Submissions for 20-Minute Talk Slots
The talk will cover pipes that range from filter for a keyword in one feed to combining the New Titles List with services like the LibraryThing API or Worldcat APIs. Examples will also be given in how to integrate the output of Yahoo! Pipes into webpages and how we have put them into our CMS (OpenCMS). The talk will make sure to address areas where Yahoo! Pipes either fails or is cumbersome and simpler CSS and Javascript solutions have worked.
'''Talk Title:'''
Vampires vs. Werewolves: Ending the War Between Developers and Sysadmins with Puppet

'''Abstract of no more than 500 words:'''
Developers need to be able to write software and deploy it, and often require cutting edge software tools and system libraries. Sysadmins are
charged with maintaining stability in the production environment, and so are often resistant to rapid upgrade cycles. This has traditionally pitted us against each other, but it doesn't have to be that way. Using tools like puppet for maintaining and testing server configuration, nagios for monitoring, and hudson for continuous code integration, UVA has brokered a peace that has given us the ability to maintain stable production environment with a rapid upgrade cycle. I'll discuss both the individual tools, our server configuration, and the social engineering that got us here.
