Building the Baltimore DevOps Community – Nathen Harvey (@nathenharvey) – The worldwide DevOps community is strong and growing every year. Last year there were 42 DevOps Days conferences. These conferences are all organized by local community volunteers who are passionate about DevOps. The first DevOps Days in Baltimore is an inflection point for the local community. Let’s look back on the history of DevOps through the eyes of someone who’s been a community participant from the early days of the movement. As we do so, we’ll look at some tips you can takeaway to help make sure your DevOps Days Baltimore experience is delightful. We’ll also discuss ways that you can help build and participate in the local DevOps community. Hear about some successful teams are incorporating lessons learned from open source, DevOps, and other communities. Leave with some ideas of things to try in your own environment. Be prepared to learn, be prepared to make new friends, and, most importantly, be prepared to be surprised.
