Join us at the Global DevOps Bootcamp 2019!

The Global DevOps Bootcamp is back, and we’ve partnered once again with the DevOps Porto community to host it at our office on June 15.

The Global DevOps Bootcamp is a free 1-day event held by local communities all over the world, organized by Xpirit and Solidify and all about DevOps on the Microsoft Stack. Attendees will have a chance to debate, learn and play with DevOps concepts with people from all continents who share their enthusiasm.

Titled “Your build it, you run away it”, this year’s Global DevOps Bootcamp is all about the “run” part of DevOps and will focus on the concept of Detect, Respond, Recover. These three phases will be dissected and applied to scenarios where you will learn to overcome challenges, build a solution, and run it as a DevOps team would. Because this means getting your hands dirty, you should come prepared with a laptop, a lot of curiosity, and a mindset to share your experiences and knowledge around Azure and DevOps practices with other attendees.

Below is the agenda for the Global DevOps Bootcamp 2019:

09:00 – Drop in, coffee
10:00 – Introduction
10:15 – Keynote
10:45 – Local Keynote
11:15 – Start Bootcamp
13:00 – Lunch
13:30 – Continue Bootcamp
16:00 – Demos
16:30 – Wrap-up

Throughout the day, attendees will have the chance to discuss, learn and play with DevOps concepts with people from all continents who share the same enthusiasm.

Titled “From one release per month to multiple releases a day – Applied modern release patterns and practices”, this year’s event is all about improving the release cadence and help participants understand DevOps trends and insights that enable multiple releases per day.
