The OpenStack Summit is in Austin this year, finally! So, I of course submitted several talks. Go over and vote for them – I think that does something helpful, who the hell knows?
Here’s the talks:
- DevOps for Normals – what’s happening as donkeys adopt DevOps – I gave one my first “state of DevOps” style talks back at the Atlanta OpenStack Summit in 2014. We’d just done a little DevOps study at 451 research. Now I give these types of talks a lot, updating them each time with the latest collection of charts and advice.
- Cloud Native Promises in the Land of Continuously Delivered Microservices – this is the talk I have going over exactly what a “cloud platform” is, why you’d care, and what it does for it. More than anything, it’s one of the many attempts to frame up what cloud is: a stack of stuff to help make software delivery better, put another way, the “infrastructure” that makes continuous delivery possible.
- Developer Marketing and Relations: Convincing the “Kingmakers” to give a crap about you – I’ve been trying to put together a panel to talk about developer relations for awhile now. As you may recall, I brain-dumped on that topic into the one (public) long-form report I did at 451 Research. For this panel, I picked a developer (Charles Lowell, The Frontside), a tech journo (Alex Williams, The New Stack), a marketer (Melissa Smolensky, CoreOS), a straight up developer relations person (David Flanders, OpenStack Foundation), and whatever it is I do. This seemed like a good bunch to go over why you’d want to do developer relations, what people do, and what works and doesn’t work.
I’ll be at the Summit regardless, but it’d sure be dandy to do some of the above too.
