 The Useless Use of *, Jan Schaumann

 A brief look at common shell commands and pipelines found in most 
 engineers' scripts, this talk aims to illustrate how the appropriate use 
 of the various flexible unix tools might allow for more efficient 
 execution and argues against the premature dismissal of the shell as a 
 scalable programming environment.

 Originally given in 2007 at the Southern California Linux Expo, this 
 updated version of the talk will also diverge into the direction of 
 premature optimization and overuse of "the big gun" for simple problems.

 About the speaker:

 Jan Schaumann currently works as a Senior Network Security Engineer at 
 Etsy. Prior to that, Jan was a Senior System Administrator, Systems 
 Architect and finally Principal Paranoid at Yahoo! Inc. He is also an 
 adjunct professor of Computer Science at Stevens Institute of 
 Technology, where he teaches classes in System Administration and UNIX 

 With this unique background in both a small scale academic as well as a 
 massive industry-leader corporate enterprise environment, Jan has over 
 10 years of extensive real-world experience in the practice and teaching 
 of System Administration. He has given presentations on various topics 
 at both national and international venues.

 At the moment, Jan is working on a course book on System Administration, 
 to be published by Wiley & Sons in 2013. He lives with his wife and two 
 daughters in New York City, where you may find him riding a large 
 skateboard. You may feel free to buy him a beer anytime.
