-> In this one-hour special, self-proclaimed notable NMT alumnus and DevOps engineer Jesse Crawford will talk about the world of DevOps, which is both a career and a buzzword.

We’ll talk about configuration management, modern IT operations practices, and The Cloud and what’s really different about it. This will be a look at a whole career path that you don’t hear about at Tech. Other buzzwords covered include: PaaS, IaaS, SaaS, horizontal scaling, webscaling, synergy, internet RAM-swapping openGL; AOL keyword devops.
