You can sign up for the event "Automate Azure builds with Ansible Tower". We will go deep into Ansible, Ansible Tower and show you how to automate "All the things in Azure". I was able to have a fireside chat with Moez Dharani from Red Hat where we talked about everything from the history of Ansible, DevOps and some of the early opensource projects that laid the foundation for many of todays emerging technologies. We also discussed the business aspects of DevOps, automation and how every business now a days needs to focus on technology and software. Moez shared some compelling stories from the Oil and Gas industry where customers are embracing Ansible and delivering compelling returns on their investments.

So we all know change is not easy, especially when it involves moving away from what you have be doing successfully for many years. Last week I had the opportunity to attend **F5 Networks - North American Partner Leadership Summit** along with many of F5's top North American Partners. The message from the senior management team was crystal clear, F5 is **changing its stance** in the market and is very serious about rapidly evolving to meet these new market and customer demands.
