IMPRESSIONS FROM 2017

The first ever Global DevOps Bootcamp took place on June 17th, 2017. The goal with the event was to create an event-in-a-box that was to be delivered the same day throughout the world where attendees would get a chance to learn and try out the latest DevOps principles using the Microsoft platform. To make this happen the organizers were provided with presentations and hands-on labs. Since the topic is rather large and people were expected to have different skills coming to the event virtual machines were prepared so all the attendees needed was a computer that could connect to a virtual machine. All exercises were then run on the Azure VM.

"Wow gentlemen you should be extremely proud of the event you have created. Honored is an understatement of how I feel to have been included. Members of my team are asking how they can be involved next year. You just let us know how we can help and we will be there. Seeing all the tweets must feel incredible!" ~ Donovan Brown (Principal DevOps Manager, Microsoft)
