• Dev(Coffee)Ops Hartford
    We all have something valuable to add to the discussions about DevOps. And there's value just in meeting face to face with the greater community. So I am scheduling this as a regular meetup (a little last minute because I am not very good at calendars) as a low-requirement high-participation way to keep the connections in our community. I will be facilitating a Lean Coffee (http://leancoffee.org/) meeting one Tuesday morning a month for now. Lean Coffee meetings only require that you show up and that someone brings sticky notes; there's no need to find speakers, food, facilities to host, projectors and all other accouterments. My hope is that this can continue even when I am not available to start it. So come join our FIRST CoffeeOps version of DevOpsCT in Hartford!

  • Dev(Coffee)Ops Hartford -- DevOpsDays Edition
    This week's meetup will coincide with DevOpsDays Hartford 2018! What Timing! I've shifted the schedule and location a bit so that it works out better. This is taking place at Day 2 of DevOpsDays Hartford right during the breakfast hour. I'm going to try to see if we can grab some of the patio tables so that even if you don't have a ticket to the event, you can join us for coffee. But if you're at DevOpsDays, you can come join the fun a little early and stay for the main event! (Also if you're interested in joining the big discussion October 16th and 17th ALL DAY, visit https://devopsdays.org/events/2018-hartford for more info!)

  • NHIO-From Zero to Cloud-Based Service: Tech Stack, Architecture. Lessons Learned
    This is a meetup hosted by our friends at NewHaven.io, so if you've already RSVP'd there (https://www.meetup.com/newhavenio/events/250310539/), there's no need to do it again here. That said, I'm all about bringing technologists together rather than building more silos and since there is topic overlap, this will replace our May meetup this month, so come add to the community and conversation! [Original Description] Lysten (https://ilysten.com) is multi-cloud service running on Azure and Amazon Web Services. The developer will briefly demonstrate Lysten, discuss the design and development process, platform choices, architecture, costs and share learnings made throughout the development process. The following will be discussed: · Technical commentary on application architecture · Comments on platform choices and lock-in · Trade-offs associated with using 3rd party APIs and services · Application development and operations practices for a solo developer · Learnings on architecture, development practices, cloud costs, operations and economics About the speaker: Matthew Krieger is a technologist and executive with 20 years’ experience in Information Technology and manufacturing. Matt is an Advisory Chief Technology Officer for non-profits and VP of Technology with manufacturer Cober, Inc. where he is responsible for engineering and business development. Previously Matt held senior IT leadership positions at Time, Inc. and The Reader’s Digest Association. Matt serves on the board of two non-profit organizations and is a business mentor with SCORE. This is part of an ongoing series, "Toward a Unified View of IT Infrastructure" presented by Device42. Food and non-alcoholic beverages will be provided.

  • Organizing for the Future
    • What we'll do Want to be a part of something instead of just being along for the ride? Now is your chance to shape the future of DevOps CT. We're going to be planning for the future of what DevOps CT looks like! We've all got ideas and we want the group to grow and include the broader Hartford Tech Community. There will be some brainstorming about how to drive repeat attendance, where we can meet, whether we should charge a cover for food/drinks/location charges, how to drive new content, code of conduct, and probably more things! • What to bring Bring your opinions and your ideas and a willingness to help out. • Important to know This is a free event for anyone as part of DevOps CT to show up and actively contribute back to the community. Everyone is invited, the more voices, the better we'll be.

  • Managing Infrastructure
    Hey we're at City Steam this month with food and drink sponsored! Managing infrastructure is a hard problem. Especially as the demands from ever-faster release cycles, and the power of distributed and abstracted systems come into the picture. For our usual format we will have a guest speaker with discussion to follow, so come prepared to discuss all aspects of infrastructure management whether you're dealing with on-prem, private cloud or public cloud offerings. I'm sure discussion of the latest security issues will be welcome also. We'll have a speaker from Nutanix offering his take on the issue: Mark Lavi, Dev Ops Solution Engineer: Technology advances in infrastructure tend to be focused on individual components and while certain speeds and feeds are addressed, the operational silos that remain continue to be a challenge for meeting business demand, especially at the speed of DevOps. While cloud is a way to achieve on-demand infrastructure, it can become another silo in itself, and IT administrators continue to struggle in their delivery to meet demands of run/build/test environments. Newer solutions aim to bridge these gaps and take the abstraction further, beyond making storage, compute, and network easier to consume and scale to meet growth needs more closely, and transforming application lifecycle management into a self-service marketplace experience with deployments that look the same and span across on-premises and cloud environments. ---- Our sponsors: Food and drink is being graciously provided by Northway Technologies and Nutanix. About Nutanix: Nutanix is now providing an application-centric way of dealing with business demand, spanning on-premises infrastructure and cloud infrastructure to give ultimate choice and resilience for running business critical workloads. About Northway Technologies: Northway Technologies is a 100% Woman Owned Nutanix Solution Partner focused on Data Center Solutions. Our mission is to help our clients navigate the ever-changing IT landscape with a consultative approach. We bring forward comprehensive solutions that empower our clients with flexible options which drive results. Photo by William Bout on Unsplash

  • CT Tech Workers Holiday Office Party
    Registration for this event is on The Eventbrite Page (https://www.eventbrite.com/e/ct-remote-workers-holiday-office-party-tickets-41309333328), not this meetup. This ensures we have an accurate head-count for Food and beverage. Inspired by conversation with other remote workers, I wanted to build an Office Party for the rest of us, but in true DevOps spirit, everyone is invited to come! RSVP HERE: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/ct-remote-workers-holiday-office-party-tickets-41309333328 We'll gather at The Kinsman Brewing Company in Plantsville to share food and drink. Local craft beer is on tap, but there will are non-alcoholic and non-beer beverages available. Food will also be provided. Elastic (http://elastic.co), as a fully distributed company themselves, loved the idea and is kind enough to help sponsor our event, so food is on them, and depending on budget, so too are probably a drink or two. Come out and meet folks in tech from all over Connecticut. It's the season of good will and camaraderie, let's get together in this cold and darkest month to grow our greater tech community. Invite all your friends as we'll be sending out invitations to all the local Connecticut meetups. Again, please RSVP on The Eventbrite Page (https://www.eventbrite.com/e/ct-remote-workers-holiday-office-party-tickets-41309333328) so we have a single record for headcount for food. You will be unable to RSVP on this page.

  • Organizing Organizers & Volunteers for DevOpsDays Hartford 2018!
    • What we'll do This is the first call for participation in 2018's DevOpsDays Hartford event! It's hard to believe it, but it is already time to start planning for next year and we want you (yes, you personally) to help make it happen. This meeting is to build our group of organizers & volunteers, get us all connected, and start working on those couple of tasks that we need to be thinking about already for next year's event. Think about where you might want to help out, not limited to: — Speaker Organization — Sponsor Recruitment & Organization — Website Updates — Social Media & Public Communications — Site Logistics — Video Recording • What to bring — You — Your opinions — Your ideas — Whatever way you want to capture those ideas and contact information so we can coordinate over the next year • Important to know We'd love to have you there! The plan is to meet up at City Steam for a relaxed time of food, drink and hashing out ideas but if enough people are interested we may alter this, stay tuned as the date gets closer.
