The PowerDNS Nameserver is a modern, advanced and high performance authoritative-only nameserver. It is written from scratch and conforms to all relevant DNS standards documents. Furthermore, PowerDNS interfaces with almost any database.

In this talk August will discuss how PowerDNS can serve your Name Serving needs, some of its advantages and disadvantages, how it can play well with other Name Servers and how you can migrate to it.

August is the Senior System Administrator at Sonic.net; more information about him can be found at his personal website: www.schwer.us .

Note: The time has been adjusted slightly for this meeting to accomodate the Sebastopol fireworks.

Join Luke and Neal to hear about Xen, the exciting new technology that will make your life happier and more productive. (Don’t believe anything they say to the contrary — they’re just old and cynical.)


Xen is a virtualization technology that offers nearly all the traditional advantages of virtualization with near-native speeds. Using Xen, administrators can partition users into separate virtual machines, developers can rapidly test network applications, home users can enjoy robust checkpoints and configuration management. Right now it’s all hackerware, but the revolution is coming.

Rob will give a 1 hour overview of Rails including server setup, admin issues and templating.

What is Ruby on Rails? “Rails is a full-stack framework for developing database-backed web applications according to the Model-View-Control pattern.” What that means, basically, is that it lets programmers write applications without needing to worry too much about the boring details. Alternately, it’s a a new, very popular way to create dynamic websites quickly and easily. Even if you’re not a programmer you’ll eventually want to deploy some cool new Rails application, and maybe even customize it a little for your site’s needs.
