What we're about

ChatOps, a term coined by GitHub, is an approach to managing technical and business operations through a group chat room. ChatOps San Francisco is for the discussion and collaboration on all aspects of ChatOps including tools, security, and methodology.

Events will include one or two presentations of up to 30 minutes each, plus extra time for networking and chatting, or maybe even a little pair programming. If you're interested in speaking at an event or hosting an event, please get in touch using the "contact" button in the "organizers" section of the left sidebar. Topics that are appropriate for the group are anything directly or tangentially related to using a group chat as the interface for automation, workflows, team building, etc.

The talks generally require a basic understanding of ChatOps, so if you are just learning about the idea, it would be useful to do a little reading or watch a video or two before attending your first meetup. Some good resources to get started:

• ChatOps at Github (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NST3u-GjjFw), the first public talk on the subject by Jesse Newland

• The Rise of ChatOps (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6D5HgI4IH10), from our first meetup

• /r/chatops (https://www.reddit.com/r/chatops/), a subreddit with articles and discussion

The presentations at each meetup are live streamed and posted to the ChatOps San Francisco YouTube channel (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCAvvR4g9fodNAS61Ep_XnMg) afterwards. Be sure to check out the channel for all the great presentations from past meetups!
