I had the pleasure of presenting at the first DevOps Perth meet-up last week. On the night it came as a bit of a surprise to me that people weren’t really aware of how the DevOps movement started. So I thought it would be a good idea to share a few links and people you should follow on twitter if you’re interested in learning more.
John Allspaw and Paul Hammond gave a talk at Velocity 2009 on how Flickr deploy to production 10+ times a day and how Development and Operations get along, which (IMO) kickstarted the movement. This talk inspired me and my team at the time to build a DevOps culture at Lonely Planet and is well worth the 46 minute investment – it’s a game changer!
