Sam Newman's site, a Consultant at ThoughtWorks

Archive for ‘August, 2012’

The video of my Designing For Rapid Release talk that I did at GeeCon is now available. Thanks to Lukasz and the rest of the GeeCon 2012 team for a really memorable conference – I’m already looking forward to GeeCon 2013!

For over a year now I have been running day-long training sessions on AWS with ThoughtWorks. I have helped rollout this training globally, giving sessions in both Australia and the USA. The course covers the main building blocks of the AWS offering, including:

  • EC2
  • EBS
  • S3

A mix of theory and hands-on sections, it is ideal for anyone interested in getting started with AWS. Attendees need only a basic knowledge of a command-line, although any *NIX experience is a bonus.

I have presented this course multiple times for public and private classes. We are currently offering this course in several locations – if you are interested in this course for a private occasion or conference then please contact me.

This talk focuses on the drivers behind, and the main advantages of Continuous Delivery. Focused at a higher level than some of my other talks, it should appeal to both a technical and business audience.

You can view a video of the presentation I gave at one of the ThoughtWorks QTB events in 2011.
