I’ve been invited to speak at DevOps LA on Monday, Aug 27th. The title I’ve chosen is “The DevOps Transformation” but it will not be the talk I gave at LISA. Partly because I’ve already given that talk, and partly because I only have a 20-30 minute speaking slot. I’ll be looking beyond those fundamental principles and considering some new material, including work flow, routing, and conversion with the LEAN world at large. I will not discuss ITSM at length again.
I’ve also decided this is an amazing opportunity for me as an OpsDad… given that its a 24 hour trip for me (OAK to LAX is 1.5hrs flight time) I’ll be bringing my two eldest children (Nova 8yrs & Glenn 7yrs) along. As professionals its not often we can bring our children with us on a “business trip”, so I’m looking forward to giving them a really kool adventure. I strongly encourage all OpsDad’s included their kids whenever you have the ability to do so.
UPDATE: The event went great, thanks to everyone who attended. For those wanting the slides, here is the deck: DevOps Demystified
