DevOps Exchange - Halloween Special ft. Netflix, Ziglu & CyberArk


Here at the DevOps Exchange, we have been very excited about Halloween - more specifically, our "DevOps Horror Stories" event which took place last night. Featuring three incredible speakers, including the return of DevOps Exchange cofounder David Gildeh, we gathered round to hear terrifying tales of security leaks, a failing BACS system and what happens if you don't have scalable architecture in place and suddenly find yourself with 20million new customers. 

You can now view all the recordings from the event below:
