TL;DR = HashiCorp makes cool stuff for IT Ops (and more). I'm going to HashiConf while on sabbatical to learn more and write about it. Depending on how we met, you might not know that my career started with 7 years in an IT Operations hands-on role at a university. This involved a little bit … Continue reading HashiConf 2018!

This is my first Oracle OpenWorld so wanted to prioritize getting to one keynote at least. Starting out as many keynotes do with a DJ onstage - the hall is moderate sized. Definitely not small … Continue reading [Live Blog] Oracle OpenWorld 2017 Monday Keynote
Same DJ in between keynotes as before the first keynote. Everyone has wristbands underneath their chairs so can participate in the keynote in some way. Presumably Azure can make lots of LEDs blink at the same time. https://twitter.com/andriven/status/912327443146567680 Starting with Scott Guthrie, MS Executive VP (I think) - time to go deeper into MS Azure … Continue reading [Live Blog] Microsoft Ignite 2017 – Azure Technology Keynote
