DevOps consulting as a business


Have you ever considered starting your own business? DevOps has finally gone mainstream and brought with it some incredible entrepreneurship opportunities. Join Jamie Begin as he discusses how he bootstrapped a freelancing gig into a $2MM/yr. cloud and DevOps consulting company. Topics include: choosing an appropriate service model, recruiting and training the right people, how to do sales when you're an engineer, and the challenges of scaling a quickly-growing company. Jamie will candidly share both his successes and failures over the past five years on the road to building his business, RightBrain Networks.
