Lightning Talk: The Future of Humans in a World of Automation - Kendall Miller, ReactiveOps

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
The cloud providers have built service after service in an attempt to automate away the need for ops professionals. So where is the future for people in ops? Is there a future or should the engineers who are building tools for engineers get out now?

This will be a fast paced discussion about the places where people are still needed, and an argument for why people will always be needed, even if in less numbers than before.

Yes, the world is bleak and terrifying. Yes, AWS is literally out to remove the need for you on this planet. But there is still hope.... (And I'm not talking about a future where ops people are paid $500/hr like COBOL devs are because they've become so rare...)
