My next event of note is CloudExpo in New York City on June 8. I’ll be speaking on The New Platform: You Ain’t Seen Nothing Yet. The focus is on the containerized deployment platform that is emerging from a Cambrian Explosion of innovation associated with containers, orchestration systems (e.g. Kubernetes), DevOps, microservices, and more. It probably speaks to the ferment in this general area that, even though I’ve given variants on this presentation before, I seem to end up rewriting significant chunks of it each time.
I’ll be in the city for a few days so if you want to get together, let me know. (For some reason, my trips to New York always seem to come in bunches; I just got back from a weekend there.) To my somewhat annoyance, I’m going to have to drive down this time–which I don’t really like to do–as I’ll be heading for a reunion at Cornell’s Johnson School of Management right afterwards.
Otherwise, last week I made a systematic effort to nail down potential events through the fall. My ultimate schedule will depend somewhat on which speaking proposals get accepted but at least it’s a start.
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.
