Well worth attending as its presented by toast master Bozzie: - Failure Is Not An Option (It’s a Core Feature!) - James Boswell - CMD This talk examines the breadth and depth of DevOps through the lens of “failure”. Understanding failure is essential to gain the rewards DevOps offers. Including stories from industry leaders, customers and personal experience.
