This week we’re rounding up some of the interesting responses we got to our weekly DOES15 Twitter Contest – where you can win a signed copy of Gene Kim’s The Phoenix Project, or a free ticket to DOES15 this October in San Francisco!
The contest is still going on. Do you have something to say or experiences to share with the software development community? Now is your chance! Participating is easy! First, check out @DOESSummit on twitter every Tuesday and Thursday to see that day’s poll. Next, tweet your responses with the hashtag #DOES15 to enter for a chance to win.
Every Friday, two participants are selected as weekly winners of The Phoenix Project. Every tweet sent in response to any of our weekly polling questions also counts as an entry for the grand prize – a free pass to DevOps Enterprise Summit! The grand prize winner will be selected on August 14th.
So far, we have been receiving great responses to our queries! Whether it was past lessons learned, predictions for future trends, or – our personal favorite – hilariously awesome DevOps memes and gifs, the DevOps community continues to impress.
Check out the past questions we’ve posed and some of the winning answers, plus honorable mentions we loved reading!
