Thought Leaders. DevOps Heroes. Public Speakers. We listen to them as they talk about their solutions, their approaches, and their inevitable triumphs. But are we starting down a dark path, as we forget that 'what makes a great talk' and 'what makes sense for your environment' may not be the same thing? In this entertaining and slightly irreverent talk, the speaker discusses the dangers of taking others' experiences as a source of absolute truth. A discussion of how the innovative and clever solutions that headline various conference talks may very well not apply to your environment will ensue, including but not limited to:
  • Matching business requirements to what technologies can deliver
  • The trap of feeling like you're falling behind if you're not doing what the "bleeding edge" companies are
  • At least one story of how following this approach went hilariously wrong
