The Twelve Clouds of Christmas

December 19, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm


It’s a December tradition – a dozen (or more) 5 minute lightning demos/talks from the members of CloudAustin! Send the organizers a message through the Meetup.com link to get on the list of speakers for this event.

You can see the previous years’ 12 Clouds lineups for 2016 (https://www.meetup.com/CloudAustin/events/228918521/), 2015 (http://www.meetup.com/CloudAustin/events/226373629/), 2014 (http://www.meetup.com/CloudAustin/events/212248062/), 2013 (http://www.meetup.com/CloudAustin/events/140828762/), 2012 (http://www.eventbrite.com/e/austin-cloud-user-group-meeting-december-18-2012-tickets-4922596619), and 2011 (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jX1BT9T2tcw). Talks are OK, demos are better, strict 5 minute limit. Show off whatever you’re working on!

Various other user groups will be joining us for this festive holiday celebration – if your local tech user group wants to just pile onto this instead of trying to schedule a meeting near the holidays are welcome to call this their official December meeting too, sure!

Abstract: DevOps is dead. Was it ever alive, really? I’ve yet to meet a real “DevOps team” that’s more than just an automation team. Basically, they’re SRE people who are supporting agile teams, breaking out the wagilefall problem. Should we call it?
