For all my nerd friends out there…and in response to being a ‘client’ for one of the project groups in my classes, I made a meme generator. They noted the memes/silly pics I routinely post in notices for them and pitched the idea of a meme repository for for their site.

The College of Business and … Continue reading Fall Break »

I thought this was neat

So, I’m still working on creating an ‘Advanced System Administration’ class, and have been casting about for topics to include. I think building around the philosophy of DevOps might prove to be the answer. I did a search for DevOps tools, thinking ‘labs,’ and found this. More stuff than I ever thought existed… If anyone has any ideas, I’d love to hear them. I’d like … Continue reading I thought this was neat »
