Community Building with GitHub's Christian Weber(13 Dec 2018)
Big thanks to GitHub's Cristian Weber for a couple of great talks in Victoria, BC. Starting with the BC DevOps Commons Meetup talking about Continuous Integration spawned some interesting conversation about team composition, trust and automation. Some crossover into the following day's workshop with transparency and team dynamics as we explored building effective development communities and some potential challenges (and techniques to mitigate them) in fostering a collaborative culture in a regulated environment.

Fireside Chat with Loris Degioanni and Knox Anderson from Sysdig(16 Oct 2018)
We have been getting a lot of great feedback on the recent Fireside Chat series we have been posting. This week I am traveling on the west coast and had a stop over in San Francisco for GitHub Universe. I had some time on Monday so I stopped in at the Sysdig office to meet some of the extended team and dig deep into their culture and powerful technology. As we know timing is everything... I managed to get some time with Loris and Knox and have an impromptu fireside chat.
//helping people succeed(16 Jul 2018)
Last week I had the pleasure of having a fireside chat in Toronto with [Kelsey Hightower] from Google at our [Clouds Containers and Kelsey Event]. When I look back at the day it was a ton of fun... It's nice to be reminded of the strong opensource / tech community we have in Toronto and it's refreshing how much we can all learn from each other when we find the time to get together and share our thoughts.
dashai - A Community DevOps Dashboard(07 May 2018)
Arctiq is happy to launch the dashai Community - "YOUR DevOps Dashboard" Why is having quick, easy access to real-time data so hard? Why does the ability to share insight, as a result of that data, across various teams have such a high cost? I have been asking myself these questions for much of my career in technology. I think back to when my team was responsible for large scale web, and electronic payment systems. We always struggled with monitoring, and more specifically understanding the performance and trending information about our systems.
