DevOps In Action: Ops On Dev Teams

Share

Live Webinar – June 12th 2017, 12:00 – 1:00 PM EDT
Activity Type: Education – Course or Training  1 Hour  1 PDU
Provider: Offered by Techtown  (REP 2161 was ASPE)

Note: ASPE has  Re-branded as Techtown  – TechtownASPE is an REP and attendees  will be awarded 1 PDU for this event.

The term “DevOps” was coined by Patrick Debois back in 2009 to communicate the idea that developers and operations people need to connect with each other and work together.

Indeed, in the intervening 7-plus years, along with creating great tools and addressing Flow, Feedback, and Continuous Learning & Experimentation in our practices, the DevOps community has put a lot of effort into the human side of the equation – how to actually connect Dev and Ops.

In this session, Alan Koch (LinkedIn profile) will explore one particularly radical idea for making this connection: Inserting Ops people onto Dev teams.
