DevOps + IoT + Security = No Secrets @ IoT Medellin

¿Cómo se relaciona la cultura DevOps y de que manera beneficia al mundo IoT? ¿Qué nos dicen las estadísticas actuales sobre la seguridad de IoT? ¿Cuáles son las herramientas disponibles para garantizar que nuestros pipelines nos lleven a ciclos de mantenimiento predictivo saludables y que no provoquen "incendios" inesperados?, se revelarán este y otros "secretos" y los resultados te sorprenderán. Lo que decidas hacer después de esto hará una gran diferencia

Success in tech: Fostering DevOps Culture @ IWD GDG Capital

When it comes to the DevOps approach, we are not talking about the latest diet or fad or fashion. The DevOps culture explained in a simple way and its approach in the world of Web & IOT and how does it benefit the process, improving pipelines and improving the quality of our releases device, code and infrastructure wise. What about security? what is the state? did we know that the majority of developers don’t trust the same systems/devices/firmware they are releasing?, are we shipping to production based on pressure and/or the whims of a non-understanding market? What is it there to do to make sure we release quality over quantity?. How does this all relate?. I will share the secrets and not so secret information and leave you with it… you decide your course of action!!

Women Who Code St. Louis - Success in tech: Fostering DevOps Culture

When it comes to the DevOps approach, we are not talking about the latest diet or fad or fashion. The DevOps culture explained, in a simple way, is increased collaboration between the roles of development and operations. A slightly more complex explanation is improving pipelines, release quality, devices, code, and infrastructure. And then there's all of the details: What about security? What is the state? (Did we know that the majority of developers don’t trust the same systems/devices/firmware they are releasing?) Are we shipping to production because we are facing pressure and/or the whims of a non-understanding market? What should we do to make sure we release quality over quantity? How does this all relate? I will share secret (and not-so-secret) information and leave you with it … you decide your course of action!

Make Room Not War: Inclusion Means All Y'All @ NA WTM Summit

After 18 years of ups and downs in the tech industry, Diana Rodriguez has seen good, bad and ugly. Leading worldwide community organisation for a non-profit has been an interesting experience where she found herself advocating for the exact same things she had to stand up for 18 years ago. In a sincere and honest talk about diversity, inclusion and evolution in the tech ecosystem, this isn’t a SJW rant. It’s an account of the mishaps of a woman in tech who decided to make a difference. (what do you reckon?)

Let's talk about eliminating the frustration factor!. In our fast paced industry, multi-cloud architectures face many different challenges and for some, the immutable flow is "utopic" and difficult to maintain.

With a few tips, "baking" images can be easier than baking cupcakes!

How to boot & use an external hard drive on new mac minis

I "rescued" a 2018 mac mini(8th Gen i3, 8Gb Ram, 128SSD). My idea was to use it for my personal home recording studio. I read the ram was upgradeable but the storage is sadly soldered into the unit. iFixit awarded the new Mac mini a repairability score of 6/10, with 10 being the easiest to repair, topping the latest MacBook Air, MacBook, MacBook Pro, iMac, and iMac Pro, and trailing only the 2013 Mac Pro.
