Disclaimer: I dislike “devops” as a term in general. The tools and practices that are associated with “devops” however (puppet, chef, continuous deployment, automation of ops, etc) I am a very big fan of.
As you might guess, the subject of the workshop will be primarily focused on Jenkins with a bit of Gerrit thrown in for good measure. Unlike my talk at the Jenkins User Conference, this will be much more demo/workshop oriented.
Unfortunately I will not have enough time (2 hours) to really run things like a workshop and engage with everybody on a 1:1 level. Due to the time constraints, it will be much more of a protracted-demo with slides intermixed and Q&A interspersed.
In other words, I’m not sure how it’s going to turn out, but I know the subject matter well enough that I think we’ll be able to get a lot of information across in the time allotted.
If you’re going to be in Chicago, you’ve only got a few more days to register for the early bird discount, so get that locked down!
See you there!
