DevOps Melbourne - Meetup #2

Announcing the headline speaker for the March meetup will be John Barton and gang from Envato:

"What we do culturally and technically at Envato that allows 8 developers to deploy 5 times a day to a Ruby on Rails application that receives around 18 million page requests a week... without anyone freaking out"

In addition to this we will be holding some lightning talks - each being just five minutes long.  Please contact me in advance to register your talk.

    Enjoyed all the talks, especially the one from Evanto. Startups have the luxury of doing the simplest thing that works until it doesn't any more, and it is always good to hear about how things are working in companies who can accept the risk of being ultra-agile, and have the smarts to capitalise on their ability to accept this risk.
    There were some questions I'd like to ask the speaker if he is kind enough to answer:
    - Do you guys pair program? What is your philosophy towards it (eg. always/never/it depends)?
    - You mentioned that you both feature switch and cut branches in git for new features. Is the method you use dependent on the size of a feature? Do you break the Continuous Integration rule of pushing to origin/master daily when you cut branches?
    - Do you run any selenium tests in the 10 minute suite that you run?
    - What (if any) automated tests are run on a developers desktop before they push? Or do they all run on your pimped up test box you mentioned?

    A great informal gathering of like-minded people. Would like to see more ops people there & to see a mix of ops and dev speakers.

    I thought the event was sensational. Very well organized, and the standard of the speakers was very, very good.

    Did not realize you could fit that many developers in one room ;-)
    Great turn up, will be trying to get some of the devs here to the next one for sure.

    Not sure why the short talks were run to hard cut off times, the video was neat and all but I'm much more interested in what speakers had to say than a song.

    Awesome meetup!

    FYI, "How Buildings Learn", book by Stewart Brand, mentioned by John Barton in his talk. Also made into a BBC series and available on Google Video, part 1 : http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=8639555925486210852#

    Looking to hold a set of lightning talks on the night. I figure we can allow 6-8 five-minute talks. Please get in touch with me directly to register interest.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
