I m really pleased to say that we at Black Marble are hosting a Yorkshire venue for the upcoming Global DevOps Bootcamp, to quote the main bootcamp site…
“Global DevOps Bootcamp is a global event that will be held on Saturday June 17th and is all about DevOps on the Microsoft Stack. Centrally organized by Xpirit and Solidify and offered to you by Black Marble. During this 1-day event we will join (Microsoft) DevOps communities all around the world to talk, learn and play with DevOps concepts.
Goals of the GlobalDevOpsBootcamp:
* DevOps in general
* Insights into where we are heading when it comes to DevOps and new technologies
* Get people's hands dirty and let them play with all the good Microsoft DevOps stuff
This year’s theme will be "From server to serverless in a DevOps world".
We will kick off with an introduction of no one less than Donovan Brown, followed by a keynote from the local partner about where we are heading with DevOps.
After that it’s time to get your hands dirty! Competing in groups you will transform an existing “traditional” application into a fully-fledged, containerized or Serverless application. Naturally you need to take care of all the DevOps practices like monitoring, pipelines and collaboration.”
There is a specific site register for the Black Marble venue

Great day at DDDNorth yesterday, hope everyone enjoyed it. Thanks to all the team who helped during the preparation and on the day.
The slides from Rik Hepworth and my presentation on ‘Living the dream - Real world DevOps with Azure and VSTS’ are up at Github.
We were a late stand in session to cover for a presenter who could not attend on the day. So I hope it was not too much of let down, that we were not the speaker on the agenda, covered a different subject and did not match the title the spell checker converted out session title too. Though ‘Devils with Arms and Cats’ is maybe a good term for DevOps?
As to the grok talk I did at lunchtime on developing VSTS extension with VS Code, there are no slides; but look at these past posts, building VSTS tasks with Powershell and putting a release process around vsts extension development they are on similar subjects.

There have been some requests for more information about the areas I convered in my presentation at the Black Marble Tech Update 2016 that we held last week.
I could send out slides, but I think it is far more useful to point you at the ‘live’ resource on the Internet. The key reason for this is that the whole of the Visual Studio family is now being released at a ‘cloud cadence’ i.e. new features are appearing rapidly, so anything I write will soon be out of date. Better to look at the live sources where possible.
Hope you find these useful pointers
Thanks to everyone who came to my session at DDDNorth on SonarQube, hope you found it useful. The links to resources for my session are

Pleased to say my session on SonarQube has been accepted for DDDNorth. And it seems that registration has opened and closed today, there is a wait list up now
Good to see the DDD events still popular after 10 long years
