Business Leaders Share Insights Ahead of DevOps Enterprise Summit 2016

I am so excited about the third year of the DevOps Enterprise Summit San Francisco (DOES16). It's hard to believe it's happening in just under two months! This November 7-9 at the Hilton San Francisco Union Square leaders will be describing their amazing transformation at organizations such as Disney, Target, American Airlines, Hearst Publishing and dozens more.

One of the greatest things about DevOps Enterprise is the community of attendees and speakers who are helping each other. During the conference, we try to create many ways where everyone – whether they're just starting out or are years into their DevOps transformation – can learn from each other and bring back the information they need to make their own journeys successful.

We recently had speakers and alumni of the DevOps Enterprise Summit share their best practices on a live video chat featuring Heather Mickman, Senior Director of Technology Services at Target; Pauly Comtois, VP of DevOps at Hearst; Michael Nygard, VP of customer solutions at Cognitect; Damon Edwards, co-founder and managing partner at DTO Solutions; and Sam Fell and Anders Wallgren from Electric Cloud.

You can watch the video replay of our chat below to hear some interesting insights related to middle management, a sneak peek at the presenter's upcoming their reflections on the DevOps Enterprise community, and their favorite resources for continued learning.



Want to spend three full days concentrating on solving your biggest business IT challenges? The annual DevOps Enterprise Summit San Francisco brings a vibrant community together representing multiple industries and IT focus areas. The purpose? To identify and amplify the best practices in DevOps based on practical advice presented through personal stories told by fellow business technology leaders. If you haven't registered yet for the event, it's not too late (but tickets are going fast!). If you'd like to enjoy 20% off registration, vote for DevOps and use code "VOTEDEVOPS" before September 14!
