ChatOps: The New Interface of #DevOps | @DevOpsSummit #BigData #IoT #Microservices

Basics of ChatOps, its origins & how teams who have adopted DevOps best practices are using it to deliver high quality software

ChatOps: The New Interface of DevOps
The modern software development landscape consists of best practices and tools that allow teams to deliver software in a near-continuous manner. By adopting a culture of automation, measurement and sharing, the time to ship code has been greatly reduced, allowing for shorter release cycles and quicker feedback from customers and users. Still, with all of these tools and methods, how can teams stay on top of what is taking place across their infrastructure and codebase? Hopping between services and command line interfaces creates context-switching that slows productivity, efficiency, and may lead to early burnout.

The teams and organizations that are leading the DevOps movement have turned to their chat client to provide a new interface. We are already in chat all day, sharing, collaborating, and conversing on what is taking place across all business units and projects. By moving tools and command line functionality into chat, we are able to create greater situational awareness and tribal knowledge.

In his session at DevOps Summit, Jason Hand, a DevOps Evangelist at VictorOps, will discuss the basics of ChatOps, its origins, and how teams who have fully adopted the DevOps best practices are using it to deliver high quality software quickly, deploy infrastructure safely, and manage incidents more efficiently than ever before.

Speaker Bio
Jason Hand is a DevOps Evangelist at VictorOps, organizer of DevOpsDays - Rockies, author of "ChatOps for Dummies," and host of a number of DevOps related events in the Denver/Boulder area. He has spent the last 8 months presenting and building content on a number of DevOps topics such as Blameless Post-mortems, ChatOps, and the value of context within incident management.

The @DevOpsSummit at Cloud Expo - to be held November 3-5, 2015, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, California - will expand the DevOps community, enable a wide sharing of knowledge, and educate delegates and technology providers alike. Recent research has shown that DevOps dramatically reduces development time, the amount of enterprise IT professionals put out fires, and support time generally. Time spent on infrastructure development is significantly increased, and DevOps practitioners report more software releases and higher quality.

DevOps Summit Power Panel | Balancing the Three Pillars of DevOps

In this @DevOpsSummit Power Panel - moderated by Andi Mann (founder of @Sageable) - Shannon Williams, co-founder of Rancher Labs; Haseeb Budhani, co-founder and CEO of Soha; and Dalibor Siroky, Director and co-founder at Plutora; discussed how to balance these three pillars of DevOps, where to focus attention (and resources), where organizations might slip up with the wrong focus, how to manage change and risk in all three areas, what is possible and what is not, where to start, and especially how new structures, processes, and technologies can help drive a new DevOps culture.

Microservices & IoT Power Panel at @DevOpsSummit
Buzzword Alert: Microservices and IoT at a DevOps conference? What could possibly go wrong?

In this Power Panel at @DevOpsSummit, moderated by Jason Bloomberg, president of Intellyx, panelists Roberto Medrano, Executive Vice President at Akana; Lori MacVittie, Evangelist for F5 Networks; and Troy Topnik, ActiveState's Technical Product Manager; and Otis Gospodnetić, founder of Sematext; peeled away the buzz and discuss the important architectural principles behind implementing IoT solutions for the enterprise. As remote IoT devices and sensors become increasingly intelligent, they become part of our distributed cloud environment, and we must architect and code accordingly. At the very least, you'll have no problem filling in your buzzword bingo cards.

Containers & Microservices Expo To Be Colocated with @DevOpsSummit Silicon Valley, November 3-5, 2015 at the Santa Clara Convention Center, CA
SYS-CON Events announced on June 9, 2015 at the Javits Center that the 2nd "Containers & Microservices Conference" will take place November 3-5, 2015, at the Santa Clara Convention Center, Santa Clara, CA, and the "Third Containers & Microservices Conference" will take place June 7-9, 2016, at Javits Center in New York City.

Containers and microservices have become topics of intense interest throughout the cloud developer and enterprise IT communities.

Microservices focuses on the business and technology of the software architecture design pattern, in which complex applications are composed of small, independent processes communicating with each other using language-agnostic APIs.

Containers are not being considered for the first time by the cloud community, but a current era of re-consideration has pushed them to the top of the cloud agenda.

Rather than just stuff an OS into a container, for example, developers and deployers should consider a spectrum of microservices and what they can do.

New York and Silicon Valley Sponsors and Exhibitors
During our last New York and Silicon Valley events, over 12,000 (audited) delegates registered and participated in the world's largest DevOps, Containers, and Microservices show, colocated with Cloud Expo.
