2023 DevOps Conference Speakers I recently attended the 2023 DevOps Days Nashville conference in Tennessee, and it was an incredible experience. As with all DevOps Days conferences, the themes and speakers were decided by the local organizers, which made for a unique and diverse range of sessions. On the first day of the conference, I attended some fantastic sessions that provided some great ideas that I can use with my clients.
Live Recording See the following youtube video for a live demo recording of my talk. Overview Welcome to day one of Azure Spring Cleaning 2023!. Azure Static Web Apps have been generally available for about one and a half years now, and I’ve been excited about this service since day one. Professionally, I help customers reduce software delivery complexity, so for me, Static Web Apps are an amazing idea that reduces the time needed to get services up and running.
Richard Presenting LMAO Helps During Outages In 2022, I had a fantastic year of reconnecting with my passions, meeting new individuals, delivering presentations, and gaining knowledge from experienced professionals. To conclude my travels and speaking engagements for the year, I had the privilege of journeying to Florida and delivering a talk at DevOps Days Tampa. Having attended DevOps conferences for many years, I was thrilled to create an engaging presentation that encouraged collaboration and prompted attendees to reflect on critical considerations when preparing for on-call duties.
A few days ago the opportunity to joined a Blacks United In Leading Tech speakers panel event to discuss “The truth about Black Consultants”. This was my first event with this group, it was a great conversation we talked about our personal journeys in the industry of consulting while sharing valuable insights and advice around some key areas of interest: Transferable skills for various positions in consulting. How to set the right expectations and key behaviors.
I had the opportunity to attend another DevOps Days Chicago which is a regional conference focused on software development, IT infrastructure operations, and the intersection between them called DevOps. This was the fourth DevOps days I have attended, third in person, and first as a speaker. Speaking of which it’s good to be able to get back to a conference in person. I’m an extrovert so I love meeting new people and don’t get that really from virtual conferences.
Thanks for attending my talk on LMAO Helps During Outages at DevOps Days Birmingham 2022. As promised in the talk i wanted to share my slides for all. For those who missed my talk but stumbled across this post. My talk was about solving the problem of when your company has an outage but there is no need to sweat just remember to LMAO and you’ll get through it having a combination of logs, metrics, alerts, and an observability tool in place will help your company LOL through it.
