All of us here at DevOps.com have been very busy. In addition to adding some new writers and great new content, we have been working “outside the 4 walls of the website”. Here is an update on what’s new:
1. Camp DevOps – We held our first Camp DevOps event last week in beautiful Boulder, Colorado at the University of Colorado, Boulder Campus. It was a great event featuring a lot of great sessions. Sanjeev Sharma of IBM, author of DevOps for Dummies (and a DevOps.com contributor) kicked things off with a great keynote. Andi Mann of CA had a great talk on implanting DevOps from the top down. Rajat Bhargava and Topher Marie of JumpCloud also had some great insights in their sessions. Rich Mogull’s “KickaaS Security” session was a great look at the top things you need in terms of security. Another very popular track was Craftsy VP of engineering, Matthew Boeckman’s using S3 and Glacier for backup. There were some other great sessions but I can mention them all here. You can check out the Camp DevOps website for the full agenda.
We will be conducting more Camp DevOps in the near future in cities throughout the US. Some will be in conjunction with larger events or conferences within conferences, others will stand alone events. Stay tuned for more details.
I was asked the question of whether Camp DevOps competes with DevOps Days. Short answer, no. We support DevOps Days and the culture they represent. Camp DevOps shares with DevOps Days the desire to advance DevOps, but takes a slightly different tack. We will have both highly technical, as well as business orientated tracks. Camp DevOps will feature both learning on DevOps culture, as well as tools. We will also be adding more exclusive Camp DevOps activities to the events in the future.
2. Gluecon 2014 – Camp DevOps Boulder was held in conjunction with Gluecon in nearby Broomfield. Gluecon was fantastic this year and also featured a full DevOps lineup. I was the moderator of the DevOps tracks on day one. Again some real quality presentations on Ansible, Saltstack and more. We will be posting video here soon.
Look for more announcements regarding Gluecon and Camp DevOps soon.
Compuware APM – I was invited as a guest on a webinar by CompuwareAPM in an intro to DevOps. The webinar was hosted by Steve Wilson. It was a good conversation about several interesting areas of DevOps. The recorded version of the webinar will be available shortly and we will post a link on our events page.
SecDevOps – I am joining Andrew Storms of CloudPassage to discuss SecDevOps, the new black. You can register for this here. Andrew is a really bright fellow that is very well known in the security space and this promises to be a great webinar!
