DevOps World | Jenkins World 2018

And it’s a wrap!

This year’s DevOps World | Jenkins World 2018 wrapped up yesterday.  It was a very good show.  Our team had released the Free version of DevOptics earlier, but we spent all last week polishing… and some of this week too – the beauty of a SaaS product.

The event is at the San Francisco Marriott Marquis, in the big rooms of the Yerba Buena level.  The event is larger every year:

The setup for the keynotes was very nice.  These media guys do an outstanding job.  Last year they had 2 Christie Boxer 4k30 (that is 4K pixels, 30K lumens, 2,000:1 contrast!), projectors combined to provide a (very large) screen resolution of 3640×1050.  This year they had 4 of these beasts: two were used for the two side screens and two more overlapped to deliver a very cute round center screen.  The 2 overlapping projectors are at the edges of the room and there is no shadow behind the speaker

Here is Christina in front of the rotating globe.  Very sharp looking.

Kohsuke gave his usual Community Keynote, and then Sacha and Christina presented.  DevOptics got a piece of the keynote:

The main announcement was CloudBees suite – we are at the top, over CloudBees CodeShip and CloudBees Core (based on Jenkins):

The trade show had nice attendance.  This year I was not running the DevOptics booth, at the back of the picture – which suited me well, I was busy keeping an eye on the actual system.

The product itself behaved very nicely.  No service interruptions (yeah!) and only a few new bugs.  We actually fixed several during the week — SaaS FTW.   I’ll write a follow-up post on that part of the show experience this weekend.

And next year the show goes to a bigger stage – the Moscone Center!
