Together with Microsoft, I am hosting a very special 2 day workshop on Kanban and Desired State configuration this December 9th & 10th. If you’re in the Los Angeles area, this is a not to be missed opportunity to learn about two critical devops skills from Dominica Degrandis and Steven Murawski. Proceeds will be donated to Girls Who Code, a national nonprofit organization working to close the gender gap in the technology and engineering sectors.
SPONSORSHIP: If you are interested in sponsoring this very special event, we have a coffee, breakfast and a lunch sponsorship available. Please contact me via email at jdevita@microsoft DOT com about sponsorship.
Ask any Operations team what the boss complains about and you’ll likely hear, “Things take too long and there is no visibility as to why.” Come discover how to improve visibility on work and speed up the delivery pipeline. This 2-day workshop on Kanban and Declarative Configuration Management with DSC and Chef provides learning on two essential Devops aspects – culture and tools.
Who should attend:
Anyone who wants to become more familiar with Kanban for IT Ops and implementing DSC.
