Just a small thing I noticed while swapping between tracks, the volume resets when they reload, I'm awake now at least 😅 Is that something that's happening for everyone?

Kim Wallis08:05:15

Yeah. That together with the volume for the music being a lot louder than the talks themselves is a good way to make sure you are awake for new talks 😅

@lbmkrishna is the value much higher during live airing VS. something added to the replay in the Video Library?

It will be great during live. But for now, replay video library would be great

Gene Kim, ITREV, Program Chair11:05:48

Hello!  I hope everyone is having a GREAT DAY 3 MORNING!! 🎉 Our first surprise we have for you today! So, how would you like to get a “behind the scenes” look at how we created this DevOps Enterprise Summit? We heard so much already about how important it is to talk about accidents and near-misses — @nora talked about it yesterday, and Dr. @steve773 and Dr. @ronwestrum did as well today. These are the same principles that you use in your daily work. If you’re interested, join us at 1:50 pm BST during the mid-day break, where I’ll share how we created all the speaker videos, and the tools we built to deliver the two virtual conferences last year, and the two conferences this year. And in the spirit of the above, we’ll share some of the things that went wrong, some of our “near misses”, and all the contingency planning we did to survive a scenario where critical services we depend upon go down (think Slack, Vimeo, EasyLive, Google Cloud) — and how to better recover than the memorable end to DOES 2020 Vegas!  :) To join the session, just be watching Track 1 (  I’ll be presenting with @arne.brasseur and we’ll do Q&A as well. We’re excited to share and hope you enjoy the peek behind the scenes!  Bring your lunch!  :) (And for the first time, we’re doing it LIVE!  What could go wrong?)

This is something I created for my own sanity, however, a few questions came up today asking for answers like this. I am actually working on a spreadsheet version of this with a lot more meta but it's far from done and not sharable yet. Let me know if you want to get the updated version when I have it finished. I apologize in advance if your product is not on here. I only listed ones I have familiarity with.

Fascinating how important a theme OKRs have become this year. But just to put things into perspective, they have quite a way to go to approach DevOps.

John Willis16:05:45

@steve.smith Exactly, I was tired of going there for the product. A) not all important products are listed there b) I needed better context c) once I get all the meta done it will easier to reason with. For example, is it OSS, and who's is the vendor.

Yes, looking forward to it. You're building a better periodic table than them 🙂
