"DevOpsDays is a participant's conference" isn't just a platitude, it's core to what makes the DevOpsDays community great. This is my take on how we as organizers make that happen.

Found this note on my iPad as I was jotting down some other thoughts:

"Patterns of successful companies: people misunderstood the idea behind why you standardize work, you don't standardize work to make people robots. You standardize work to enable experimentation. If you don't have a standardized process, you can't improve because there is no baseline to improve from."

Pretty sure it's from +Damon Edwards, but I don't clearly recall. Thoughts anyone? It's a great quote and I'd like to use it, but I don't want to without attribution.

Excellent dissection of common workplace perks with a incisive summary of how focusing on shared values is more beneficial than any perk.

I've been continuing to play with #logstash  .  It's a seriously cool technology, and once you understand it, quite accessible as well. #devops   #kibana   #elasticsearch

We often use logs to debug after something's gone wrong... What if we were able to use that information to answer questions about our apps in near real-time?  Enter Logstash.

+Bryan Fullerton, I'm looking at you.   ;)

It took some doing, but I've managed to alphabetize Jekyll site tags in pure Liquid - allowing the site to be hosted via GitHub Pages.  +Keith Senkowski, gauntlet thrown.

Erin and I took a trip to Yosemite a few weeks ago.  It was absolutely amazing.

Something that Grails developers may find handy when trying to maintain backward compatibility on a GitHub hosted project...

If you're wanting to experiment with metrics collection or a snazzy new dashboard, it's likely you'll want something like Graphite & StatsD to collect or supply the data.  This Vagrant config will help get you there.
