I am a full stack developer of the modern web. I express my apps business values in RSpec, capture it's behaviour in Ruby on Rails models and help Humans to interact with it's data through mobile first, responsive and progressive enhanced HTML5, CSS3 and JavaScript driven user interfaces. For more than a decade I am a rigorous practitioner of Free Software development. I love the raw power of communities collaborating and I believe that everyone should be able to run, copy, distribute, study, change and improve the software that is running the world. My day job at SUSE.com is hacking the Linux distribution development platform Open Build Service. In my free time I practice my skills by developing an event organization app, the Open Source Event Manager, by operating the server infrastructure of the openSUSE project and by teaching free software development with programs such as Google Summer of Code.

Everyone likes to talk about how Linux is a robust, stable choice for a server operating system, but reality is a little different - Even the best systems fail, but that doesn't mean your users have to notice. High Availability Clustering (HA) gives you a way of building systems that can monitor themselves, and react to failures, keeping your services (eg. Web server, Database server, etc) running even when the server they're running on has failed, or is in need of maintenance. This workshop will show you how to build a basic cluster using the HA software available in openSUSE. You will need to bring a Laptop capable of running two openSUSE 13.1 virtual machines (preferably using VirtualBox) in order to participate.
