tl;df; it was a blast!
Visiting my first barcamp since 2019 I know now what I’ve missed: Drinks, food and soulfood!
DevOps Camp was hosted at Brandad Systems AG in Fürth
Coffee was sponsored by cloudpunks
Catering was provided by Frau B.
Incredible as always!
Due to family business I couldn’t attend all session slots but I’ve attended a few really nice ones:

A nice ask session all around IPv4, IPv6, NAT, Routers and Switches. DNS and DHCP
Main takeaways: IPv6 is here, no more NAT necessary

A talk about black swan events, spreading slowness, thundering herds and hitting limits in IT systems.
Main takeaways: “What can go wrong will go wrong” and that the world is more correlated than we think.
