Dutch DevOps & GitHub Community

9th DDOG on February 15th


Our Ninth edition of The Dutch DevOps & GitHub Community will take place on February 15th


What is DDOG

We want to create a community for content related to DevOps and GitHub. We believe GitHub has a lot to offer and deserves a user group in the Netherlands. But we also love the different elements that enable DevOps. So we decided to combine those two into the community you are looking at.
Our goal is to have a platform where we can teach, learn and meet each other.

Tuesday February 15th

We are proud to announce our great speakers!

Getting Started with Octopus Deploy

Sarah Lean

In this session, I will show you how to get started with Octopus Deploy. I will walk you through how to deploy Azure infrastructure using the Runbooks features. Then take the code of an existing application and automate the deployment to that Azure infrastructure.

Sarah Lean - Senior Solutions Architect at Octopus Deploy - Community Speaker - Lifelong Learner - Founder of the Glasgow Azure User Group
With a diverse career that spans over fifteen years, Sarah has been a part of every aspect of the IT world. Sarah is a Microsoft Certified Trainer (MCT) and ex-Microsoft employee.

Born and raised on a dairy farm in Scotland, Sarah holds true to her heritage by embracing the natural world through her appreciation for technology. For Sarah, technology is a way to see life as it grows and adapts, ever-changing, just like the natural world of farming.

Sarah is proud to give back to her community. As a STEM Ambassador, Sarah helps others learn how IT can impact and change their lives for the better. Most specifically, she enjoys teaching the next generation of young women how they too can rise in a male-oriented field and succeed in their own careers. Sarah also founded the Glasgow Azure User Group, a community collective who meets bimonthly to network and discuss the latest in technology.

Sarah’s enthusiasm in the field of technology has given her the opportunity to speak at public events, most notably, Microsoft Ignite.

Quantum software development? Azure Quantum & Microsoft Q#!

Johnny Hooyberghs

You’ve probably heard about quantum computing, but it still remains a mystery? In this introductory session, I will quickly explain important concepts like qubits, superposition and entanglement and how quantum computing can hopefully help us to solve exponentially large problems.

Some theoretical knowledge about quantum physics, quantum gates and quantum algorithms will be combined with examples using a simulated environment on a local PC and on real quantum hardware using Azure Quantum. These examples will use the new quantum language Q# from Microsoft.
