My trip to the DevOps Victoria meetup started with a 35 minute hop from Vancouver to Victoria by seaplane. Wonderful weather, turbulence (thanks Alex!), and a relaxing 10 minute stroll from the Victoria harbor to the meetup.
The meetup was hosted at Victopia, described as “a co-working space in old town Victoria. It’s a community of independent entrepreneurs enjoying the synergy of working alongside like-minded business people actively engaged in building a successful business”. Here’s a few images from the fascinating co-working space…
The suggested topics for the Open Space were Feature Flags and Toggles, Roles in DevOps or Positions, and Launching Darkly.
We explored and discussed a wide range of topics, all aligned with the proposed agenda 🙂 Deployment rings were definitely dominating the discussions, whereby we cover them and feature flags in more detail in our DevOps Transformation Guide.
Looking back, the Open Space concept was interesting, triggering a variety of interesting, vibrant, and valuable discussions. It fosters collaboration, a major ingredient of the DevOps secret sauce, and one of the core reasons I love to support these meetups.
We’ll I am heading back to the other side of the pond, to resume the DevOps and CloudOps adventures at WorkSafeBC.
