Date: Thursday, October 2nd, 2014 -- 7:00 PM

Topic: Creating Highly Available Environments in the Cloud

Presentation by Jonathan Curry Community Advocate | Linode

A little about myself: I've been using Linux since the early 2000s, worked in the hosting industry since 2008, and joined Linode's Customer Support Team in 2013. I've helped customers with everything from sales inquiries and billing issues to deploying & configuring systems from scratch, troubleshooting web server, database, and kernel issues, and installed & configured physical servers and network gear in data centers. I now work with Linode's marketing department as a Community Advocate to build meaningful relationships with our customers, find out how we can help people succeed on our platform, as well as find out what we're doing well and how we can make Linode services even better.

See you on Thursday, October 2nd, 2014 at 7:00 PM.
