For me and many others the best way we learn about DevOps is to hear others who have set about on this journey. For three years Gene Kim’s DevOps Enterprise Summit has been powered by hearing one DevOps Transformation experience after the next. The new DevOps Handbook has over 40 case studies of DevOps transformations. We here at DevOps.com will be offering some great DevOps transformation stories this month that I wanted to share with you.
First of all Monday afternoon (2pm eastern time) we will be having a webinar, “Leading Change at DevOps Enterprise Summit San Francisco“. You can register by clicking the title or clicking here. The webinar will discuss leading DevOps transformation and features a pretty impressive cast:
J. Paul Reed
Managing Partner, Release Engineering Approaches
J. Paul Reed has over fifteen years’ experience in the trenches as a build/release engineer, working with such storied companies as VMware, Mozilla, Postbox, Symantec, and Salesforce.
Next week DevOps.com will be out at the DevOps Enterprise Summit, where we will once again have a video booth and will be interviewing most of the speakers at DOES, as well as many guests and friends from the DevOps scene. If you are attending and would like to sit for a video interview stop by during Monday or Wednesday of the show.
Our videos should be up in a few days afterwards, so if you can’t make it to San Francisco be sure to catch our interviews of the speakers and others.
Later this month we have another webinar that I am really excited about. It is again about DevOps transformation experiences. It features:
Sanjeev Sharma, is an internationally known DevOps, and Cloud Transformation thought leader, technology executive, and published author. Sanjeev’s industry experience includes tenures as CTO and Worldwide Technical Sales Leader, Acquisition Integration Technical Leader, and IT Architect. As an IBM Distinguished Engineer, Sanjeev is recognized at the highest levels of IBM’s exclusive core of technical leaders.
You can register for this webinar here.
Beyond these there is IBM InterConnect on the horizon, CA World, where I will be speaking as well, also in November and our own DevOps Connect: CD Summits this month and next in Austin, LA and Seattle.
So yes indeed DevOps Transformations are everywhere. There is much to be learned from hearing these stories. Sometimes more from the mistakes they made then from the success. Check these out if like me you are interested in these tales from the front lines.
