Cloud, open source, and agile

I was able to have Michael Cotes and John Willis, hosts of the IT Management and Cloud Podcast, present to the IT organization last week as part of a new fiscal year kickoff event. They were informative and entertaining.

They delivered a customized overview of cloud concepts, open source, and the agile methodology, most of which can be seen at Michael’s site, Cote’s People Over Process.

I really loved a thought from John – He says operations people are like cicadas…. They come back into the limelight every seventeen years and clean-up the mess left by all the hype and latest and greatest technologies.

Rock on John!
