Normally, I would be writing this a few weeks ago, but sometimes the world just takes the luxury of time away from you. In this case, I couldn’t be happier though as I’m about to part of something that I believe is going to be really really amazing. This event is really a testimony to Brent Salisbury and John Willis’s commitment to community and their relentless pursuit of trying to evolve the whole industry, bringing along as many of the friends they’ve made along the way as possible.
Given the speaker list, I don’t believe there’s been any event in recent ( or long term!) memory that has such an amazing list of speakers. The most amazing part is that this event was really put together in the last month!!!!
If you’re in the bay area, you should definitely be there. If you’re not in the area, you should buy a plane ticket as you might not ever get a chance like this again.
DevOps Forum for Networking
From the website
previously known as DevOps4Networks is an event started in 2014 by John Willis and Brent Salisbury to begin a discussion on what Devops and Networking will look like over the next five years. The goal is to create a conversation for change similar to what CloudCamp did for Cloud adoption and DevopsDays for Devops.

Yup. What an amazing list and for the low low price of $100, you can join us as well!
I’m absolutely honoured and, to be honest, a little intimidated to be sharing a spot with some of the industry luminaries who have been guiding lights personally for me in the last five years. I’m hoping to be a little education, a little entertaining, and other than that, I’ll be in the front row with a box of popcorn soaking up as much as I can from the rest of the speakers.
Hope to see you there!
