Gene Kim to Host DevOps ‘Luminaries Night’ Reception During Conference
PORTLAND, Ore., June 9, 2016 – IT Revolution (http://itrevolution.com), the industry leader for advancing DevOps, today announced it will be offering the first look of its soon-to-be-released “DevOps Handbook” as a special bonus to all attendees at DevOps Enterprise Summit London 2016 (http://events.itrevolution.com/eu/). As the premier industry conference for leaders of large, complex organizations implementing DevOps in the UK and Continental Europe, DevOps Enterprise Summit (DOES16) London is expected to sell out and is scheduled for June 30-July 1 at the Hilton London Metropole. Tickets for the conference are going quickly, but are still available at: (http://bit.ly/doesldnreg).
Following in the footsteps of the popular book, “The Phoenix Project,” this fall, Gene Kim, Jez Humble, Patrick Debois and John Willis will release “The DevOps Handbook: How to Create World-class Agility, Reliability, and Security in Technology Organizations.” The book is designed to be a prescriptive guide, describing the technical practices, cultural norms and architecture required to replicate the amazing transformation that Bill Palmer and team performed at Parts Unlimited in “The Phoenix Project.” Co-authors Gene Kim, Patrick Debois and John Willis will be in attendance at the conference, and IT Revolution will host a signing in its booth at the event.
“We are excited to offer the first look of the upcoming “DevOps Handbook” for the attendees of DOES16 London,” said Kim. “Registrants of the conference will be the first to own a preview copy before its official release later this fall. It promises to reinforce all the great real-world examples of DevOps in action that registrants will see during our upcoming two-day Summit.”
In addition, on Thursday, June 30, IT Revolution will host a “Luminaries Night” during the conference’s evening reception. “We’re assembling some of the people that the industry admires most who have helped shape the DevOps movement since the very beginning,” Kim said. In addition to the outstanding conference speakers, Dominica DeGrandis, Patrick Debois, Damon Edwards, Simon Morris, Dan North, James Smith, Steven Thair, John Willis and more will be available to meet and speak with attendees. The event will take place in the Monarch Suite of the Hilton London Metropole Hotel from 5 to 7 p.m. BST.
IT Revolution also is hosting a chance to win a one-hour “Ask Me Anything” session with Gene Kim during DOES16 London. Attendees can spend the hour asking any questions they wish, such as, “Where did the stories from The Phoenix Project come from?” or “If there was one thing you could change about DevOps, what would it be and why?”
IT Revolution and Premier Sponsor HPE Software are excited to present the inaugural DOES16 London event, a conference for the leaders of large, complex organizations implementing DevOps principles and practices. The goal is to give leaders the tools and practices they need to develop and deploy software faster and to win in the marketplace. The full program is available online and can be found here: (http://bit.ly/doesldnagenda).
