After last year's Scaling with PHP in the cloud, HasGeek is organizing Rootconf, an annual conference for sysadmins, devops, and BOFHs to share experience and knowledge, to teach, learn, and hangout with friends and colleagues. Rootconf will be held on May 26th, 2012, at Dharamaram College, Bangalore.
If you're a Sysadmin, come over, share your experience, and crack a joke about Perl.
Have a lot of servers? How do you manage your herd? Share and learn the tricks of configuration management with your fellow server cowboys/girls. Talk about your organization!
Dealing with a high-traffic operations and your server is not performing as well as expected? Do you know how to squeeze the last inch of performance out of your server? This track will focus on showing you how!
Securing access to your server can be a daunting task. Come and talk about how you do it.
Do you run your own cloud? Do you use virtualization? We'd love to hear about it!
How do you get to know of fires? How do you use the various packages around? Share your monitoring methods and learn new ones from others.
Do you have what it takes to speak to fellow sysadmins?
Would you or your employer like to sponsor Rootconf?

Christ University Campus, Bangalore
Rootconf is set in Dharmaram College's beautiful, tree-filled campus (nothing like the back-to-college feeling).
To get there, enter Christ University’s main entrance gate on Marigowda Road and drive straight down to Dharmaram Vidya Kshetram, within the campus. Christ University is at Dairy Circle, half a kilometre from the Forum mall. Rootconf is in DVK's Theology block, behind the main auditorium. If you are approaching from Dairy Circle, drive up to Hosur Road for a U-turn. The campus has sufficient parking space.
HasGeek is a developer-led initiative, and has been un-organising the unconference scene since 2010. HasGeek is an attempt to solve the problem of insipid conferences organised around buzzwords by uninterested, soulless corporate entities who pitch them as company training events or as places for companies to pick up hot developers.
We are attempting to build a new space, a space that is genuinely respectful of the communities and topics that we choose to engage with. We want to be a space for developers who are as excited as us about technology and the possibilities that it creates, not to be a recruitment fair (though we hope you do find partnership possibilities at our events).
We are community-driven – check out our speaker-selection funnel, where you decide what talks to listen to by voting up or down – and small – there are just a handful of us running the show. We are doing this because this is what we love: bringing a whole bunch of us geeks together, sharing our interests and expertise and hanging out later over beverage of choice.
