Greater Wisconsin Software Symposium
February 24 - 25, 2012 - Madison, WI
Stop, DevOp, and Roll Out Software
What is the DevOps movement? It a nutshell, it is the idea that the days of silos are over. Development, QA, and operations can no longer be thought of as separate warring divisons with their own "turfs." Instead, we must focus on the fact that we are all part of a single value stream for the customer. By collaboration and shared expertise, we can find real overlaps between our previously segregated areas of expertise and optimize that value stream.
We'll cover the following topics:
- Death to Silos: developing an culture of collaborative software delivery
- Developing communication and bridge-building skills
- Understanding your business and its domain
- The automated "infrastructure as code" revolution
- Driving performance, process, and people improvements through metrics
- The DevOps' Toolkit: Puppet, Chef, Flapjack, Vagrant, and friends
