Voxxed Days Milan 2020 - Open Career, Microservice Questions, and DevOps Heroes

voxxed days milan
The usual process is to wait for the conference call for papers (Voxxed Days Milan) to close before publishing the sessions and workshops submitted, but this time it's going to be promotion of the event above the talks submitted!

Voxxed Days Milan 2020 shall be hosted on a single day, May 16th 2020 in Milan, Italy. The organizers reached out for some help publicizing their event and getting you, the great speakers in our developer communities, motivated to submit your ideas for Voxxed Days Milan call for papers.

It's worth noting, any talks you end up giving are going to be recorded. After the conference all videos of the talks will eventually be published online. You can enjoy previous’ year edition of Voxxed Days Milan 2019 recordings here. Even those not at Voxxed Days Milan can watch them, but the real fun was being there.

I'll admit, I got a bit excited as the event looks to be great fun and in a wonderful city full of history and vibrant life. I might have gone a bit overboard but submitted no less than three ideas; one is a workshop overview, one is an insightful look at integration challenges, and the final one is a keynote on how open can be the key to your career.

Below my submissions to Voxxed Days Milan 2020:

DevOps Heroes: Adding automation integration to your toolbox

DevOps is more than the process of automating your CI/CD pipelines to generate code and deployment artifacts. It's also about organizational change and integration of many subtle processes that help you to deliver and manage applications seamlessly. Let's unlock the power of process integration in a live coding session. We'll install the tooling, build the project components, and deploy a DevOps testing automation integration project right in front of your eyes. Best of all, everything is freely available in an online self-paced workshop format to pursue at home. Join me for some DevOps fun!

5 Questions Everyone Ignores with Microservices

The daily hype is all around you. Microservices are a necessary step along the path to integration for a digitally successful future for your organization. Funny enough, when discussing the development impact while transitioning to microservices, there are five questions that keep popping up. This session covers the questions that everyone should ask about microservices. Join us for an hour of power, where real life developer experiences are used to highlight the lessons we're all learning as we transition our integration infrastructure into modern day microservices.

Open Key to Your Career

It's not coincidence. It's not luck. It's not going to happen by itself, so what's the secret sauce? Understanding what makes a career in open source grow, what choices are crucial, and what actions accelerate or damage your open source future are sometimes hard to grasp. Learning to position, expand and grow your personal brand in the open source world is what this session provides. Be ready for your next step in open source. Join me for an hour of power where you'll be given a clear and easy to use plan for jump starting your open source career immediately.  

Fingers crossed and I'll see you there!
