The incredible impact and success of Global DevOps Bootcamp
I really want to thank you all for the tremendous effort you put into pulling this together and making it a great success. I’m thrilled to see this kind of event come to life. The concept was really fantastic and the feedback seems to have been quite good. Thanks you very much!” ~ Brian Harry (Corporate Vice President at Microsoft)
After months of preparation by organizers Xpirit and Solidify, Global DevOps Bootcamp was finally happening last Saturday.
With more than 1500 attendees spread over 30 venues in 19 countries worldwide, we had a global reach on all continents. We have burned 8 years of CPU power during the event with 1500 virtual machines running in 8 different Azure data centers, while using the Visual Studio Team Services platform for the ultimate DevOps experience!
“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)
The content was aligned for all venues. How to transform an organization and transition from local server to cloud services. We started with a recorded introduction to DevOps by Donovan Brown. Followed by assignments and a Global Bootcamp competition. We’ve provided a script along with ruleset for the competition and a source code for people to get started. Organizing a Global event is challenging, but it was a huge success.
We’ll be back next year!
