I was privileged to be invited to speak on the topic of “Defining DevOps” by the London Technology Transformation Network, alongside a long-time friend and Devoxx conference contributor Dan Hardiker. I had a great time presenting at the event, and the questions and feedback we received after the main talks was superb – I took away lots to think about, and I believe the audience did too.
One of the key concepts that Dan and I were attempting to share is that “DevOps” is primarily based around people and organisational practice/process (some may call this ‘culture’). DevOps ‘tooling’ may be easier to understand (and unfortunately to buy too), but a lasting and impactful transformation to delivering valuable software to customers in a more effective way is going to take a coordinated and holistic approach…
I plan to write up my thoughts about this topic in more depth in a later article, but for the moment I was keen to share my slides, and hopefully continue the conversation virtually…
As usual, please do get in touch via firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions. We’re certainly not shy of having opinions at OpenCredo, and I would also be happy to chat further about the concepts behind DevOps, and the processes, practices and transformation required for a successful move to this way of working.
