Crazy Convention Season’s Coming To Austin

Sorry we’ve been quiet around here… Too much real work to do!  Besides real work is our vigorous schedule of conference and user group stuff.  James just spoke on Serverless at RSA, and James and I are working on our second lynda.com DevOps course (Infrastructure Automation) to start drilling down from our DevOps Fundamentals course we released late last year.

And conference season is about to break over Austin like a storm.  It’s insane this year.  So many great events in a two month period.

Our Events

We Agile Admins love the tech community and we spend a lot of our free time organizing stuff to help it out!

Of course we’re working hard on preparing DevOpsDays Austin 2017, the sixth year of one of the biggest DevOpsDays events anywhere!   May 4-5.  This year we’re bringing in a real all star set of speakers as our Monsters of DevOps Reunion Tour – including DevOps OGs like Patrick Debois, John Willis, Damon Edwards, Gene Kim, Andrew Shafer, Adrian Cockroft, Jez Humble, Nicole Fosgren… We’re pulling out all the stops this year! We are also again inviting local user groups to come out and participate – you can get a couple free tickets per group and we’re even going to offer to sponsor a meeting for groups that come out.

User group wise, we’ve retooled CloudAustin a little to be more practitioner focused, come check it out.  Also, Peco’s Austin Monitoring Meetup is putting some really good content in.

The Rest Of The Events

Well, at least the ones on my radar personally.

The giant conference that locks up Austin for two weeks – SXSW is almost upon us.  SXSW Interactive is March 10-16.

The biggest new splash in conferences, Dockercon, is coming to Austin April 17-20!  I’ll totally be there.

Serverlessconf is coming to Austin for the first time on April 26-28.

OSCON is coming back to Austin again this year, May 8-11.

Keep Austin Agile is May 25.

Security conference BSides Austin is on the same dates DevOpsDays is, May 4-5. 😦

In terms of user groups, I’ve started to use Austin Tech Events’ Twitter and email newsletter to keep up with them all.
