DevOps, Cloud, Automation and more! (Part 1 of 2)

Accepted Session
Scheduled: Tuesday, June 21, 2011 from 7:00 – 8:30pm in B201


Lightning talks and discussions on devops best practices, cloud infrastructures, and automation tools.


Join us for lightning talks and discussions on exciting topics in devops best practices, cloud infrastructures (e.g. VMware Cloud Foundry, Rackspace Cloud, Amazon Web Services, openstack, etc), and tools (e.g. Puppet, Chef, etc).

This BoF will be a great way to meet fellow practitioners and experts building the tools and platforms of the future. You’ll be able to find out what cool things others are doing and share your ideas.

If you’d like to give a short talk, 3-15 minutes, please prepare and mention it at the beginning of the meeting so we can add you to the agenda. We’ll spend the rest of the time in open discussions, which will be awesome.

Expect to meet engineers from Puppet Labs, VMware, RackSpace Cloud, openstack and other organizations in this industry. There will also be swag, like books and t-shirts.

The Portland DevOps User Group and the Portland AWS User Group meet regularly to discuss these sorts of topics, see and for details.

IMPORTANT: If you don’t already have a ticket for the Open Source Bridge conference, you’ll need to either buy one or register for a free “Community Pass” that will let you into the Friday unconference, Hacker Lounge and the evening BoFs:
