Last week I was able to get the most out of my trip to Austin by attending Puppet Camp and then DevOpsDays. Puppet Camp was a high quality event with great sessions. The content was quite varied and really resonated with me. I’ve noticed that the Puppet community is undergoing phenomenal growth and I’m impressed with the level of community engagement.

@GrandmaHenri, a technical writer at Puppet Labs, presented a session on how to document modules on the Puppet Forge. This should keep the quality of
I just got back from attending a few back-to-back events. One of which was ChefConf 2013. It was my first ChefConf and it was a really high energy event with a wide variety of speakers and attendees. I chose to focus on the sessions covering culture, but there were many great sessions.
The first memorable session was “Scaling systems configuration at Facebook,” presented by Phil Dibowitz from Facebook.

Continuous Delivery is all the rage for dev teams and the release management / application delivery marketplace. And rightfully so, as it is the application delivery methodology that lets App Dev deliver the code. It saves time and money as it cuts the time for applications to be delivered into production.

Thank you for the feedback on this blog series that examines how Serena gains insight from our customers into where our solutions need to develop. I have tried to respond to every one of the emails but apologies if I missed one. This time I thought we’d take a little sidestep and hear from one of our partners.

This never gets old. Innovation and validation, that is. Serena’s innovation in the broad realm of ITIL processes was validated almost a year ago when we won Pink Elephant’s prestigious ITIL Innovation of the Year Award. The new news is that we’ve just been selected as a finalist for this year’s award, further validating our ongoing innovation.
We call our customer conference xChange because it is an opportunity to exchange ideas and insights. It is a once-a-year coming-together of the customer’s best and brightest with Serena’s leadership and development teams.

In this 5-episode blog series I am going to introduce you to some of the key contributors that have helped shape and frame Serena’s direction. Through their experience and knowledge we have created leading solutions to businesses technology issues.
Our first contribution comes
