UPDATE 04 March 2020: 
The Codemotion organization have decided to move this event to June 11-12, so I'm all in again. See you in Rome in June!

UPDATE 02 March 2020: 
With regret in my heart I've had to pull out of this conference. The health concerns for this area have create travel policy changes and concerns to the point of me canceling my attendance. I'll be resubmitting this talk again in the future and hope to make it up to the Codemotion Rome organization.

----------------------------------------------------- 

 It's been two years since I last presented at Codemotion Rome,  so it's nice to be invited back this year to get reacquainted with old friends in Italy.

Back in October 2019 three talks were submitted covering topics:
  • DevOps Heros
  • 5 questions  everyone ignores with microservices
  • Open key to your career.
The first acceptance has arrived and  I'll be presenting on how open is key to your career in March 2020.
