InedoCon 2019 will be here before you know it! We hope to see you May 22-23 in Portland, Oregon to join us for: An Automation Journey for Enterprises!
Some of what you’ll learn from our sessions includes:
- WebMD's Continuous Delivery Architect Aaron Jensen will talk about how they successfully transitioned from a monolith application with no automation to a CI/CD platform with dozens of micro-services using BuildMaster.
- Robert Vandehey, Alkami's Vice President and Chief Architect, will show how they componentized a monolith into packages for microservices using ProGet as the key link in their deployment chain.
- BuildMaster's product director John Rasch will demonstrate how you can add CI/CD to a legacy application through build, deployment, and process automation.
- Governmental organizations and other compliant-heavy industries have specific challenges for automation. Jody Dorchester will present how 100’s of applications were automated with BuildMaster in less than a year, while maintaining compliance.
Of course that's just part of a packed two-day schedule. Besides learning from those who have already 'been there' attendees will have the opportunity to become certified in Inedo products at the 101 and 201 level. In the workshops you’ll learn how to use BuildMaster and ProGet tools to automate builds, create a deployment pipeline, improve vulnerability assessment and testing, and make use of telemetry to enable self-support and centralized alerts/diagnostics. InedoCon workshop content is sourced directly from Inedo’s usual onsite or remote product training and valued at $2500 per course for teams.

Dear [Boss / Team],
As we head into spring, I'd like to attend InedoCon 2019: The Automation Journey for Enterprises, taking place May 22-23, 2019 in Portland, Oregon at the Courtyard Portland City Center. I'll be able to meet other sysadmins, architects and developers who are tackling similar DevOps challenges at their organizations.
InedoCon is geared towards [insert role] at organizations like ours that are interested in best practices in software delivery, and need expertise and tools to scale automation, adopt microservice architecture and CI/CD, and build a software delivery process end-to-end.
As a user of [ProGet and BuildMaster], tools that are central to our software development and delivery, my attendance at InedoCon will provide valuable training to help us achieve [fill in team goal] this year. I'll come away with both strategic direction and tactical advice to improve our existing workflows and get legacy systems under control.
A ticket to InedoCon includes:
- A full day of sessions covering continuous delivery, infrastructure automation, and packaging to help us implement a working CI/CD pipeline at our organization. Sessions include:
- A case study from WebMD on building a CI/CD platform across dozens of microservices and a legacy monolithic application with BuildMaster in play along the way.
- How Alkami uses ProGet to handle componentization, the move to microservices, and resulting explosion of growth in repos, build plans, packages and deployments.
- Strategic approaches to introducing automation in compliant-heavy industries, like government.
- How to leverage ProGet and BuildMaster to simplify applications and prove compliance.
- How you can add CI/CD to a legacy application through build, deployment, and process automation (from BuildMaster's product director himself)
- A day of certification workshops valued at $2,500 led by InedoCon speakers Kevin Griffin, Mark Johnson, and Kendall Miller on how to make the most of ProGet and BuildMaster, with an option to get on-site certification. I'll learn how to use the tools to automate builds, create a deployment pipeline, improve vulnerability assessment and testing, and make use of telemetry to enable self-support and centralized alerts/diagnostics.
- Meals, plus entrance to the event's networking reception.
Cost for attending:
If I register by March 29, the conference ticket is just $200. With travel and accommodations totaling [fill in cost], the all-in cost would be [total].
