Today will check and let know the updates. I was not there on this
weekend and so couldn't look at it yesterday !

Tradus is launching a massive effort to revamp its entire architecture to
take it to a whole new level. We are backed by the Naspers-MIH group (which
incidentally owns 30% of Facebook).
Do you wish you had used Shinken or Icinga instead of Nagios ? Wish someone
would stop the mysql insanity and choose postgresql ?
Why dont you join us at Tradus (www.tradus.in) at *Gurgaon* and define the
stack we should use. You get to play god.
We are looking for system gurus to own the network infrastructure. This
means you get to scream at the application developers if they thought up of
a poor DB schema (incidentally - mysql, percona, postgres... we are
thinking of all of those). We want to build a monitoring system that not
only monitors systems at the OS and hardware level (nagios, monit, munin ?
you help making the choice), but also at the business level (oops...
transactions per hour have fallen). You will also help us define our
deployment process, failover systems and set up high availability - which
means you need to be good at stuff like replication, configuration
management tools (puppet, chef, bcfg2) and hudson/jenkins. [Extra points if
you have worked with HIDS or any other IDS.]
Your core philosophy needs to say "automation". You need to be good at
system configuration tools (e.g. Puppet, Chef, bcfg2, etc.). You need to be
very good at DB tuning (mysql or postgresql ) as well as replication. We
would need you to have a sound idea of security and firewalls (if you have
worked on HIDS, its a big plus). If you dont know any of the technologies
mentioned above - you need to show aptitude to learn.
Your interview process will most definitely involve you making us a
presentation about your idea of architecture - and will also involve
writing test scripts, deploying, etc.
You will have considerable freedom in working with different stacks -
however, the catch is that we are maintaining an older stack deployed and
working with legacy processes. You WILL have to keep this running as long
as we do not have a replacement. You will have to build your new robust
processes, but will have fight to maintain the older, working, broken ones.
You get your own laptop
Flexible work hours (upto a limit - we believe in work life balance for the
rest of us)

I had conducted an introductory session on Fedora as part of the Tux
workshop , MindSpark 2011 at College of Engineering, Pune ,
Maharashtra, India on Tuesday, December 27, 2011.
There were hundred participants distributed between the morning and
repeat sessions in the afternoon. I explained about hardware
architecture, system boot sequence, and discussed basic installation
concepts to the participants. I then gave a demo of installing Fedora
using Virtual Machine Manager. I showed them the plethora of F/OSS
software that they can use, and also discussed about Fedora
sub-projects, and basic project/communication guidelines. I have given
them F16 ISO DVD images.
Thanks to Sanket Mehta for working with me for a month in organizing
Few photos taken at the event are available in my gallery .

"bashmount is a menu-driven bash script that uses udisks to easily
mount, unmount or eject removable devices without dependencies on any
GUI or desktop environment. An extensive configuration file allows
custom commands to be run on devices."
Ask Fedora http://ask.fedoraproject.org is now running the latest Askbot
with a new default theme. Due to change in the template and theme
format, we haven't applied a custom Fedora theme. Still looking for
help from someone with knowledge on CSS and maybe design custom buttons etc
We are looking for help on creating a mascot, logo. If you are
interested in participating, do let me know.
We had a meeting soon after FUDCon Pune 2011 to do a retrospective on
what went right and what could be improved. I haven't put that up
online yet and intend to but meanwhile, I am leaving it as a blank state
for anyone to fill in their thoughts. I would request you to add your
name under any points you have for transparency but anonymous feedback
is fine too and the page is editable by everyone.
The goal is not merely for reminiscence but provide a opportunity for
everyone, especially future FUDCon organizers to learn from our
experiences. So feel free to add any feedback you might have.
