.
