Happy SysAdmin Day 2018

Today is SysAdmin Day, an opportunity to celebrate the work of systems administrators everywhere. We think it’s especially important as the nature of the job means that a successful systems administrator is likely to go unnoticed.

Here at the OTW, our Systems team carries out essential work supporting, troubleshooting and expanding the infrastructure that supports all of our projects, including Archive of Our Own, Fanlore, Open Doors, and Transformative Works and Cultures. They also maintain the servers for a whole host of internal services at the OTW: our internal wiki and email, the Elections website and our main website.
