Come prepared to listen to experiences, interact with others and leave prepared to begin tackling these problems in your team, department or organization.
Julia Wester will share examples of good and bad techniques for using data when coaching teams. Come, listen and learn how to avoid the pitfalls of managing by numbers, including how to identify and avoid vanity metrics, how to choose metrics that drive desired behaviors, and ways to visualize balanced team metrics that enable continuous improvement.
June 14th & 15th 2016 at Church and State, Salt Lake City’s newest business incubator, these questions will be answered. This next generation, internationally developed two day technology event includes conference talks in the morning, openspaces each afternoon, networking and an evening social gathering the first night.
Tickets are available immediately and already selling quickly. Discounted to $99. for the first 100 people to register and $149. for the remaining, until sold out.
Attendance recommended for: Developer’s, Operation Engineers, System Administrators, Project Managers, Scrum Masters-and anyone who is interested in containerization, microservices, a continuous delivery pipeline, DevOps leadership and the associated cultural changes.
DevOps is referred to as Agile 3.0, the next generation of practices driven by recent market, technology and process changes. It includes “a cross-disciplinary community of practice dedicated to the study of building, evolving and operating rapidly-changing resilient systems at scale.” — Jez Humble of Chef.
You choose! Participate as an attendee, speaker, a volunteer:
Attend only? SLC DevOps Days is a 501(c) non-profit entity. Which means-your tickets are tax deductible. Seating is limited and can be purchased here: slcdevopsdays.org.
Propose a talk or panel for our morning conference. There are a total of 12 slots for talks, 6 each day, 45 minutes per talk. Speakers should expect around 200 people in the auditorium during these periods.
Propose an Ignite talk for Ignite sessions. Creativity loves constraints and Ignite sessions are constrained. You get a 5 minute slot in which you present your content and discuss your slides, which change every 15 seconds (20 slides total-sounds fun right!). Ignite talks follow regular, full length talks in the same large auditorium.
Openspace session: even without a prepared presentation we encourage discussions and interaction by having people propose a session on the fly during the openspace portion of the conference. Check the openspace format for more information

The Sharethrough platform has grown both in size and complexity as we expand to support more customers. How can we refresh our infrastructure and continue to serve millions of ad requests without interruption? DevOps has been coined a movement, a culture change, to something money can’t buy. What does it mean to an AdTech company? Being the first DevOps, I have the chance to shape this uncharted area. In this presentation, I like to share lessons we learned from consolidating multiple AWS accounts and the unexpected side effects. Unknowingly using social psychology to nudge our engineers to deploy more, as a result completed the last mile of our CD pipeline. Tools we use to treat our “Infrastructure as Code” and refresh it when there are changes without fear. Increase security and reduce code complexity by using identity and access management tools. These projects all contributes to the meaning of DevOps at Sharethrough
