I just returned from Interop 2016
in Las Vegas. This is a show that’s been taking place for 30 years–counting its predecessor events. I was speaking on The New Open Distributed Application Platform
. I’ll be doing a more complete write-up of this evolving presentation but it focuses on how the application platform has changed from one that’s server-centric (even if virtualized) to one that is more services and application-centric.
Next week (May 18), I’ll be at the MIT Sloan CIO Symposium. This is always a good event. Here’s a summary of what’s in store for 2016
. I’ll be doing a write-up of the event and I’ll also be doing a birds-of-a-feather at lunch.
The first week of June, I’ll be in New York speaking at CloudExpo–also on the New Platform. But already I’ve been writing down notes about changes that I want to make.
At the end of June, I’ll be off to DevOpsDays Silicon Valley and, by no means least, Red Hat Summit at the Moscone in San Francisco. Summit’s always a very busy but very fun weak and I hope that you’ll be able to join us.
I’ll be presenting at Summit on Getting Started with DevOps with Todd Barr as well as co-hosting a DevOps metrics BoF with William Henry. I’m also the overall captain for the IT strategy track
which will focus on people, processes, and technologies crucial to long-term business objectives. In this track we have a couple of “lessons learned” talks from Red Hat IT as well as Product and Technologies operations. I always learn a lot in these kind of sessions so I’m particularly looking forward to them myself.
