About the speaker

A 26 year veteran of the IT industry, with multiple lives in retail sales, retail technical, wholesale, backline engineering, presales and loads and loads of Unix, Nathan comes to us brimming with a mix of Old Skool Unix skills and attitude and fresh new thinking around how enterprisse can meet the needs of those who have grown up as cloud natives and have trouble relating to the idea of scale outside of horizontal scale. What this really means is people build things, he helps to make them work at scale.

Beards, Brownfields and (de)Borkage

Come on a rapid fire ride with us as we run through what it has taken ANZ to go from a diversely configured, non-uniformly managed fleet to something that, whilst not yet a thing of beauty, is amazingly better than what we started with! We’ll talk scaling of Puppet master, working with Hiera hierarchies, compliance (which was a massive win for ANZ) and a bunch of asides along the way.
