We know that many teams adopting a DevOps approach to software development are often tripped up by a variety of bottlenecks that prevent them from reaching maximum efficiency. Some of these bottlenecks are ineffective collaboration, manual deployments, incomplete test labs, lack of test automation, and slow hand-offs.
To help we have put together several roundtable and networking events. This is a chance for you to talk about DevOps approaches with experts from IBM, partners, and customers. Our goal is to share how you can remove these bottlenecks and deliver innovation continuously.
So what do we cover at these events? Here are the highlights:
And here is what one of our attendees had to say about these events:
I attended the DevOps Networking Event in Portland, OR, and it blew my mind. I enjoyed the opportunity to network with local colleagues that are also focused on DevOps. This is the future of IT!”
-Nick Wylde, DevOps Specialist, Daimler
A typical agenda starts with a breakfast and networking, followed by an introduction to DevOps, a case study, a subject matter expert point of view, open discussion, lunch, a demonstration, and wrap up.
As a client advocate and someone passionate about all things testing, I know you won’t want to miss these events.
By the way, we keep adding new events so be sure to bookmark this post and check back often.
