During my second day at DevOpsDays DC, I had the opportunity to catch up with a couple more industry thought leaders. First up, John Willis, (@botchagalupe) DevOps Days core organizer and co-author the upcoming “DevOps Cookbook”.
In this episode of DevOps Leadership Series, John highlights his first introduction to DevOps and the journey it has taken him on, and what about the current state of DevOps makes him excited. He says DevOps is really happening everywhere. Today large organizations and CIO’s of government agencies are now experimenting with DevOps at all stages. He references legacy companies that do not necessarily have “aggressive IT”, and how they now want to share their DevOps experiences.
After that, I had the chance to chat with Leon Fayer, (@papa_fire) Vice President at OmniTI, following his DevOps Days DC presentation. Leon illustrates the things he found most interesting from the DevOpsDays Conference. He noted that a lot of people have started to pay attention to the monetary strategies, and how to monitor from top-to-bottom in a DevOps fashion. Leon was happy to see that people are now more generally interested in how to generate and collect data more accurately to solve their problems.
