What to Expect
If you haven’t joined us for a live chat before, you’re in for a treat! The panel, moderated and led by Gene Kim, is one of the many ways we, at IT Revolution, aim to identify and amplify key patterns and best practices for IT organizations, and the DevOps community at large. By the end of the hour long conversation, we want attendees to be able to gain experiential insights from the leaders of large, complex organizations that are living and breathing a transformational journey every single day.
The format is an informal Q&A session, where all panelists are asked to share their experience reports on several topics ranging from, but not limited to: metrics for success, ways to overcome challenges, emerging patterns, top resources for continuous learning, and more. Gene also likes to have each panelist share a preview of their presentation at DevOps Enterprise Summit and will give the audience some new updates about the event itself.
The next live chat starts promptly at 7am PDT / 15:00 BST on 12 April, 2017. If you’re unable to make the live chat as it happens, we automatically publish the video replay immediately following the discussion. Want to see the last live chat? Go here!
