A lot has changed in the last few years and change does not appear to be slowing down soon. When we understand principles, we can derived relevant practices and tools, but that doesn’t mean we all need to start that work from the beginning.

How can our mindsets, skillsets and toolsets accommodate change without being overwhelmed or falling behind?

This talk will explore the most successful patterns that have emerged with an attempt to make these strategies for change more direct and actionable.

Andrew Clay Shafer was devopsing before devops was a word.

He is often referenced as a foundational voice in the devops movement with a lot of experience and perspective contributing to open source, operating services and building communities.

As a co-founder of Puppet Labs, he had the privilege to watch the internal workings of many organizations who built the big web. Working on OpenStack and Cloud Foundry, he gained a greater appreciation for the challenges of enterprise IT.

He’s a life long learner who hopes he can help others learn too.
