Tech in Motion: DevOps

Tech in Motion-San Francisco is excited to announce it's 12th meetup event in the Bay Area.

We are hosting a DevOps Meetup that will blow your mind! 

Meet the Speakers:

Yaakov Nemoy came from a background in Open Source advocacy and technology. He is now building a DevOps company that is by engineers and for engineers. He likes to dabble with Puppet, Chef, AWS, working on multi-homed and globally designed websites and can talk your ear off about scaling. He also consults with web shops to improve the Operations process to enable developers spend more time developing. His favorite website is the kind that doesn't wake him up in the night with pager calls. When he isn't working or when he is working, he herds cats and enjoys his scotches.

Feel like you're getting too caught up in the ops weeds? How many servers do you SSH to daily? We're going to talk about what DevOps is and isn't. Come understand what a well built process looks like. If you're ops, dev or even a designer, Yaakov will explain the questions you should be asking and what you should know so you can focus on doing the work you love.

Daniel Nowak is currently a Technical Operations Engineer at Technorati Media.  He uses his previous career in customer service to deliver outstanding support to both his internal and external customers.  He believes that if your DevOps job is waking you up at 3:00 AM for downed servers you are doing it wrong. He believes working with your operations and development teams can restore work life balance while still delivering an outstanding product. In his free time you can find him either teaching at the local hacker space or participating in high adventure activities.

Delivering a fast moving exceptional product is challenging for both developers and operations. Both developers and operations have different rolls that often put them at odds with one another. It is the roll of DevOps to to bridge the gap between these two teams and unify them as one great team delivering a great product. With the right person in this roll you can create an awesome team that produces amazing results.

David Kramer is currently the Sr. DevOps Manager at Jive Software.  David has over 14 years of experience in Systems Engineering and Technical Operations. He has worked in avariety of industries including Finance, HealthCare, Retail, andTelCo. David has worked for many companies from large enterprises (PWC, Well Fargo, and Red Hat) to smaller startups ( and Mytrus, Inc.). David is an avid Open Source and DevOps evangelist and really believes in open collaboration and helping others. David is a Red Hat Certified Architect and was named Red Hat Certified Professional of the Year Runner Up – North America Region in 2012. He won this award for the work he did at Mytrus running the first virtual Clinical Trial and it was done entirely on an Open Source stack. David has a degree in Management Information Systems from the University of Arizona. In his free time he is a passionate Magic The Gathering gamer and loves Manchester United.
