Video number two of the DevOps meeting is Stephen Nelson-Smith of Atalanta Systems bravely doing his talk – sans slides due to laptop failure(this is why I keep my talks on GitHub). It seems that the technology problems didn’t end there, because I didn’t start filming immediately due to a PEBCAK issue.



Once we get all sysadmins using version control, I’d be minded to steer them to Git. Subversion would be a good start for those who still don’t use any VCS – especially with the cool hosting options available.

Looks good – since there's no video, would be ideal if you could put up an audio-only version (for the 'podcast commuters' among us)
