Tech Talk 2016

Standard

2016 has been a fruitful year for me in software development. Apart from my day job in Sitecore as a lead developer, I also have a lot fun with services in Azure cloud in my spare time.

Another new “adventure” I tried in 2016 is speaking for Tech Talk in local tech communities – from my own office, university, Microsoft office to being an online panelist in Google Hangout discussion.

Standardizing DevOps Across Organization @ Continuous Discussions (#c9d9) Google Hangout

It has been a rewarding experience to contribute and making a difference in tech communities through Tech Talk. It amazed me when some audiences asked me follow up questions based on what I have shared earlier. It is truly satisfying to learn that I have inspired some audiences with useful information or ideas in general which they can benefit from.

It has been an honor to share the stages with many of the knowledgeable speakers. As much as I enjoyed sharing, I have learned equally a lot from them. Thanks to those who invited me over to speak, those who helped me out to make the Tech Talks possible and those who came and supported me. Thank you! I am truly lucky to have you all amazing people as friends in the tech communities.

Signing off for 2016… It has been a fantastic year, looking forward to 2017!

Standardizing and Scaling DevOps Across the Organization

Standard

Large, complex organizations implementing DevOps find that they need to balance between supporting small teams and an agile way of working,  and finding ways to standardize their DevOps processes, tooling and implementation — in order to scale DevOps throughout the organization (and save costs).

On Tuesday I participated in an online panel on the subject of Standardizing and Scaling DevOps Across the Organization, as part of Continuous Discussions (#c9d9), a series of community panels about Agile, Continuous Delivery and DevOps. Watch a recording of the panel:

Continuous Discussions is a community initiative by Electric Cloud, which powers Continuous Delivery and Release Management at businesses like SpaceX, Cisco, GE and E*TRADE by automating their build, test and deployment processes.
