System Administrators

Python is a very effective scripting language that can be used for ad
hoc tasks or major applications. It fully supports object orientation,
classes, and modules. Jerry will demonstrate how Python was used on the
BLU servers to reduce a 1-hour plus task to one of under 5 minutes.
Jerry will also demo a graphical tool used to manage the BLU hosts.
Jerry will show some code examples in Perl, and Bash and Python.
