Why Sufficiently Advanced Ops is Akin to Magic

Deepak Giridharagopal, CTO, Puppet

Infrastructure is everywhere — but it’s only as strong as the humans who power it. Behind the technology running our world are the thousands upon thousands of people who dedicate their days to making sure the rest of us stay connected, can do our jobs, and can live our lives as we’ve come to know them. Puppet CTO Deepak Giridharagopal speaks to the people at the center of automation and why, without them, technology doesn’t matter.
