I'm looking at job openings right now. I would be interested in a position where I could be working to improve healthcare outcomes. I haven't been to an in person DOES before to have a big network here. If there is someone working in healthcare or knows someone here to introduce me to, could you please message me?

Jeff Gallimore (CTIO - Excella)13:10:40

Martin Chesbrough - Everest Engineering13:10:27

My favourite so far is the Target talk on devops culture

👏 1
Jennifer Riggins13:10:14

oooh I had just caught the end of that one but was planning to watch today! Thanks Martin!

Martin Chesbrough - Everest Engineering13:10:25

Also the Bryan Finster talk on DORA metrics was good


Some talks standout - due to how devops has influenced other industry verticals - example mining, healthcare, health & safety, Telecom/Network and experts talks like @steve773


Reminder: Is there someone you’d like to share a video with? Go ahead! Videos are free for others to watch — just send them the link. The people you share the videos with just need to enter their email address. Free accounts are capped at five views during the conference and ten views per month afterwards. Individual (unlimited views for one person) and Organization Memberships (unlimited views for an entire organization) are available at


Reminder: If you haven’t updated your Slack profile to include more information about yourself, now would be a great time to do it. Name, image, organization, title, pronouns… whatever you feel comfortable sharing with this community to help us learn a little more about you. Here’s an example…

Martin Chesbrough - Everest Engineering13:10:38

Hi did I hear Gene Kim say something about archiving the Slack channel while the conference is ongoing?

Gene Kim, ITREV, Program Chair16:10:13

Yes. We have a Slack archive. Use google to search it. cc @alex

Ryan Taylor, Application Architect, Axim Geospatial14:10:32

What sessions or forums would you recommend for developing opinionated/shared pipelines across teams, or an org, for example in jenkins? Are there sessions or places to have discussions here about what has worked, challenges encountered, what to avoid, and so on?

Chris Judd14:10:56

Good question, thanks for asking!

John Willis15:10:13

I had an interesting conversation with one of the cloud titan organizations yesterday about the Facebook outage. The outage may be related to a networking automation system they had created a few years back that allows them to make massive BGP changes sort of like software deploys. Possibly due to COVID-induced route changes they might have hit an edge case between BGP, Automation, and unusual internal routes. I'm trying to track down the paper they introduced a few years ago to see if the story fits. One of the possible meta topics around this might be how we always need guard rails around scaled automation. Complex systems will create complex conditions and the best we can do is work with probabilities.

❤️ 3
Eric Swanson (EA, CarMax)15:10:00

If so, you could put that story next to the where human "control" and inputs engages automation.

Nick Eggleston (free radical)15:10:49

@jwillis love to hear more detail about this

John Willis15:10:33

Have an old presentation I did years ago about one of the original Amazon outage and Deming's System of Profound Knowledge. I'll see if I can dig it up.

Has anyone here been looking at OpenAI/GPT-3 stuff? It's scary but fascinating. It's also a tangled story. From my understanding, GitHu's Copilot is based on it. But it is can do a lot more than just generate code.

Lean Coffee (#lean-coffee), sponsored by LaunchDarkly (#xpo-launchdarkly) 2. Birds of a Feather (in the Birds of a Feather room in Gather and any of the #bof-* channels), sponsored by LaunchDarkly (#xpo-launchdarkly) @suzette.johnson5 is also hosting a special Birds of a Feather session on Industrial DevOps (#bof-industrial-devops) today.

Brandon Baker (IT MGR - O'Reilly Auto Parts)16:10:00

Are there any conversations happening that discuss the relation between staffing and transformation of team structures? As a specific example, say you have 3 network engineers and your company decides they need 4 product teams. I'm interested how others have successfully handled situations like these. My guess is that this is being discussed somewhere and I just can't find it 🙂
