Nerds Rule Wall Street in "Wall Geek" Web Series

Internet TV dramedy explores life in a Wall Street firm

CHEVY CHASE, Md., Nov. 6, 2011 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Take two geeks, plunk them down in a Wall Street hedge fund, add an eccentric boss and a demanding spouse, and you've got "Wall Geek." The new web series, created by Erik Mueller, airs at http://wallgeek.com.

Daniel, played by Erik Mueller, is a geeky quantitative analyst. His coworker Paix, played by Tara Garwood ("Lovely Molly," "The Invasion"), loves peace and yoga. She wants to "help people and make lots of money at the same time." Daniel's boss Sam, played by Michael Gabel ("Homicide: Life on the Street"), has a big ego, but a great heart. Daniel's wife Debra, played by Julie Mun ("Past Life"), wants to live a life of luxury.

"The series was inspired by jobs I had at investment banks after graduating with degrees in computer science," Mueller says. "Some of these things may seem a bit outlandish, but similar things happen all the time on Wall Street."

In the first episode, Sam leaves to start his own fund. In the second episode, Debra asks Daniel for $100,000. In the third and fourth episodes, Paix has a brilliant idea for increasing karma in the world, and Paix and Daniel take the idea to Sam. In the fifth episode, Paix and Daniel launch a stock exchange for "niceness." In the sixth episode, Paix threatens to leave the firm. In the seventh episode, Debra wants to trade up to a new house.

Most DevOps journeys involve several phases of maturity. Research shows that the inflection point where organizations begin to see maximum value is when they implement tight integration deploying their code to their infrastructure. Success at this level is the last barrier to at-will deployment. Storage, for instance, is more capable than where we read and write data. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Josh Atwell, a Developer Advocate for NetApp, will discuss the role and value...

Enterprise architects are increasingly adopting multi-cloud strategies as they seek to utilize existing data center assets, leverage the advantages of cloud computing and avoid cloud vendor lock-in. This requires a globally aware traffic management strategy that can monitor infrastructure health across data centers and end-user experience globally, while responding to control changes and system specification at the speed of today’s DevOps teams. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Josh Gray, Chie...
Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability. In this session we'll describe best practices for "configuration as code" in a Kubernetes environment. We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure ...
Modern software design has fundamentally changed how we manage applications, causing many to turn to containers as the new virtual machine for resource management. As container adoption grows beyond stateless applications to stateful workloads, the need for persistent storage is foundational - something customers routinely cite as a top pain point. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Bill Borsari, Head of Systems Engineering at Datera, explored how organizations can reap the bene...
