Africa DevOps Day 2016

Last Thursday I attended a DevOps conference – Africa DevOps Day 2016 – which was hosted by FNB. The day was themed around “DevOps Skills for the Future -­ The Next Generation“.

It was a great demonstration of collaboration and knowledge sharing across the Banking Industry and other industries to pioneer DevOps practices in South Africa.

You can have a look at the conversation on Twitter #AfricaDevOpsDay, there are some amazing quotes and conversations that were shared on Twitter.

Here are the sketches I did on the day:
