Talk Abstract

BitPusher is a small company that provides outsourced web operations and
hosting for customer web applications.  CEO Daniel Lieberman will discuss
the philosophies, techniques and compromises that allow a very small team to
deploy new, diverse applications rapidly while keeping their ops environment
manageable.  In particular, Daniel will describe how BitPusher achieves
economies of scale in a diverse environment by choosing their focus areas
