Choose Your Own Adventure with Adam Jacob

  • Nov 21, 2011 · 6:30 PM

Adam Jacob (@adamhjk), Chief Product Officer & Co-founder, Opscode will lead us on an adventure like no other!

This talk focuses on letting the audience guide the presentation, and serves as a kind of round-up for topics such as: infrastructure automation, cloud computing, configuration management tools, NoSQL, CAP theorem and scalable web application, building open source communities and funding a start up. The presentation contains 16 different segments, with each segment being a 5 minute round-up of the topic. The audience calls out which topic they want to hear, and is encouraged to ask questions as they come up.

    Adam is a genius and busy mind indeed. I wish that I could spout off convincing prose about any topic at will. Glad I went.
