We have three keynotes this year: Wednesday morning, Thursday morning, and the closing keynote Friday afternoon.
DevOps has a lot of buzz, but Ben will separate the hype from the reality. DevOps may be a new term, but it's not a new idea. He will deconstruct DevOps into its three transformation phases, look back at the often referenced but rarely explained history that influences it, and see how it is a catalyst that is changing the craft of system administration.
I'm really excited we were able to book Ben for the conference and can't wait to see the talk!
