Sending 300 Employees to a DevOps Conference
Last year, I was able to attend 18 DevOps conferences. I saw some awesome presentations, met incredible people, and expanded my knowledge of the latest practices. While my role as the DevOps Advocate for Sonatype enables me to get out to all of these conferences, not everyone has the time, the budget, or the approval to get to even one event a year.
This is what led me and my colleague, Mark Miller, to found the All Day DevOps conference last year. Our dream was to build a DevOps conference for the masses. We decided to offer 57 online sessions over 15 hours and 15 times zones, and registration would be free. Our initial goal was to see if we could find 1000 people to attend (because that sounded like a big number at the time), but the idea of a free online event caught a viral wind and we ended up having over 13,500 people register to attend.
