It Begins

We started the #SpeedOfLife campaign last week, yay!

It has been a bumpy start but we’re happily moving forward. The first person I spoke with about delivering software at the speed of life was our CEO at Armory, DROdio. I posted a snippet of our conversation on Twitter last week and here that is 👇🏾

First Live Stream

A live stream happened.

I’ll let you be the judge of whether or not it was successful. It was mildly chaotic on my end but next time it will be better, I promise! We had at least one live viewer (shoutout to Morgan Lucas) and something awesome came out of my call into the void for a last-minute guest.

I got a DM from a Performance Engineering Lead at MathWorks. She’s interested in collaborating so hopefully I will be able to share a conversation between the two of us soon. I was able to chat with several people from the Armory crew about #SpeedOfLife and what it means to them. It’s awesome to share their perspectives, but I’m super-excited to involve more of the DevOps community.

#SpeedOfLife Examples Through Our Customer Stories

I edited the rest of my conversation with DROdio. I actually over-edited and a few words were lost. At 0:17 to 0:19 the words “Hall of” are dropped from the mention of Armory’s Hall of Innovation Award. Also, at 0:45, after DROdio speaks about the transformation at Autodesk. He says, “it’s a SaaS transformation.” Somehow, I dropped the SaaS from that sentence in editing so I removed the line. These little hiccups bother me so I may redo the video and make an update to this blog post when I do.

Bonus: click here to check out the AWS re:Invent talk that DROdio mentions.

Look out for #SpeedOfLife on our social channels. I’ll be back next Tuesday with another blog.
