YOW! Sydney 2019

YOW! Sydney 2019 has come and gone and what a conference it was. Here is my summary of the talks I attended (with sketchnotes). You can access a PDF of my sketchnotes here. Or find them all on twitter under #YOW19 and #Sketchnotes. Hopefully I’ll see you at the 2020 conference.

If you are interested in starting with sketchnotes, I have hints and tips here.

Keynotes

Day 1: Gene Kim and The Unicorn Project

Gene Kim is a well established author and consultant in the DevOps space. He’s written The Phoenix Project, The DevOps Handbook and now his third book The Unicorn Project. I’m looking forward to reading the next one in the series. You can see a similar talk from DevOps Days Portland on youtube here:

Day 2: Troy Hunt and we are all pwned

Troy Hunt always gives an entertaining presentation and he’s a security expert from the Gold Coast, Queensland. He runs a website called, Have I been PWNED and the answer is most definitely always yes. He’s got a similar talk from NDC Sydney here:
