The Coming Donkey Apocalypse
DevOps is growing in popularity and even usage in "the real world." It seems like we're slowly getting past unicorns only and seeing many "horses" do DevOps. Soon we'll see the mainstream market - the "donkeys" - start to pick it up and bend DevOps to its will. This talk will go over "the state of the union" of DevOps and provide some guidance for how to prepare for the donkey apocalypse.

Scoutapark - A Story of Pragmatic Dockerization
Limited Capacity seats available

ScoutaPark is the brain child of Dan Sheppard and his wife after struggling to find quality information on local public parks. With negligible funds to bootstrap this idea, Dan realized he was going to have to lean on friends and cheap offshore development teams if he wanted to put together a MVP to prove the concept.

Paul is a Snarky Devops Princess who is helping Dan out with operations and general devopsery so that Dan can focus on the product while the developers focus on writing code.

This is a story of a pragmatic use of combining Docker and Configuration Management tools to provide a delightful experience from local development by offshore developers all the way to production deployment and management.

Fixing Your Organization by Continually Breaking It
When we discuss DevOps, we often find ourselves mired in the "tools vs. culture" debate. A point often forgotten is the "amplify feedback loops" of DevOps "3 Ways" and how to build that into our cultures. In this talk, we'll look at the importance of continually breaking your organization with experiments, some surprising examples, and how to do it in such a way that you aren't left with a broken organization.

Staying Focused when inflicted with Conflicting Priorities
When workers ask about priorities, a “do all the things” answer can do more harm than good.
Attempting to increase the workload through a pipeline that can only handle so much is a futile exercise—it only increases interruptions that cause further delays.

Clear priorities are vital for reducing expensive context switching. But they are tough to get when competing requests from many customers arrive simultaneously.
This talk addresses what clear priorities can do for teams and how a sensible prioritization method helps teams increase throughput through a pipeline.

Failure Friday! - Start Injecting Failure Today
Limited Capacity seats available

What would happen to your system if one of your app servers died right now? What about your database server? What if they're just slow? Does your application handle it gracefully? Does your development team get paged? Are you sure?

Netflix famously uses their Simian Army to test these scenarios in production, but setting up that automation might be far down the priority list of a growing startup.

In this talk, we will discuss how PagerDuty started injecting failure into our production systems with minimal effort and the full support of the development teams. We will discuss why you should start proactively injecting failure and the exact steps you can take. We will go over the importance of setting an agenda, keeping a log of the actions taken, and todos that were uncovered. We will talk about why I think your metrics should be linkable, and why you should leave your alerts on during these planned failures. Finally, we will talk about the benefits your company will get from causing all this chaos. At the end of this talk, I hope to have inspired you to go start breaking your production systems, on purpose.
