DevOpsDays Atlanta 2018: DevOps is Not War

I went to DevOpsDays Atlanta for the first time this week. I hadn’t been in Atlanta in a very long time. It sure has changed a ton. Originally, I was going to help run the SJ Technologies booth. But, a speaker had to back out at the last minute and I was asked to fill the spot. I was working on a talk for ChefConf so I quickly finished that up and gave it to the good folks at DevOpsDays Atlanta. [Read More]

DevOpsDays Charlotte 2018 Ignite Talk on Go

All other DevOpsDays events should be put on notice. DevOpsDays Charlotte 2018 set the bar unattainably high for the quality of the venue and speaker line up. It’ll be insanely hard to beat the great folks who spoke in Charlotte this year. Almost every talk was a home run. The Red Ventures facility was also jaw dropping. Also, I don’t think we could have asked for a more inviting and welcoming speaker lounge either. [Read More]

Open Source 101 Raleigh 2018

I had the opportunity to attend and speak at Open Source 101 at NC State’s McKimmon Center for Extension & Continuing Education this past weekend. It’s always nice to visit Raleigh, NC and Red Hat Tower. I met several awesome attendees and speakers while I was in town too. The All Things Open team did an absolutely fantastic job at every facet of this conference. If you have the opportunity to attend one of these events you most definitely should! [Read More]

Orchestructure January 2018 Meetup

I spoke at the first Orchestructure Meetup of 2018. I have to admit, this is probably the smoothest run Meetup I’ve been a part of for quite some time. That’s not to say other Meetups weren’t well organized. But, Mario, Bob, and Jorge have their poop in a group. Orchestructure is one great Meetup. If you’re in Michigan, you’re missing out if you haven’t attended. Subscribe to DevOps’ish for updates on DevOps, Cloud Native, and Open Source news. [Read More]

DevOpsDays NYC 2018 Ignite Talk on Golang

I had an amazing experience at DevOpsDays NYC 2018. The organizers put together an all-star lineup. You can tell this meant a lot to the organizers by the quality of the event itself; it was top notch. Being a part of the DevOps community is absolutely amazing. I am always thrilled to get invites to DevOpsDays events; they’re so well done. Subscribe to DevOps’ish for updates on DevOps, Cloud Native, and Open Source news. [Read More]

Video: All Things Open 2017

As previously mentioned, I spoke at All Things Open. Today, the good folks at opensource.com released video from the event. I really appreciate Nirmal Mehta taking the time to brainstorm the idea for this talk after DevOpsDays Raleigh 2017. I also am very thankful to Jason Hibbets and the opensource.com team as well as Todd Lewis and the All Things Open team for giving me the opportunity to speak at such an awesome event. [Read More]
