Thank you so much. I lean, well, I hope you've had a fantastic day one here at DevOps enterprise. I loved all these talks today. We had heard from two group OD us HMRC. We were from American airlines and the amazing story at Kitab. So tomorrow we have so many more great talks from Proctor and gamble, H and M nationwide building society, Admiral John Richardson, Dr. Mccarsten Nora Jones, Corey Quinn, and so many more. So I look forward to seeing you at the networking sessions tonight and for more great talks tomorrow. See you, then


It's the end of an amazing first day of the DevOps enterprise summit. And the great thing about it is it's not over yet. I'm going to share even more opportunities to connect, share, and learn with each other. Now you probably attended some great sessions today. Well, we want to hear about that. Please enter your feedback on the website for the sessions that you did attend. Feedback is really valuable to the speakers and to the programming committee. Feedback is a gift and sharing is caring. So go to the website and enter your feedback reminder that we have the session slides and the videos available. The videos of the plenary talks are available after they air, which means that all the plenary talks for today are already available in the library. And the videos of all the breakout talks over all three days are also available now, and the slides are available for download both on Dropbox and on get hub.


And just because we're not together in person doesn't mean we can't have a happy hour. Yep. We have a happy hour navigate to network and the top level menu, or check out the happy hour channel in slack to get more information about how you can connect with attendees sponsors and it revolution authors. Some of the it revolution authors are hosting an ask me anything session and we have sponsored sessions and a general happy hour, thanks to our sponsors who are hosting sessions tonight and get into gathered to see what's happening there and connect with others. As I mentioned, Matthew and Manuel, the authors of one of our favorite books are having an ask me anything session, check out slack for more information on that. And now one final parting thought a lesson that we can learn from doughnuts and croissants for you summit veterans of the last few years, you know, the lesson for those of you who are new, hear me out.


So imagine you're at the virtual happy hour tonight, and you're engaged in a discussion. You have a drink in your hand, maybe. And you're talking with the group about the day now a new person joins your group. Well, how does your group feel to that newcomer? Does it feel kind of closed off and unwelcoming of new conversation closed off like a, like a donut or is it more like a croissant, more open and welcoming, welcoming of new people and new topics and new contributions? So the lesson I want to leave you with as we go into the happy hour is don't be a donut. All right. With that, have fun at the happy hour tonight. And if I don't see you there, I'll see you back here tomorrow for opening remarks at 10:00 AM, London time, either way, I'll see you soon.
