DevOps In the Trenches

Richard Crowley (DevStructure) will be talking about the Blueprint CM tool, how it works, why it works that way, the unique workflow it encourages, and why he thinks it's better.

Noah Kantrowitz (Opscode) will talk about deploying production-scale web applications with Chef, using Django as an example. 

Matthew Kocher (Pivotal Labs) will talk about devops patterns he's found that work well with agile software development.  They're developers first at Pivotal, but on the web, everyone needs some understanding of ops. He'll explain how pairing, test driven infrastructure and collaboration with external ops resources allow them to improve operations and help ensure project success.

Pivotal Labs will host and sponsor us again, thanks guys!

    Actually, yes. I'll be giving a similar talk, though with more on the Python internals, at SF Python on September 14th. Damon Edwards recorded all three talks at this SF DevOps and said he'll be posting them on soon.

    Thanks, Richard! I'm really excited about Blueprint as a tool for bringing legacy configurations into my existing configuration management framework. I'm looking forward to working with it.
