Upcoming GOTO Night: February 25, 2013 with Michael Nygard
Location: Morningstar, 22 West Washington Street, Chicago IL Google Map
Join us for an upcoming DevOps evening with Michael Nygard hosted by GOTO Chicago team. Registration starts at 5:00 PM and we will serve beer, soft drinks and pizza until 6:00 PM. The presentations will begin at 6:00 PM.
Michael Nygard strives to raise the bar and ease the pain for developers across the country. He shares his passion and energy for improvement with everyone he meets, sometimes even with their permission. Living with systems in production taught Michael about the importance of operations and writing production-ready software. Highly-available, highly-scalable commerce systems are his forte.
Michael has written and co-authored several books, including "97 Things Every Software Architect Should Know" and the best seller "Release It!", a book about building software that survives the real world.
Special Thanks to Morningstar who is our venue sponsor for this event.
