Damon Edwards / 

Here’s another round of “3 Questions” interviews that I shot at Cloud Connect 2010 in San Jose, CA on March 17, 2010.
 
Jesse Robbins (Opscode / Chef), Ezra Zygmuntowicz (Engine Yard), and Colleen Smith (Symantec) were asked:
1. What brought you to Cloud Connect?
2. What aspect of the Cloud excites you the most these days?
3. Wildcard question!…
 
Jesse Robbins is the CEO of Opscode and one of the creators of Chef.
Wildcard question: How does “infrastructure as code” unlock the promise of the Cloud?

 

Ezra Zygmuntowicz is a Senior Fellow and Co-Founder of Engine Yard.
Wildcard question: What tooling changes are needed to make DevOps a reality?  

 

Colleen Smith is an Information Technology Architect at Symantec
Wildcard question: How will Clouds impact the culture of internal enterprise IT?

 

Thanks to all for playing along!

  1. Scholarships and grants can help you save a lot of money towards your college education. There are many different scholarships related to different areas of study or designed for certain students. Also look into the different federal aid programs there are. Unlock Her Legs

    If you wish to lose weight, you should reduce your daily consumption of fates and sugars. A healthy amount of fats and sugars is required, but it is already contained in the food that you should eat. You should stay away from pop and energy drinks, sweets and fast food.

  3. When getting in shape, be sure to first invest in a good pair of shoes. When working out, a pair of shoes that fit well and support your ankles can make all the difference. If the shoes you are working out in don’t fit properly, you probably won’t get as much accomplished and might even suffer health problems later in life.

  4. Try to avoid using a credit card, but if you must, pay it off each month if possible. This will prevent you from having to pay penalties such as late fees. If you can, use credit cards for emergencies only. You are going to college to get an education, not a social life, so try to avoid the temptation of using your credit card for entertainment expenses. Financial difficulties can take your attention away from your studies.

  5. Staying active makes a big difference when it comes to weight loss. By trying things like walking or bike riding, you will get rid of quite a few calories that wouldn’t go away if you just watched TV. Try turning off your television and get out there and become active for best results.

  6. Take as many credits as you can handle at one time. Most universities charge you per credit, but only up to twelve credits. After that the rests of the credits in that semester are free. Taking eighteen credits per semester will leave you paying one-third less than your peers for the same education.

  7. Visit the dorm before deciding to live there. You may discover that you don’t want to live in that environment. Not only that, but you may find that you prefer one dorm over the other. Make sure you will get the choice you signed up for, and make sure you have a contingency plan in place if you chose a single room but end up in a quad.

  8. Bring all necessary test materials with you on test day. Not doing so can make you face a rather difficult disadvantage. There are various times when the instructor will not have extra writing utensils, so remember to pack what you need beforehand.

  9. Ask your doctor about the best way for you to lose weight. Your doctor knows your medical history and can recommend how many calories your body needs to survive and still lose weight. If you eat too few calories your body goes into starvation mode, making fat loss almost impossible.
