Presentation Summary:

10 years ago, the world had yet to hear of "DevOps." The software development landscape was cold, unforgiving, and littered with power-mad systems administrators who held all of the keys in your quest for success as a developer.

OK, so there may be a little hyperbole there. But the software development industry is changing rapidly, and we've gained a lot of ground even just in the past decade. Take a trip down memory lane with Tommy as he explores some of his experiences with systems administration and software development, and how he's learned to apply those lessons to the DevOps approach he enables at Treehouse.

About the Speaker:

Tommy Morgan is the Vice President of Engineering at Treehouse, and has been in the software development industry for over a decade. Through his career he's worked with some very interesting companies - from self-described "lobster trap" companies (it's as bad as it sounds) you've never heard of to top brands like Coca-Cola. As a big fan of learning from your mistakes, Tommy leans on his experiences as a developer, system administrator, and manager to guide process and policy across his team of web, mobile, data, and infrastructure engineers.

About the Venue:

Treehouse is an online school that looks to bring affordable technology education to people everywhere. We want to help people achieve their dreams by giving them a helpful, highly interactive, and well-designed education experience that lets them learn development in ways that weren't possible (or affordable) even five years ago. As technology becomes more and more a part of our daily lives, it becomes even more essential for people to be able to interact with technology in a meaningful way. Making that education available to everyone, we believe, will change the world. https://teamtreehouse.com/
