Salt Lake City DevOps Days August 19, 2021 5:45 pm

This month’s meetup is a workshop showing how to deploy a web application to a kubernetes cluster in AWS. The founders of saas glue have set up a small project that we will be using for the workshop. You do not need to be a developer or an experienced DevOps engineer. The purpose of this workshop is to help anyone interested in learning about Kubernetes, DevOps, saas glue tools, and best practices for cloud deployments.

This is a “hands-on” workshop but you can also just attend the online meeting if you want to learn more about the topic. There are a few prerequisites to set up the workshop on your machine.

1. Amazon AWS Account (free tier) Requirement

The first prerequisite is an Amazon AWS account. Amazon offers a free tier account for developers and DevOps engineers. You will be able to set up and tear down the application during the workshop and stay within the “free tier” limits of your AWS account. If you don’t have an AWS account here is a link to set one up:

https://aws.amazon.com/free

Additional Prerequisites:

3. SaasGlue account - Create Account here:
4. Installed software components (on your dev machine)

Day 1: Kubernetes Online Workshop - DevOps UT Meetup, June 9, 2021

Salt Lake City DevOps Days July 14, 2021 8:57 pm

You know about DevOps, you know DevOps is right for your organization, but hey, what can you do? As an individual contributor or a team leader, your authority to transform your organization to DevOps is limited. But your influence is not!

In this talk, Baruch will show how some proven influencing and negotiating techniques can be used to convince critical stakeholders in your organization in the necessity of DevOps.

We look at the arguments, the techniques, and the small tricks, which work in particular situations with particular engineering and business leadership positions and will prepare you to deliver the message of DevOps most convincingly to each.

"Influence without Authority", "Getting to Yes", "Getting past No" and others applied to IT organizations with DevOps message.

Speaker Bio: Baruch Sadogursky, Head of DevOps Advocacy @jfrog
Baruch Sadogursky (a.k.a JBaruch) is the Head of DevOps Advocacy and a Developer Advocate at JFrog. His passion is speaking about technology. Well, speaking in general, but doing it about technology makes him look smart, and 19 years of hi-tech experience sure helps. When he’s not on stage (or on a plane to get there), he learns about technology, people and how they work, or more precisely, don’t work together.

He is a co-author of the Liquid Software book, a CNCF ambassador and a passionate conference speaker on DevOps, DevSecOps, digital transformation, containers and cloud-native, artifact management and other topics, and is a regular at the industry’s most prestigious events including KubeCon, DockerCon, Devoxx, DevOps Days, OSCON, Qcon, JavaOne and many others. You can see some of his talks at jfrog.com/shownotes

Influencing DevOps without Authority- how a "DevOps engineer" can advance DevOps - DevOps UT

Salt Lake City DevOps Days July 14, 2021 8:50 pm

Personal Agility is a simple framework for people who want to do more that matters and have more impact through their actions. Today, almost everybody has more things to do than time to do them. Highly creative people have almost by definition more ideas than time to execute them. In either case, deciding what to do and what not to do is the key to doing things that matter.

Personal Agility is designed to enable you to reflect on your goals and intentions at regular intervals so you can ensure that you are doing the right things first and you can stop working when additional work brings no further benefit. We believe Personal Agility can help anybody do more that matters and have more impact.

In a business context, Personal Agility can enable managers and their staff to achieve high alignment and transparency about goals, forecasts and milestones achieved.

In a personal context, spouses and partners can coach each other to set and achieve objectives together. And as a coach, you can use Personal Agility to enable your clients to identify and work toward their important goals in life and work.

“Agile” is a set of values and principles often associated with highly effective software development teams, and Scrum is a leading Agile framework. By simplifying processes, you can deliver value in a shorter time period while inspecting and adapting to improve along the way.

Personal Agility applies these agile concepts beyond the workplace. Personal Agility helps people identify what matters most in their lives and ensure that their actions align. Personal Agility takes its name because it is based on the same values, principles and patterns as Scrum and Agile software development, but recognizes that organizing your life is a different challenge than creating products as a team.

Presenter Bio: Maria E. Bates, MBA along with having ACSM and CSPO certifications, is a certified life coach. She is one of the SLC DevOps board members who coaches high performing teams and helps individuals reach their dreams. She is a fan of wooden carousels and has beagles.
