Things have been very busy at DevOps.com these past weeks. After a hectic first month, we are trying to execute on some of our ideas around building DevOps.com into a valuable asset and linchpin of the DevOps community. To that end I wanted to hit on three initiatives that we have kicked off over the past weeks here:
1. Camp DevOps @Gluecon 2014 – Our very first conference held in conjunction with the popular Glue Conference. Camp DevOps will be held Tuesday, May 20th at the beautiful Atlas Building in the University of Colorado. We have a great lineup of speakers including Sanjeev Sharma of IBM, JP Morgenthal, Rich Mogull and many more. We are also going to do our first Hello World sessions where attendees will get hands on training on some key products. Admission including meals is just $49.99 and you receive a $100 dollar credit for Gluecon. If you are already registered for GlueCon admission is free, but you still have to register. Head over to CampDevOps.com for more details and registration information.
We will be announcing other locations and dates for future Camp DevOps soon.
2. DevOps.com Business Directory – Something we realized in doing our research around DevOps.com is that there was really no directory of all of the companies that offer DevOps related tools and services. So we started the DevOps.com business directory. Regular listings are free. If your company is already listed (we listed about 50 companies or so), feel free to go in and claim your listing. Edit, change or upgrade it to make it look the way you want. The idea is that someone looking for a particular tool or service can find potential solutions in one easy directory. You can view and edit directory listings at https://devops.com/business-directory/.
3. DevOps Job Board @DevOps.com – Any perusal of Google Alerts on DevOps or even twitter search on #DevOps will make it obvious that there are a lot of DevOps jobs out there. Whether you are of the belief that DevOps is a real job title or not, there is no denying the need for people with DevOps skills. We are launching a DevOps job board this week on DevOps.com. Right now it is just the functionality and not dressed up with graphics and stuff. But you can see the job listings (we have 3 or so jobs listed) at Devops.com/jobs. From the menu on the right of the page, you can add new jobs, search etc.
We are offering free listings on the job board for the rest of this month, so if you are trying to hire someone with DevOps skils or a DevOps title, feel free to list your job. The job board is not just for full time positions either. You can list part-time, consulting and other types of jobs as well related to DevOps.
4. Media sponsorships for MongoDB World and DevOps Summit at Cloud Expo – We will be providing coverage from the show for both of these great events, as well as feature stories leading up to them. They are both in NYC in June. We will have more information on both of these shortly.
We have other exciting new features and events planned for the coming weeks and months as well.
Of course we will continue with the great content and blogs on all things DevOps on a daily basis. We are always looking for new writers, so if you feel you have what it takes contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
