Chris Takemura and Luke S. Crawford, authors of "The Book of Xen" will
talk about their experiences running a small geek-oriented VPS
company, and their efforts to reach feature-parity with the so-called
"cloud".

Chris Takemura is a longtime *nix sysadmin, Perl hacker, and
technological hobbyist. He's been using Xen from its early days, and
helped to build prgmr.com's reputation as "hosting for the technically
adept."

Luke S. Crawford has used virtualization in production since before it
was cool, virtualizing hundreds of servers for large and small
corporations. He launched the prgmr.com VPS service in 2005, selling
virtual servers based on FreeBSD jails before switching to Xen in an
effort to more fairly allocate resources.

Meetings are open to the public and are free of charge.
