This is a presentation that I gave to a great group of folks at Thomson Reuters who graciously invited me to Keynote at their internal DevOps event. Thomson Reuters is making great strides in adopting DevOps so I wanted to provide them with some bullet points that they can use to help build a solid foundation.
After giving my "Introversion & Tech Conferences" ignite at a local Minneapolis meetup I was invited to give an extended version as a Keynote at a Target internal DevOps event. This presentation takes the themes I introduced in the ignite and delves deeper into them.
This was a talk aimed at those who may have been using Docker for awhile now and want to start pushing the boundaries a bit, perhaps by leveraging the sweet API they have. In this short talk I cover my approach using the API and some gotchas of which users coming from the CLI might not be aware.
Technical conferences can be difficult for individuals who, like myself, identify as "introverted." The sea of people can overwhelm the senses and the social pressures hidden around every corner can send some into anxious panics. This talk will discuss how introverts, extroverts, and everyone in between can approach these types of conferences so that it can be enjoyed by everyone.
