There were a number of freeform lightening talks used as an excellent device to get the conversation started. Below is an interesting talk from DTO’s Anthony Shortand. Anthony gave an excellent conceptual introduction to two strategies for solving DevOps problems, “Full Lifecycle Traceability” and “Establishing a Formal Separation of Concerns”.
InfoQ.com has posted the videos they recorded at DevOps Day USA 2010. You can watch six of the seven panels now on the InfoQ.com site. There was a production problem with the seventh panel (“DevOps outside of WebOps”) that, if it can be fixed, will be posted as well. InfoQ decided that the lightening talks didn’t fit into their format so they have sent my co-organizer, Andrew Shafer the raw video and he’s going to look into posting them himself.

Here are the links to the 6 panels…
Your mileage may vary: Experiences and lessons learned facing DevOps problems in the IT trenches (even if they weren’t calling it DevOps!). The good, the bad, the surprises, and ideas for the future.
Does the Cloud needs DevOps? Does DevOps need the Cloud?: Examining the role that cloud technologies can play in solving DevOps problems and the role that DevOps solutions can play in getting the most out of cloud technologies.
Making the business case: We know that solving DevOps problems improves your business operations and improves the bottom line, but how do you do you explain that to your CEO or CFO? How do you get the executives to buy in and invest in DevOps solutions?
EDIT: The recording for seventh panel was rescued from technical oblivion and is now live!…
DevOps outside of Web Operations: Much of the public discussion about DevOps focuses on Web Operations. This panel is about taking the lessons of DevOps to other types of IT. Adam Fletcher – ITA Software Gene Kim – Tripwire Michael Stahnke – James Turnbull – Puppet Labs John Willis – Opscode moderator: Patrick Debois http://www.infoq.com/presentations/DevOps-outside-Web-Operations
My fellow dev2ops.org contributor, Lee Thompson, and I were asked to be a part of an impromptu panel discussion that kicked off OpsCamp San Francisco.
The results were an interesting and organic conversation that ranged from “DevOps”, to “repository and dependency management”, to “security is not compliance”, to “managing multiple data centers”, and to a variety of other topics in the span of 24 minutes.
Luckily, we got it all on video. (Special thanks to Erica Brescia from Bitnami for doing the camera work!)
