Presented by

Thomas Hazel (ChaosSearch), Brian Bost (ChaosSearch), Kieran Dunbar (ChaosSearch), and Jimmy McDermott (Transeo)

About this talk

Working in DevOps, you’re a problem solver by trade. You love being part of a mission-critical business function and you pride yourself on delivering fail-proof infrastructure that performs reliably and at scale. But you don’t love the 2am wake-up calls when there’s an issue with your Elasticsearch cluster. You don’t love missing family birthday parties and social events because you can’t turn work off at the end of the day like others can. This session serves as a meeting of the minds between current and former DevOps pros. They’ll share battle stories along with best practices, lessons learned, and technology “hacks” they’ve learned along the way to improve the stability of their environments (and get more sleep). Attendees will gain tips and tricks for managing a more seamless environment, and you’ll probably get a few laughs in too during this high-spirited session! Hear from: Thomas Hazel, CTO and Founder at ChaosSearch, Brian Bost, Sales Engineer at ChaosSearch, Kieran Dunbar, Senior Customer Success Engineer at ChaosSearch, and Jimmy McDermott, CTO and Founder at Transeo
