Are You a DevOps Master? Prove It By @Catchpoint | @DevOpsSummit #DevOps #IoT #BigData #Microservices

With DevOps Summit 2015 right around the corner, we’re upping the rewards and raising the bar

A little over five months ago, we turned the DevOps world on its head by turning a bunch of mild-mannered engineers and other web performance experts into ravenous, glory-seeking fiends who thought nothing of stepping on and over one another in their quest for the ultimate prize and a lifetime of glory.

Now, with DevOps Summit 2015 right around the corner, we’re upping the rewards and raising the bar. You may have emerged as a true web speed aficionado during the spring, but that alone isn’t going to cut it this time around. This time, we’ve upped the ante by expanding the realm of expertise on which you’ll be tested. After all, we’re adamant that performance is about more than just speed, so why limit the testing to just that area? Hence our decision to rebrand version 2.0 as the Ultimate DevOps Geek Quiz Challenge. This time, you’ll be tested on all things DevOps-related, from coding techniques to DNS architecture to the DevOps culture.

And because the knowledge base is broader, the payoff is going to be even better than the last time around, with first prize being a Gold conference pass to DevOps Summit in Santa Clara, CA, where you’ll have access to Cloud Expo, @ThingsExpo, Containers & Microservices Expo, Big Data Expo, WebRTC Summut, and DevOps Summit. And as if that wasn’t enough, we’ll also throw in a $500 travel voucher and the option to transfer the prize to the DevOps Summit in New York in June of next year.

But we’re not sending everyone home empty-handed, either. The second and third place contestants will have their pick of one four awesome tech toys, and anyone who finishes in the top 50 will get an Ultimate DevOps Geek t-shirt.

So what are you waiting for? Click the link below and start putting your skills to the test!
