Event Details

Join us at First Round Capital's new digs for food, networking and DevOps!

The meaning and specific implementation of a DevOps approach can vary widely.  An organization's development and production needs, the frequency of its production releases, the size of its engineering staff, and the backgrounds and strengths of its engineers can all affect how the business puts DevOps into action.  In their talks, Jeff and John will explain what DevOps means at their own organizations, how their approach to DevOps has evolved, and how to sidestep common pitfalls.


Event Details:
6:00-6:30pm: Arrive, Mingle, Grub

6:30-7:15pm: Jeff Horwitz is the lead Systems Engineer at Monetate, where puppet and chef clients are nowhere in sight.  He'll tell you all about how Monetate does DevOps a bit differently from what you might be used to.

7:15-8:00pm: John Allspaw is the VP of Technical Operations at Etsy, co-chair of Velocity, and author of two books and a blog at  He'll share some knowledge gained over the last 15 years while operating sites for Salon, InfoWorld, Friendster, and Flickr.

Afterwards, please accompany us to Smokey Joe's or City Tap House to continue our discussions!
