New in the group, just wanted to introduce myself.
I've been in the IT world for decades. Although the "devops" term is rather new, I'm one of those techies practicing that thing from many many years ago. I personally range from pure hardware, systems, to programming in various high- and low-level languages.
A few months ago I was hired as a CTO of a company. We've many problems and one is that we lack the "devops" culture. Systems are done "the old way" causing the typical problems we all know ("it works in my machine", "who the hell changed that library in the live server?", "scripts of sysadmins are not versioned and changed on the fly without any testing" and blah blah blah).
Would you believe that the "devels" worked connected to the real mysql database so if they did a mistake in the devel cycle they erased real rows of data??? huh! I've lots of things to change!
I've a lot of work to transform in the culture. Even i'm finding two people in the team a bit reluctant to the agile and i'm finding problems at having a good motivation for them to understand that despite the extra effort of "going everything repeatable, testable and so" it's worth going that way.
I'm hiring more people. Frontends, backends, testers and admins. Those positions for systems I did not want to post as "sysadmins". I already wanted to post the job offers as "devops". So I've been googling a bit around the word and today I found this "agile system administration" google group.
I'm joining just because I want to be in the loop, exchange experiences, establish contacts, and so.
If I had to throw my first question in the group would be:
If I want to hire good senior devops, do you know any job-board or forum where to post the offer?
We have offices in Spain and NewYork. People from around Europe or in fact from around the world are welcome to our office. I'm posting in Infojobs (spanish board) and I also want to post to LinkedIn but maybe you know any other europe-wide or world-wide job-board good to find experienced senior devops.
