Do your peers come to you when they need help with networking?
Are the the one that has to trace down problems with local networking resources?
Do you know the server is down because your Slack DMs blow up?

If you answer yes to any of these, congratulations, you are "DevOps". Every company has DevOps people, whether they call them that or not. These are the people that fix things, patch software, that help developers stay focused on developing.

In this session I will share with you lessons learned form 9+ years of being "the server person". We will cover topics like:
- Stop using WAMP/MAMP and start using Vagrant
- Version control isn't renaming files
- Automate common tasks with shell scripts / command line PHP apps
- From Vagrant to Production

Join me. Embrace your inner DevOps

Joe gave some really great practice advice that you don't even need to be a devops engineer to make life better for your company.

Really enjoyed this talk. Joe used his extensive experience to show how any developer can have a positive impact in devops for companies that don't have an ops team.

This talk made me realize that I was definitively the DevOps guy at my tiny company. That fact alone made it worth attending. I didn't read the abstract before attending though, so most of the talk was me sitting there saying to myself, "Yup, that's what I'm doing....Yup, did that on my first day there....Yeah, BT;DT...." etc

This was a bit more basic than I was expecting, but that is all on me, not Joe at all. Like I said, I didn't read the abstract.
All in all, the stories and lessons-learned were very valuable for people thrust into the role of DevOps, or eager to transition into it from developer status.
