Some of you may be aware that we have published a full blown media kit including an editorial calendar for the rest of 2015. For the month of April our focus is Rugged DevOps. It started yesterday with a great post by David Geer, Rugged DevOps: From Idea to Automation to Impact. It will continue all month with stories around infosecurity and DevOps. At the end of the month we will pull these all together into a Rugged DevOps special edition available to all of our newsletter subscribers.
But that is not all we are doing with Rugged DevOps. We are also publishing an Ebook that will be available RSA Conference week, April 19th. The EBook written by our own Ericka Chickowski will take a deep dive on the intersection of security and DevOps. We will also be printing 1000 copies of the book which will be distributed at our various activities at RSA Conference. In case you are not already aware, here is what we have planned for RSA Conference week:
DevOps Connect: SecDevOps Edition– Monday, April 20th – 9am to 5pm, Moscone Center – Featuring keynotes by Gene Kim, Josh Corman, Jez Humble and over a dozen other top names in DevOps and Security, this events pre-registration is already filled up. However, seating is on a first come, first serve basis and open to all RSA badge holders. So come early or try later in the day if there are any open seats. If you are interested in DevOps and infosec, this promises to be a don’t miss event.
DevOps Wine-ing Event – The after party for the DevOps Connect conference, the DevOps Wine-ng event is a tradition started by Josh Corman and the Sonatype team. This year’s event is sponsored by Sonatype, Puppet Labs and DevOps.com. In order to gain admission to the event you need an invite or pre-registration from one of the sponsors. DevOps.com will be offering invites in the next week. Most of the speakers as well as DevOps community and InfoSec community members will mingle in a relaxed atmosphere.
DevOps.com “Rugged DevOps breakfast” – 7am to 9am, Tuesday morning at Jillians, the breakfast celebrates the official release of our Rugged DevOps Ebook. The breakfast and Ebook are sponsored by Incapsula and Evident.io. There are only a few slots left to attend this event, so if you would like to join us for breakfast early register now at http://www.eventbrite.com/e/devopscom-presents-rugged-devops-breakfast-rsa-conference-registration-16228701483?ref=ebtnebregn.
In addition to these DevOps related events, I of course will be helping to produce (along with a great team of Jennifer Leggio, Mike Rothman and Rich Mogull) the 9th annual Security Bloggers Meet up and Blogger Awards. This event is open only to those who write or podcast about infosecurity. It is usually a highlight of RSA Conference week. If you do write about security and have not been invited, write me at firstname.lastname@example.org with where you write and we can try to get you an invite.
Beyond that I along with my good friend Jody Brazil, CEO of Firemon will be hosting a peer-to-peer session on Thursday at 10:20am, Continuous Network Compliance: Finding Flaws and Betting Futures. It should be a good discussion looking at the idea of Continuous Security. P2P sessions only sit 25 to 35 people so come early to make sure you have a seat for that one.
On top of all of this I will be live blogging RSA Conference here on DevOps.com, so stay tuned for that.
BTW, last month’s topic was “Containerization”. We are in the process of gathering up all of the great articles we had around this topic last month. We will package this content into a PDF document that again will be available to our newsletter subscribers. You can subscribe to our newsletter in the right hand sidebar of this page.
