DevOps Enterprise Summit 2016 (DOES16): Day Two



Day Two Highlights

The second day of the DevOps Enterprise Summit is a wrap! And, what a great two days it has been.

With about 1,300 DevOps professionals in attendance, this year’s conference is clearly established as the premiere industry event for our industry. The last two days have been incredibly well-received, as DevOps executives and professionals have done a tremendous job sharing and presenting experience use cases that help educate, guide and inspire!

The overwhelming response we have received in the quality and substance of the DOES presentations is both top notch and extremely valuable. This demonstrates just how blessed we are to work within an industry that values knowledge and experience sharing—and the overall power of community.

Key takeaways include:

  • The DevOps Workshops (Lean Coffee sessions) have instigated lively discussions around the key themes of the conference and there were several mentions of the Toyota Kata as well!
  • A key metric from The State of DevOps Report being discussed is the deploys per developer, per day data set that suggests: as low-performing organizations add developers their number of deploys per day decreases. As high-performing organizations add developers, their deploys per day increases.
  • If there are 16 million developers in the world and each of them can operate as high performers, the economic value created would be in the trillions, according to Gene.
  • AXELOS and IT Revolution pioneered a free online DevOps training program based on the newly launched DevOps Handbook. It’s a high-quality program, based on IT Revolution’s DevOps Handbook and drawing on combined expertise of IT Revolution and AXELOS in the fields of DevOps, Lean, Agile, and ITSM!

As we head toward day three, we appreciate each and every attendee, speaker and sponsor for joining together to advance DevOps practices in the enterprise. And, especially on Election Day no doubt! We hope everyone had a great time last night at the City View Metreon mingling and unwinding playing vintage video games.

Tonight, we will gather in the Expo Hall for the “Vote DevOps” party and enjoy drinks and hors d’oeuvres before the election results, courtesy of CloudMunch!

Also, be sure to grab your copy of The DevOps Handbook for a book signing in XebiaLabs’s booth with Gene, Jez and John.

Stay tuned for more to come!
