Slides: Frustrated? It is probably your fault

I’ve just delivered my talk Frustrated? It is probably your fault at Devopsdays Amsterdam. That means my slides must be finished! Here they are to download, and I’m looking forward to the video being posted later.

Frustrated? It is probably your fault.

That’s the title of my talk which has been accepted to the program for the upcoming Devopsdays Amsterdam June 24th, 25th and 26th. The topics I’ll be discussing will be familiar to the attendees of the London Action Science meetup — and to the people who have been diligently reading my session notes — which is that if […]

Registration open for CITCON North America

CITCON North America 2015 will be held in Ann Arbor Michigan on October 2nd & 3rd. Registration opened today with a hard limit of 150 registrations. Why a limit of 150 registrations? Our original inspiration was Dunbar’s number, and the idea that our prefrontal cortex puts a limit on the number of people we can […]

Prior to my visit Péter had […]

Speaking at ESDC

The first week of March will be a mix of old and new for me. I’ll be speaking at a new conference, ESDC, the Enterprise Software Development Conference. This conference isn’t just new for me, it is new period, taking over the traditional calendar-slot of the defunct SD West. If you’re interested in attending you […]

A Dissenting Voice

PJ and I just received the feedback from our talk at SDBP on Creating Habitable Code. I was very pleased by our marks, particularly the 8.6 for “Would you recommend this session to a colleague?” But reading the comments, we obviously left at least one attendee unconvinced and unimpressed: What was this? Some of the […]

Heading to Melbourne

In a couple of days I’ll be heading down to Melbourne for CITCON‘s 2008 Asia-Pacific event. While I’m there I’ll also be visiting the Victorian Java User Group on June 26th and giving a talk on (what else) Continuous Integration and Testing. I’m very curious to see how this year’s A-P CITCON plays out. Last year’s […]
