DevOps for the Database
Why is it hard to apply DevOps principles and practices to databases, and how can we get better at it? This talk explores real-life stories that answer these two questions, through the perspectives of teams that have changed the entrenched culture, processes, and tooling—and those who’ve tried. Along the way, we’ll cover topics including:
  • What the research shows about DevOps, databases, and company performance
  • Current and emerging trends in how we build and manage data tiers, and implications
  • The traditional dedicated DBA role, and what has happened as a result
  • What it takes to change from a DBA-centric culture, to one where database-related competencies and responsibilities are more distributed
  • Why some teams succeed in this transformation, while others fail
We can apply DevOps principles to the database, and our work will be better for it. This talk will show you how

Embarrassingly Large Numbers: Salary Negotiation for Humans
If you wait for your hard work to get noticed and someone to offer you a salary beyond the wildest dreams of avarice, you will probably starve to death. The world is unfair; the people who get paid the most ask for it. This talk won't do much to fix the sorry state of the world, but it will give insight from a former attorney and former hiring manager on how to maneuver within the world we currently inhabit. Come learn how to negotiate constructively—because "f*ck you, pay me" is surprisingly unhelpful in a corporate setting.

Driving new technology in large organizations
In this talk, I discuss methodologies, pros, cons, and potential pitfalls of the two routes to implementing a new type of technology:
  • Formal project process
  • Run a skunk works project
This is geared towards the engineer who must realize that technology won’t sell itself. In order to prevent it from becoming abandonware, we need to take certain steps to ensure long-term viability and maintainability.

DevOps vs SRE - Competing standards or friends?
Google has been practicing Site Reliability Engineering (SRE) since the early 2000’s but only recently began speaking about it publicly. Some have called SRE “DevOps 2.0”, while others view it as a competing standard. This talk discusses the differences and similarities between DevOps and SRE.
