Chapter 5 – CodeSourcery: An Open Team In Action

CodeSourcery has no offices, but they do rent out a server room in California. The contents of that server room are the responsibility of Ricardo Anguiano. Ricardo drives the short distance to the server room about once a week, but the entire system is configured to be administered remotely.

Ricardo uses special power outlets which can be turned on and off via telnet. This allows him to shutdown and reboot servers remotely. He also builds custom hardware connections in order to remotely press reset buttons or restart USB devices. Ricardo is the one on-site employee; he keeps everything running smoothly for the rest of the company.
