This is my first time attending the tutorial day at a Velocity conference. It’s a small world as I’ve already met someone I met at DevOpsDays Atlanta and a couple of people I met at a Kanban for DevOps workshop back in Santa Clara a few weeks ago.
The day wrapped up with ignite sessions. Somehow I ended up presenting and had a lot of fun. The great thing for the audience is that the range of presentation topics varies wildly and yesterday was no exception. As my ignite was the least serious of the proposals I got to go last and presented Game of Thrones: DevOps Edition. Fortunately the audience enjoyed the topic and there were a fair few Game of Thrones fans in the audience. I’ll admit that presenting ignite sessions is becoming something I am starting to enjoy.
If you enjoy getting information in an entertaining format then I encourage you to attend our October DevOps Drive-In webcast which is a DevOps panel starring Damon Edwards from DTO Solutions and Dave West from Tasktop. Damon and Dave participated in an extremely entertaining panel at the Serena xChange13 user conference that was very well received. You can see the webcast here.
