Codemotion Amsterdam - Sharing pitfalls everyone should avoid

codemotion amsterdam
One of the really interesting and global conference is Codemotion. I've been lucky enough to speak at three different version in Europe.

This year, together with Roel Hodzelmans, we're targeting the Amsterdam conference and going all in with three of our sessions around the popular '3 Pitfalls' series.

First, the popular session revealing the 3 pitfalls everyone should avoid with hybrid multicloud. Second, we dig deeper based on popular demand to provide you with 3 more pitfalls everyone should avoid with hybrid multicloud. Finally, we are expanding the scope to dive into 3 pitfalls everyone should avoid with microservices.

All three bring real life customer experience from our daily interactions and share these in the interest of collaboration and learning. Check out the abstracts for all three talks below.

All Things Open 2018 - Lightning Talk on How To Jump Start a Career in Open Source (slides)

all things openThis week I was in Raleigh, North Carolina from Oct 21-23 speaking at All Things Open.

I gave a lightning talk on how to jump start a career in open source, in just 6 minutes.

The topic is near and dear to my heart, so as a lightning talk it was fun to promote the full session I gave earlier this Summer in one of the most amazing venues I've ever spoken at.

The talk includes links to the recording of that venue and the complete story I told. The only thing missing are the slides, which you'll find here.

All Things Open 2018 - 10 Steps to AppDev in the Cloud Happiness (slides)


This week I've been in Raleigh, North Carolina presenting a session at All Things Open 2018.

It's a hands-on kinda of mini-workshop that was put into session format so that I'd be able to walk you through the process of getting started on cloud application development.

It's not just getting container development working, but getting you started with meaningful enterprise components such as process automation, business logic and integration topics.

Here are the slides from this session with all the links to the material I presented live on stage.

All Things Open 2018 - Lightning talk

all things open
Next week I'll be in Raleigh, North Carolina from Oct 21-23 speaking at All Things Open.

I mentioned my session was accepted, but just last week the organizers reached out to ask if I'd be interested in giving a lighting talk.

That's a short five minute slot to rapidly brief the crowd on a topic before the next speaker is brought on behind you.

I thought it would be a bit of fun to participate and gladly accepted.

The following topic is near and dear to my heart, so as a lightning talk it'll be fun to try to hook the audience into more by following up on the information presented.

I mentioned previously that our talk was accepted for The Linux Foundation Open Networking Summit Europe (ONS) 2018.

ONS brings together business and technical leaders across enterprise, cloud and service providers to share learnings, highlight innovation and discuss the future of open networking and orchestration. ONS Europe will feature 3 days of sessions, including project-based technical sessions, tutorials, workshops, keynotes and more.

3 pitfallsLast week my co-presenter and I hosted a little over 30 attendees for a talk around pitfalls everyone should avoid with hybrid multicloud.

As part of the session a lively discussion was setup through the attendee participation in live polling, spread throughout the presentation slides.

To share the results of their polling, we've updated the slides to include a results slide after each poll question, allowing those who missed the session to see how things shake out.

Check out the slides below:
