PDXPUG: Lessons from managing way too many databases at Facebook
Most classes require prior sign up. Please check in at the front desk when you arrive to let them know you are here for the class. Bags must be checked at the front entrance.
Rob Wultsch, a recent addition to Facebook's Database Operations team, will compare and contrast the Facebook deployment with his previous work with another large deployment of open source databases. In this db-agnostic talk, he'll go over: the bizarre becoming ordinary, the many types of infrastructure that do not scale and what does and does not work when building a DBA team.
Before joining Facebook, Rob worked for a very large hosting company as a database administrator and a newspaper as a web developer. In his free time he enjoys riding his motorcycle and bicycle and fantasizes about moving to Portland.
As always, beer afterwards at the Lucky Lab. See you there!
