Presentation: Dev "Programming" Ops For DevOps Success

Time: Wednesday 11:30 - 12:20 / Location: Churchill Auditorium

We've all heard the DevOps success stories where Dev and Ops are smoothly integrated and harmony prevails throughout the example company. But how do you translate that to your own company? How do you overcome the legacy barriers, silos, bottlenecks, and unintentional conflict found in most enterprises? And how can you influence lasting positive change when you sit in the Development organization and so much of the work to be done lies within Operations? This talk explores the successful patterns -- and damaging anti-patterns -- observed at dozens of companies going through DevOps transformations. The main focus is on how Development teams can influence and take a leading role in the closing of the DevOps divide.
