Dev Ops Videos

It was an exciting event this month, made more so by the building falling apart and our entrance being blocked. Thank you to the University porters for sorting late access through another part of the building open, and thank you to those who helped direct people round to the temporary entrance. We should be back to normal next month.

By popular demand (well two people asked for them) here are the videos of this month’s event.

could be applied else where.

At GitHub we host 10 million repositories for over 4 million people. I will share with you how we deploy hundreds of times a day, manage hundreds of nodes and build GitHub, all using a chat bot named Hubot. Hubot was built at GitHub and quickly became the core of many of our processes, as well as a powerful culture tool. This talk will give you a look how we get stuff done and still have time to drop some pug bombs.
