Re: [ruby-112] Reaching out to DevOps folks

So I have to ask---  what do DevOps people think of ansible? It seems like a different tool serving a particular function, but it's often lumped in there. 

Do you have to be using puppet or chef to be considered DevOps?

I think the fact that people get confused about what DevOps is is a great reason to have a wide open meetup about it! :D

As someone with very, ah, "passable" ops skills and even less of a predisposition for specific tools or complete idea of putting together a full working process (which is where the real fun comes in), the most enticing idea for me would be a meetup that could bring together people doing things all sorts of different ways, perhaps a couple of presentations where someone gives a focused overview of a successful system they've put in place, and a chance for beers and chats afterwards so the Chef guys can meet the "Chef sounds cool" guys, and the puppet guys can meet the puppet guys, etc...  just throwing my 2 cents out there. :)

@Michael, I have to admit I'm curious to hear why managing a DevOps team is a terrible idea... sounds like a good story.

Puppet meetup group - I'm not currently trying for a full blown Devops one(people seem to get confused what Devops is), but there'll be a round table afterwards I talk about hiera.

I'm open to suggestions however, but the one Sean was doing didn't have very many presenters.

Is that for the DevOps group reboot or a new puppet group?

For those interested/invested in puppet, I have a separate puppet meetup I'm attempting to start as well.

I would be very interested in meeting up for beers and helping get a community started in Vancouver.

I work for Demonware who do quite a bit of DevOps work from Vancouver to provide SaaS solutions for AAA video games.
In fact I used to manage a DevOps team before we realized what a terrible idea that is.

There are definitely a few other companies doing interesting DevOps work in Vancouver - ActiveState are working heavily on Stackato, Joyent have an office (acquisition of Layerboom), the lead developer behind Sensu is in Vancouver, one of the original developers behind Xen is doing something interesting around SDN & Storage with convergent.io etc etc.
I also bumped into a few other local "DevOps" folks from other local companies at DevOpsDays & Velocity last year.
