Talks

DevOps is dead, Servers are dying, and I don't feel so great myself.

A look at the changing landscape for Operations. With SRE and Kubernetes both on the rise we’re seeing drastic changes in the way we build and operate infrastructure. At the same time Serverless has exploded onto the scene and confused things even further.
