The 2019 DevOps Enterprise Summit (DOES) is just around the corner and I am excited about it. It’s been over two years since I’ve had the opportunity to attend the conference that Gene Kim founded. Gene is the author of “The Phoenix Project” – the book that kicked off the IT Revolution and set many of us on the path of DevOps and Agile CI/CD development practices.
Inspired by The Phoenix Project and its follow-on hit The DevOps Handbook, I’ve spent that last 5 years here at NetApp helping customers with Digital Transformation and their DevOps practice adoption.
