What have been your favorite conferences that you’ve attended in your career?
DOES15 in SF :)
DOES14 was obviously my favorite because I got to meet an amazing community for folks like the ones on this call.
DevOps Enterprise Summit (all years), Gartner ITOSS, Gartner ITExpo Barcelona (for obvious reasons ;)!), IBM User Conference in Las Vegas :)
The inargural DOES14 San Fran
Believe it or not, itSMF (the ITIL advocacy community) in 2004 was an incredibly dynamic and innovative community. Some people will find that very difficult to believe! @itsm_lisa
DOES is always good -- interesting one was DevOpsDays SV 2011!
Going retro...a project management conference in the mid 1990's that gave me my first intro to Agile and Lean through a book called "Extreme Project Management." Changed the arc of my career forever.
Also...DevOpsDays Istanbul was fabulous!!!
OOPSLA 98. I was a CS student, and got into a workshop group on modularity that Grady Booch was a participant in. Being so young and getting into such a high caliber of discussion had a huge impact on me.
Just yesterday, I watched some videos from DOES14 SFO that are still so interesting and relevant.
DOES15 - this was my first DOES
@dominicad DOES14 SF was amazing and blew me away. It was after that conf that I started telling everyone that DOES was the best conference going. @carmendeardo Didn't we meet there?
Me, too! @dominicad!
@dominicad The Mark Schwarzt "how DevOps will save the Federal Government" was amazing
@mik_kersten yes we met right after my talk - and you introduced me to Sam!
@mik_kersten What a privilege! That must have been amazing! Grady Booch!
@carmendeardo Yes - how everywhere, ppl are just doing the best they can given the context they're in.
DOES14 was when I first heard the term "horses".
Mark was amazing, as was John Willis - he did a talk I could understand!
@dominicad that also struck me and got me to talk more about the fact that we have to respect the current processes that got us where we are while being open to continuous improvement.
Hoping it will be DOES18 ;-)
