About the author:

Jose Miguel Parrella has been involved in the world of open source since he was 14. In Venezuela, he's worked for the Intellectual Property Office, the National Electric Corporation, and other government entities, leading several Linux-based projects. He was the CTO of an open source consulting firm in Venezuela and Ecuador, helping to grow the business and develop a strong team that delivered dozens of successful Linux projects, including the architecture, development, and release of Canaima National GNU/Linux 2.0 distribution of Venezuela, used in over two million netbooks.

Since 2005, Jose Miguel has been involved in the Debian Project, speaking at several DebConfs, and became a Debian developer in 2007.

Debian is one of the most popular Linux-based operating systems, with over 37,000 software packages available in several architectures. This universal operating system provides the foundation for thousands of web servers. It is easy to install, stable, and provides mechanisms for system security.

Instant Debian – Build a Web Server is a concise guide filled with step-by-step recipes to teach readers how to install and configure a Debian web server. With this book, readers will learn to install programming languages, libraries, and frameworks, as well as databases. The book also shows how to choose an installation method based on architecture, hardware, and volume needs. The book teaches its readers to configure APT and learn what to expect during updates and upgrades and explains how to deploy scalable architectures with proxies and clusters.

This book would be hugely beneficial to administrators who are working with Linux or developing web applications. Previous experience with Debian or an APT-based system is not necessary to understand the book. For more information please visit: http://www.packtpub.com/debian-build-a-web-server/book.
