With the need to build, test and release software more rapidly, frequently and reliably the concept of DevOps has never been more popular, and to a degree, more misunderstood.
DevOps skills are consistently highly sought after and in huge demand, yet at the same time little education and training is available in both the professional world and in higher education.
This meeting will address both issues for both entry level professionals and those more advanced. It will feature:
1. An introduction to DevOps, in language attendees can understand with real world examples.
2. An overview and hands-on demo's of some of the best practices, tools and processes that result in automating software delivery and infrastructure changes.
3. An interactive Q&A
Our speaker/instructor for the evening will be Chris Short, a Global DevOps Engineer with more than 20 years of experience. Chris organizes the Research Triangle NC's DevOps user group and he writes for and contributes to multiple well known technology media outlets, including DZone, Opensource.com, and many more.
We'll break the evening up into three sections, to allow for easy digestion of the material presented.
Food and drinks will be served and lots of swag will be available, as always.
Doors open at 6:00 pm, programming begins at 6:30 pm.
