My Journey to DevOps Enlightenment

I am honored that the Cloud Expo conference organizers have asked me to be the Tech Chair for DevOps Summit 2014. The positive response from so many people I respect has been wonderful. Thank you to all who sent good wishes - it means a lot to me to have your support. Part of what makes this an exciting opportunity for me is that I expect my past experience and attitude will reflect the experience and attitudes of many DevOps Summit 2014 attendees. For example, I was once a DevOps 'noob' (newb? n00b?) and expect many attendees will be similarly naïve. In the four years since my first skeptical DevOps post (when I was still an independent analyst, and DevOps didn't even have a Wikipedia entry), reactions from 'the movement' have ranged from petty insults to good-humored ribbing and frequently educational commentary. However, as I said in the press release, "I have s... (more)
