Good day everyone! I’m Kevin Poorman, developer advocacy director at Harness! Good to ‘meet’ you. I’m relatively new here at Harness, but I'll be seeing a lot of you soon on codeAbout! What’s codeAbout? Oh, heavens to Siri! Forgive me, I’m having a race-condition morning where everything is out of order. Let me try that again!
I’m excited to tell you about a new livestream series that we’re kicking off called codeAbout. Yep, a livestream. If you’re new to that idea, just think about it as a webinar with a three bug minimum.
I’ve created codeAbout because in my 25 years of software development, I've learned (the hard way) how I learn best. And of all the things I've tried, I learn best when I, (ahem) “code about and find out.”
On the livestream, you’ll get to join and interact with your’s truly, guests, and the extended Harness community. While everyone’s invited, this content is tailored to developers and engineers. We’ll be exploring all the nooks and crannies of the Harness ecosystem from CI to CD to Chaos. We’ll have guests (wanna be a guest?) to build real-world solutions to unique and fun problems engineering teams are facing.
Some of our content will be for those developers who barely know what CI is. Other content will be by and for the grizzled veterans of the DevOps world.
I remember back in the 90’s (yep, I’m an elder millennial), there was this zeitgeist of must see TV! Look, I don’t want to over promise and under deliver, but I think codeAbout is the must see stream you’ve been looking for. Like your favorite hits of yester-year, codeAbout has a defined, regular schedule. We’ll be live (most) Thursdays at 1pm Eastern. That's 10am Pacific, or 18:00 Her Majesty’s time and 22:30 IST. Can’t make that time because you’re in the middle of your weekly Yak-shaving or walking your pet butterfly? That’s ok. The cool thing about streaming is that the episodes will live on for you to watch on demand.
Like any great thing, there are some rules, and like all rules I’m sure we’ll inadvertently break them. Let’s go over those rules, so you all know what to expect.
Oh, such a great question! As you might imagine, we’ve got quite the number of things we could talk about. Rather than bland promises of covering everything, I thought I’d share our first six episodes. (Note: These are subject to change if a guest has to reschedule.)
Mr. Bainbridge, was an ex-marine drill sergeant who ‘retired’ to teach me 7th grade English. I’ll never forget the way he drilled into us that for any event, we need to share the:
Who: You. Yes you. The sharp dressed person reading this. (Existing and prospective Harness users! )
What: The (carnival barker's voice) must see live-stream of the decade!
When: Most Thursdays, from 1-2pm ET 10am Pacific, 18:00 GMT and 22:30 IST. Starting on July 28th. (Go make that calendar appointment!) We’ll have the lobby open with some uber chill music about 10 minutes before we start.
Why: For fun. For learning. For Glory. In all seriousness, the goal here is to have fun learning together (say it with me now!) by coding about and finding out!
I’m looking forward to seeing you there! Dying with anticipation? Go over to that Twitch channel and the YouTube channel and mash those Like and Subscribe buttons for me. It’ll inflate my ego in the run-up, and it’ll allow Twitch and YouTube to notify you when we go live. I can’t wait to see you all on the livestream as we codeAbout and find out!
