For the upcoming DevOpsDays in Mountain View we're looking to create t-shirts based off of your design. We're going to run a design submission period, followed by a brief rating period. The design with the most votes will get printed on the back of the Devopsdays 2011 - Mountain View event shirt. How cool is that?
In order to make the voting period safe, we'll be collecting submissions up to Midnight PDT on May 15th. Once we have all submissions we'll create the voting apparatus at DevOpsDays.org - where interested people can vote on their favorite design. We will close the design voting period out at Midnight PDT on May 31st - and give the design to our printer.
Note, based on feedback from previous events we're going to go with black/dark-colored t-shirts. Please ensure your designs accommodate.
Even if you're not a great artist, you can still think of a great tagline !
Please use this template when you submit your design to us - along with full-scale artwork.
If you have any questions please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any concerns/comments.
What started in Ghent in 2009 and has travelled the world from Sydney to Sao Paulo to Boston is now coming BACK to Mountain View! That's right, following on the heels of an awesome 2-day event in Boston DevOps Days is rolling into town to cap off the Velocity Conference.
This will be the seventh official DevOps Days event and it's sure to be a grand one.
The event will take place June 17th and 18th. That's a Friday and Saturday. If you're going to be in town for Velocity (or you want to come out specifically for DevOps Days) you don't want to miss this.
Especially if you're going to Velocity, the DevOps Days format is a great way to interact with people that you might not have had otherwise. If you've never been, think of it as the Hallway track on steroids. There's no reason NOT to stay the extra two days and come experience something that could literally change your professional life.
No two DevOps Days are alike. They're like Pokemonm, 'gotta attend em all!'.
Special care is taken to tailor the event format as a whole to fit the particulars of, not only the location and the audience, but also to the state of DevOps at the time.
The 2011 Mountain View event is no exception. Where as last year was a 1 day event, we're going for two days this year. Because of the days of the week involved, we're mixing things up a bit (subject to a bit of change):
Friday June 17
This will be similar to the event last year in that we plan on having panel discussions. We're also adding a few tricks we picked up from past events, including Boston this year:
Ignite talks are a rockin' good time. You get 5 minutes and 20 slides to talk about a topic. Oh, did we mention your slides auto-advance?
Open spaces are a great way to tailor the conference to what you want to hear about. Because of the sheer number of people that we expect, we're going to change things up a bit from previous open spaces. Friday will be proposal day while Saturday....
Saturday June 18
This will be the day that for the actual open spaces. As with Friday, we're also bringing something along from Boston - Demo Rounds!
Demo rounds were something that happened quite by accident and organically in Boston. Think of it as an Ignite presentation merged with openspace and a side of The Gong Show/Survivor. Got a cool project, you're working on? Give a demo. If the group likes it and wants you to keep going, you can. The group gets tired? Yield the floor to the next person.
There are two reasons for doing two days in Mountain View this year. The first is that two days is becoming the official DevOps Days format. There's simply too much wonderful information to cover that can fit in one day.
The second reason, and one that we think is important enough that we are carrying over into Saturday, is based on experiences last year in Mountain View. Because we're coming off of Velocity, the crowd is simply much larger. We want to fit in as much as possible and keep with some of the basic formats that we've used elsewhere - for instance the open spaces (which are worth the price of admission alone). We simply cannot fit that into one day.
Additionally, again because of the expected crowd size, we're taking special pains to deal with some of the problems from last year. With such a large crowd, it was difficult for everyone to get a chance to interact with the speakers. We're working hard to factor in interaction into all the discussions.
You don't want to miss this. You'll meet some amazing people, learn lots of cool new stuff but also help shape the future of devops. One theme we're really focusing on hard this year is "Moving the conversation forward". That doesn't mean we won't have discussions around "the basics" but we're ready to take it to the next level.
You have a chance to be a part of that discussion and help shape the face of something that is taking the information technology and business world by storm.
Please join us.
Another year, another devopsdays! This time in the marvelous city of Boston.

|It's about one year since the first devopsdays 2009 took place in Belgium.
Since then we have had successful conference in both Australia and the United States. Now we are back home in Europe.
The details for the next devopsdays are:
Location: East Hotel in Hamburg/Germany Date: Friday, 15th - Saturday 16th October 2010
ve·loc·i·ty rapidity of motion or operation; swiftness; speed.
If you've heard me talk about Agile Infrastucture, or read my personal blog, you might have noticed that I frequently make references to Velocity. When we started planning DevOpsDays US, there was consensus from the beginning to backdraft Velocity.
I have a hard time saying 'DevOps' was born at any one time or any one place, as doing so ignores a large body of individual and organizational work, knowledge and experience, but Velocity has to be considered seminal in the course of the formation and articulation of DevOps ideas and ideals.
Last year, John Allspaw and Paul Hammond gave this unforgettable talk on Dev and Ops cooperation, but that theme was apparent, if not explicit, at the first Velocity conf in '08. I did my best to contribute.
Velocity is all about web application performance and operations. My personal opinion is that much of the innovation and forward pressure we are witnessing in the DevOps ecosystem has come from the crucible of building and managing highly scaled web applications. I also feel like Velocity Conf is an epicenter for the DevOps community of practice.
All of the people organizing DevOpsDays will be at Velocity. Damon and I both have presentations this year and Patrick will be there as an author of a chapter in the new 'Web Operations' book from O'Reilly.
Our panels are sprinkled with Velocity speakers as well:
