How Lars Met Plone

I am Lars Noldan, one of the System Administrators at Six Feet Up. I had been working as a Systems Administrator for a leasing company for about three years when I received a call from a friend of mine asking if I knew any "smart unix folks." I provided my friend with a few names and went back to my daily grind. This happened at least twice more before I finally gave in and scheduled an interview for myself. During the interview I was asked several fun and interesting questions. One that stands out is "In relationship to DNS, what is a TTL?" Andrew Parker conducts an entertaining interview.

After the interview, I received a phone call to make an offer which ultimately I couldn't refuse. The following Monday I arrived at Six Feet Up. I had only three days of training before the entire office left for the Plone Conference 2008 in Washington, D.C. I didn't really meet Plone until my second month working for Six Feet Up. It was a quick and dirty training from Andrew about how to restart stuck Zope instances.

I have since come to know a lot about the technologies that go into hosting Plone. I worked with Andrew Parker and the Plone community to migrate to a new server hosted at Six Feet Up. I also help with the regular maintenance of the server hosting I have deployed my own Plone 4 site now, although I don't have much content in the site yet. I gave a presentation on RelStorage at the Plone Symposium East 2010. At our own Plone Deployment Workshop, I will present two talks on the second day. In the morning, I will present my Plone on Relstorage talk. In the afternoon, I will cover Plone Monitoring Strategies.

Overall, I have come to appreciate many of the functions of Plone. As a longtime supporter of Open Source technologies, I believe that Plone is a strong CMS solution for many organizations.
