Who's doing the talking

Damian Brady

Cloud DevOps Advocate at Microsoft

I'm a Cloud Developer Advocate for Microsoft with a specialty in DevOps. After spending 2017 in Toronto Canada I'm now back in sunny Australia, based in Newcastle. Formerly a dev at Octopus Deploy (https://octopus.com) and a Microsoft MVP, I have a background in software development and consulting in a broad range of industries. In Australia, I co-organised the Brisbane .Net User Group, and launched the now annual DDD Brisbane (http://dddbrisbane.com) conference. I regularly speak at conferences, User Groups, and other events around the world, and I'm an occasional guest on various podcasts like .NET Rocks (https://dotnetrocks.com) and Hanselminutes (https://hanselminutes.com). Most of the time you'll find me talking to developers and IT Pros to help them get the most out of their DevOps strategies. I also have my own Microsoft Channel 9 show - "The DevOps Lab" (https://aka.ms/devopslab). Check it out for real-world guidance on implementing DevOps in your organisation!
