Welcome to the Slope of Enlightenment By @bcferrycoder | @DevOpsSummit [#DevOps]

Java Developer's Journal - 5 hours 19 min ago
It's 2:15pm on a Friday, and I'm sitting in the keynote hall at PyCon 2013 fidgeting through a succession of lightning talks that have very little relevance to my life. Topics like "Python code coverage techniques" (ho-hum) and "Controlling Christmas lights with Python” (yawn - I wonder if there's anything new on Hacker News)...when Solomon Hykes takes the stage, unveils Docker, and the world shifts. If you haven't seen it yet, you should watch the video of Solomon's Pycon The Future of Linux Containers talk that spurred a revolution. It's short, but definitely worth the five minutes. Right at the five minute mark, you can hear the bell ring and then see the host force Solomon to end his talk - just when he had started talking about some really cool stuff. I heard several people, myself included, gasp "No!!!" right when Solomon got the hook. And no wonder, those five minutes were impressive. I swear I saw a bunch of attendees from Google racing out of the room after it was over, in search of pay phones, so they could alert the mothership.
