Web operations engineers deal with architecting, maintaining, and scaling the systems which drive web-based applications. While creating a basic web application is relatively easy these days, the systems on which they run get significantly larger, complex, and more difficult to manage when you have to design for millions of page views a day. Luckily, these seasoned professionals are here to help. From DNS to databases, networking to service failures, they walk you through the basics and give you the resources you need to keep going.

These videos are in supplement to the free written curriculum of the Ops School project, available at http://www.opsschool.org . Ops School is a community-driven, comprehensive program teaching the skills necessary to become a professional operations engineer. Check out the curriculum and learn how!

Comments about oreilly Web Operations 101:

Those guys know their stuff! And that's very interesting.

BUT the learning curve is really too big from the first video to the last one (even the second one).

If you buy this video set, you will (surely) need to do a lot of homework to fill the gap between those videos.

Comments about oreilly Web Operations 101:

I was interested to watch this video to learn the scope of web operations and compare that with my current knowledge. Overall it is a good introduction to how the internet communicates from browser to server along with network communication via command line. It starts off with non-technical terms and descriptions of operations therefore a wide audience can understand it. However, the presentation gets technical quickly so that it assumes the viewer has general knowledge of networking. Also the MySQL section seems out of scope and should be for database administrators.
