Video with John Allspaw at Etsy: What to put on the big dashboards


Damon Edwards / 

I had the pleasure of visting the folks at Etsy recently. Etsy is well known in DevOps circles for their Continuous Deploymet and Metrics efforts.

I’ll be posting more videos soon, but in the meantime here is a quick hit I recorded with John Allspaw while he gave me a tour of their Brooklyn HQ. I had just asked John about how they decide what to put on the big dashboards on the wall.

Here is what he told me…

Kohsuke Kawaguchi stopped by the Silicon Valley DevOps Meetup on June 7, 2011 to give an in-depth tour of Jenkins. Kohsuke is the founder of both the Hudson and the Jenkins open source projects and now works for CloudBees.

Kohsuke’s presentation covered not only the Jenkins basics but also more advanced topics like distributed builds in the cloud, the matrix project, and build promotion. Video and slides are below.

Once again, thanks to for hosting the event!

DTO at Velocity 2011

John Willis / 

Meet the DTO team at Velocity 2011.  Damon, Alex, myself and the rest of the gang will be attending Velocity in full force thus year.  We will have a booth again this year and we will also have a special guest @lusis (a.k.a. John Vincent) the author of Noah.  John, Alex, and myself plan on giving a killer booth demo using Rundeck, Chef, and Noah integrating command and control, orchestraion, convergence and good old fashion configuration management.  The demo will highlight multiple components of what we call the “Loosely Coupled Toolchain”.  Damon and Lee Thompson will be giving a presentation “Automating for Success: Production Begins in Development” and of course we will be attending and speaking at DevopsDays Mountainview.  Please stop by to spread some #devops love at the booth if you don’t see us in the hall.

Mitchell Hashimoto shows why Vagrant is a cool and useful tool (video)

Damon Edwards / 

At last night’s San Francisco DevOps Meetup, Mitchell Hashimoto (creator of Vagrant) was the featured speaker.

Mitchell gave a quick overview of why Vagrant is important and then gets into some interesting and useful tips and tricks. 

Vagrant is one of those interesting tools that has bubbled up from the DevOps community. It’s relatively easy to use and shows that there is a better way to do things (in this case, using virtualization to improve the development and testing lifecycle).
