We kicked off the worlds largest DevOps meetup in 2015 with over 300 attendees, making this our largest meetup yet!

This month we decided to focus on Software Defined Infrastructure. There are lots of cool tools that people are using from Ansible, Cloudformation, Chef Metal, Heat, Terraform and a bunch of others. We’ve picked what we think are 3 interesting talks that demonstrate the power of Software Defined Infrastructure. This is the engine that sits behind most self service deployment portals in companies.

If you want to join our next meetup at the end of March, then sign up here.
