For a few years we have regularly organized this User Group for the BeNeLux Dynatrace community at several customer locations. We were looking for a good theme for our next event. In Las Vegas, off all places, I bumped into Andreas Grabner (Dynatrace), who calls himself a “DevOps Activist”. For a year or so, he has really been into promoting Keptn (pronounced like captain), which is “an event-based control plane for continuous delivery and automated operations for cloud-native applications”.
I have been following Keptn for a while now since it is spot-on for our Realdolmen BizDevOps Services organization, enabling automated Quality Gates into pipelines and even Self Healing. So I had to ask following question: “Andi, would you like to come to Belgium as a speaker for our user group?”. Answer: “Yes sure, would the 14th of May fit?”. And the rest is history.
Now let’s hope that the Corona Virus is out of the country and the world by May 14!
