BALLARAT, 8 September 2011

Adding to the engaging lineup already announced for January 2012's , the organising team today confirmed that the Sysadmin Miniconf had been confirmed. Aimed at those who monitor, manage, maintain and map out Linux and open source infrastructure, the event promises to provide tips, tricks and techniques for seasoned professionals and noobs alike.

New Zealand-based Miniconf Organiser Simon Lyall was thrilled with the news.

"It's great to have such a huge level of interest in System Administration from the community. Many of the people involved in LCA have some form of involvement with sysadmin functions such as backups, automation, storage, optimisation, performance and redundancy. Having the ability to focus part of the overall conference provides and opportunity for relationship building and knowledge sharing that wouldn't otherwise be there."
