Added several modules to my shell scripting class tonight. Added a couple that had been recently been created. Also added a couple I created tonight. Good work on a couple others as well, but they're not yet going online. Working on a lab exercise now. It should be available for tomorrow.
SCaLE has once again accepted one of my talk proposals. This year they've tagged me to talk about Nginx.
I'm really looking forward to SCaLE 10x. It's a fun, informative conference. They also add something new every year. For instance, this year one of the new things is a youth-driven mini-conference. Along with the annual educational mini-conference, I think SCaLE's definitely a great resource for parents and educators. I certainly hope the kids enjoy the youth conference!
Note that SCaLE 10x is a litte earlier in the year than past SCaLE conferences as it's now in January.
SCaLE 10x: January 20-22, 2012 at the Hilton Los Angeles Airport Hotel.

For its 10th anniversary SCaLE is running an art contest. The winner gets a free trip, including airfare within the continental US, to Los Angeles for SCaLE 10x.

SCalE 10x is 2012Jan20-22.
Yesterday, I got Percona some consulting. Feels good to give back to a company that has certainly helped me out without ever interacting with me.
One of my students asked for references on improving a MySQL setup that had rolled over for his job. While I did recommend some local resources, I also recommended Percona. We had just talked about performance tuning, so the question was even on-topic :).
Be a tech evangelist for Mozilla. "Part hacker, part evangelist, part project manager, you're all about making sure developers have the knowledge they need to turn out really cool, cutting edge apps." Sounds pretty cool. Let me know if you get the gig :).
