Summary of presentation:

A true story about the trials and tribulations of an Operations team during a period of extreme growth. A team sinking in unremitting requests and expedited issues. A heroic team who began to track work, measure capability and push back on the demand. We’ll examine the three metrics that mattered to this team, the failures along the way, and the forum used to influence the desired outcome.

Space, food and drinks are sponsored by MailChimp (thanks!).

    Really looking forward to a formal presentation on Kanban. I haven't studied it since B-school (it is heavily used in operational management). Looking forward to learning about its adaptation to software teams.

    Also my company (Tourbuzz) is looking for our first full-time DevOps hire, so if you're in the market for a new opportunity please come find me to chat!

    I really wanted to be there for this. I had even contacted Ms. DeGrandis directly last year about holding such an event on the east coast and hopefully in ATL. However, I recently started a new job and just can't make it. :-(
