What is this whole DevOps thing you've heard about? It somehow involves developers and sysadmins, but what is this mythical beast and how do you ride it?
This session will show you what DevOps is all about from a conceptual and technological level, and dig into the benefits to you, your team, and your company.
It serves as a (hopefully interesting) 101-level survey of the content you can expect at DevOpsDays Minneapolis in July.
If you've attended any DevOpsDays events in the past or already practice DevOps, please join to share your perspective on how it works for you and learn what others are doing.
Donnie was most recently a senior analyst and "resident Ph.D." at RedMonk, where he researched the art & science of software creation and its usage by developers, data scientists, DevOpsy folks, and everyone in between. His background is diverse, including stints in science (Mayo Clinic), open-source software (Gentoo Linux), IT infrastructure, and journalism.
He's a highly experienced speaker and writer, having spent nearly his entire career in science and technology doing a lot of both.
If you buy him a good beer or coffee, he might tell you about what's next.
