AllDayDevOps 2016

AllDayDevOps 2016

I “attended” the online AllDayDevOps conference today. This was a new experience for me as the entire conference was given remotely. This was interesting both from a logistical point of view as well as an academic one. The conference itself was massive (over 12,000 attendees) sharing three simultaneous tracks through live youtube streaming.

The track which i followed was security related (unsurprisingly). There were interesting conversations on slack as well as the chat feature of youtube, which helped keep people interested and focused on the conference itself.

Also, the format was nice. Each presentation was 30m long, with a 10m break between them.

Best Talks

The best talks were (in my opinion):

  • 21:24 - System Hardening with Ansible - Akash Mahajan
  • 1:46:14 - Prepare to Defend Thyself with Blue/Green - Fabian Kim
  • 3:05:53 - Security Scanning using OWASP ZAP in a CI Pipeline - Simon Bennetts
  • John Willis’s (docker) Key Note - Turning Human Capital into High Performance Organizations

I really liked the format and the focus of the talks, I think that we will see more of these conferences in the future as this format is approachable and scalable.
