Inaugural NYC-LOPSA Chapter Meeting

Date December 6, 2010

All of the pieces have been put into place, and I am very happy to announce that the first New York City LOPSA meeting will be held
Tuesday, December 14th at 7pm.

Headlining this meeting will be John Allspaw from Etsy.com, presenting "Cooperation, Collaboration, and Awareness":

It's not just good enough to develop elegant software, it's mandatory to develop operable software, especially in web architectures. This presentation will talk about the various pain points and solutions found at Flickr.com and Etsy.com surrounding the collaboration and cooperation between development teams who are tasked with delivering working software and operations teams who are tasked with delivering infrastructure and availability. There are some technical, cultural, and process related things you can do to help everyone own the task of both availability and and rapid change, at the same time.

We will be meeting at the offices of D. E. Shaw, thanks to member Doug Hughes.

The address is:

120 W 45th St
39th Floor
New York City, NY

The building is the 2nd one off of 6th Ave, and D. E. Shaw is on the
marquee. To maintain building procedures (and because we want to be
good neighbors), please RSVP by sending me an email with the names of the
people who will (or may be) coming. We need to give this list to
building security so everyone can be let through.

Thanks in advance, and it's going to be great to meet everyone in person.
