Equal Experts was proud to be a sponsor of Pipeline 2015 yesterday.
EE was well represented as I was joined by Antonio Terreno, Alun Coppack, Theresa Cantwell, Charles Kubicek, Tony Bruce (and of course Steve Smith, part of the Pipeline crew) and we all had a great time.
The day was kicked off with an inspirational keynote from Linda Rising (a few days after turning 73 – Happy Birthday Linda!).
The rest of the talks and open spaces provided a really interesting variety of topics covering Continuous Delivery much more broadly than the stereotype of just DevOps and deployment tooling. My day concluded with a full house for Dave Farley (who did, after all, “write the book”).
The organising team have done an amazing job again this year; others considering organising an industry conference should learn from them.
Take their proposal review process, for example – a blind selection that aims to encourage diversity by removing bias – and their anti-harassment policy for a template of how to create a conference which is informative, fun and safe for everyone involved.
