psadmin.conf 2021 Registration is Open!


We are excited to announce that registration for psadmin.conf 2021 is open! This year, psadmin.conf will be a virtual conference held on May 10-12, 2021.

psadmin.conf is a conference specifically for PeopleSoft Administrators. The conference features talks from expert admins on topics like PeopleSoft automation, open source tools to simplify your job, and success stories on upgrades and patching. This year, the conference offers you the option to sign up for 1, 2, or 3 hands-on guided labs that you won’t get anywhere else. The goal of the conference is to expand your knowledge of PeopleSoft Administration and network with PeopleSoft admins from around the world.

This year, you can choose to sign up for up to 3 Guided Labs that interest you. There are multiple labs to choose from this year:

  • Rundeck and PeopleSoft
  • Clustering PeopleSoft Applications
  • Introductory DPK
  • Intermediate DPK

We are also accepting session proposals until March 19th. Our favorite part of psadmin.conf is hearing from PeopleSoft Admins and how they solved a problem, built a fun tool to make life easier, or why they started working with a new technology. As PeopleSoft Admins, we are always looking to improve how we manage our environments and the best way to learn is from others.

Head over to psadmin.io/conference to view the Lab descriptions, register, view the agenda, and get more details on the event. We will publish a detailed agenda and session descriptions in early April after the Call for Proposals has closed.

We’re excited to see you in May! dan and kyle
