Fishbowl Discussion: How Much Automation Is Enough?

[presentation]
by
Ryan Ripley
Summary: 

These days, everyone knows some automation is a necessity. More usually feels better. But when are you done? Or when do you stop for now? How can you tell if adding automation is no longer helping, or is even distracting from the real issues? Because the answer is "It depends," you'll want to listen to the wisdom of others who are on the same journey. In a fishbowl discussion, the audience members sit in a circle of chairs in the middle of the room. Several brave souls will fill all but one of the chairs in the "fishbowl." When you want to join as a speaker, you enter the fishbowl and sit in the empty chair, and one of the other speakers will voluntarily leave so that one chair is always available for a new speaker. You'll hear ideas and experiences from experts and peers alike. Come join Ryan Ripley as he facilitates this exciting conversation. You can be as involved in the discussion as you wish—just watch from the audience, or jump into the fishbowl!
