Title: Cloudy With a Chance of Devops


Devops is culture enabled by tools, which are necessary but not sufficient. I touch on the history of devopsdays and the motivations that lead orgs to devops, while encouraging orgs to collaborate, communicate, and iterate towards increasing value for their orgs.
