Welcome to the BreakFree Newsletter!
We created this newsletter series to inspire fellow technologists by providing valuable content that's easy to consume. If you've gone searching for resources to aid in your skills development, you know that not all tech-related content is valuable — especially when you have limited time.
That's why we've done the work for you, curated by our own team of experts as well as trusted sources that provide information to aid in your digital initiatives.
Do you have thoughts on topics you'd like to see included in our next newsletter? Shoot us a message at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks and happy reading!

DevOps Leadership Bootcamp
In September, we hosted the DevOps Leadership Bootcamp in which our CTO Bradley Clerkin led a whiteboarding session explaining to the IT leaders in attendance what they need to know for optimizing DevOps. This included common pitfalls to avoid, a game plan for optimization and more.
For our next Leadership Bootcamp, Bradley will be discussing Digital Security: building safely on the cloud without sacrificing velocity. More info on that virtual event is to come!

AGILE & SCRUM: EPISODE 4
Want to learn more about Agile Scrum? Our hosts are joined by Lauren Matura, Senior Solutions Engineer at BreakFree Solutions. As a BreakFree team member, Lauren has ample experience being part of a Scrum team.
She discusses the ideal team size and formation; what she looks for in a Scrum Master and Product Owner; and the gang discusses how to interrupt a meeting that is dragging over time so you can get back to work. And most importantly, which would Lauren rather deal with: Python (the coding language) or a real python?!
Watch to the end to see Lauren compete for BreakDown Bragging Rights as she competes in the new game: The Python Pyramid!
The BreakDown is a podcast by IT consultancy BreakFree Solutions in which Senior Architects Chris Lee and Nelson Velasquez break down aspects of digital strategy such as Agile Scrum, DevOps, Cloud and more — all while having fun with their friends/coworkers, putting them on the spot with funny games and rapid fire questions.
