All Day DevOps 2016

It all started at All Day DevOps 2016, where I have had an opportunity present my research, Automated Infrastructure Security Monitoring with FOSS, and got wonderful responses and feedback from the community, organizers and around them. It almost built my confidence to the next level to prepare and be able to present to a 13k+ crowd.

I still remember and bookmarked the CFP page of All Day DevOps 2016. This conference helped me make some great friends and the chance to contribute and work with amazing organizers Derek E. Weeks, Mark Miller, and devsecops. They have helped me throughout the conference as well as post conference and now as well :)

I also really appreciate and give credit to my company Appsecco and Akash Mahajan for pushing me to contribute to the community and helping me all the way along :)

All Day DevOps 2017

In 2017, I had taken on more responsibility and was privileged to share my research with community. In this year I had the chance to moderate the DevSecOps track and speak as well. Initially was a bit nervous but you won’t believe what I had done. Read my story about taking at taking on two roles during 2017 All Day DevOps.

All Day DevOps 2018

As I had done great job with previous year, this year I continued with moderating the DevSecOps track and presenting my research.

In 2018, I also did a preview interview with Mike Rosado about my presentation “Container Security Monitoring Using Open Source” and about my self and other things. You can watch the video here.
