morning all! was great to chat to so many of you in the "gather" town 🙂 see you at bar central for more fun discussions today!

I used to work for a lorry manufacturer in Södertälje that was vehemently anti devops back in 2010, I'm loving the ability to watch videos ahead of time. Talk scheduled for tomorrow.(

RJ - Ways of Working, Nationwide UK08:05:47

Morning to the community I love ❤️! Just to say, on behalf of the c30 Nationwide colleagues attending this year - thank you for what has already been an incredible set of talks and perspectives. The conversations that emerged in real-time and through the evening 'back home' have been open, honest, positive and vulnerable - and it's this community's stimulus through talking and sharing that makes this possible. Thank you to everyone and here's to another amazing day's learning ❤️.

@genek I'm really missing the DevOps Confessions. I'd like to vote for those to return please. Some of the success story presentations come across as company marketing promotions - "didn't we do our devops journey great!". The confessions would often be much more insightful, getting to the nitty-gritty day-to-day difficulties that many of us on this journey experience, and personally I found greater and more practical learning in them than high level success stories from huge organisations.

Grant Robertson - Synopsys10:05:23

@genek101 Maybe its already been mentioned but for next year have you considering running everything through Gather? i.e. people walk around to virtual booths. Join talk sessions in a virtual conference room and then people have to virtually walk to the next slot? Its hard to focus on everything and engage in all places simultaneously. People could hang around after to talk to the speaker or run off to next session if they wanted

Duena Blomstrom, Psychological Safety Dashboard CEO, Author PeopleBeforeTech10:05:33

Uh oh - I have to admit I'd vote against that personally, Gather isn't for everyone, ironically

👍 1
Grant Robertson - Synopsys11:05:57

I get not everyone want their webcams/mics on but you don't have to with gather

Grant Robertson - Synopsys11:05:20

but it does bring virtual closer to the physical event experience

Jeff Gallimore (CTIO - Excella)11:05:31

Thanks for the perspectives. It sounds like Gather has definitely been a valuable addition to the Summit experience. After the event, we’ll be talking about what we learned and all the feedback about it so we can improve for future events.

Kim Weins (Anchore)11:05:33

Would be cool if the booths/expo hall was in there at least

Steve Smith21:05:48

I agree with @me1342. Tools like Gather are interesting, and can be useful. But they definitely have downsides And also - won't we back to in-person events in 2022? 🤞 in the UK is aiming for an in-person event this September (disclaimer, I'm on the org committee)

Nick Eggleston (free radical)11:05:15

I seem to recall someone was sharing a Google Doc we can collaboratively edit to collectively take notes on the summit. Is there more than one? Anyone have the links? Thanks!

Gene Kim, ITREV, Program Chair12:05:47

Holy cow, what a great idea!

John Osborne11:05:47

Once the OKRs have been used to micromanage tasks or for the managers own vanity purposes it's hard to earn that trust back because now everyone rolls their eyes when you talk about OKRs

I will be honored if you can leave me a like and/or a comment/feedback. Thank you.

Steve Smith21:05:39

I think the Slack setup for this virtual conference is great, 👏 for the curated channel list on joining. One change I'd suggest for DOES LV 2021 - rename #general as #event-info (or similar), and lock this channel down to event staff advising folks where to go next + general conference announcements. / @annp I'm finding it hard to keep up with event announcements vs. reading material sharing vs. questions all in one place. Maybe I'm not the only one? At Lean Agile Exchange last year, #general was renamed as #event-info and made read-only to attendees, it worked well. At John Lewis & Partners, we renamed #general -> #announcements and it's worked out there as well. I think it gives everyone (including me) a nudge to put conversations in the right places for people to find them

Ann Perry - IT Revolution08:05:17

Hi @steve.smith  – really appreciate the feedback, we have been echoing these thoughts internally as well. The fine-tuning continues, and each conference experience helps us get a little more streamlined.

Steve Smith08:05:53

No worries @annp, I can connect you to Allison Beaumont (organiser of Lean Agile Exchange) after this conference, if it helps you. Just let me know
