DevOps LA on Aug 27th

Posted on August 18, 2012

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
