Takeaways from JAX DevOps 2018
Did you miss out on this year’s conference? Here are some of the highlights, to give you an idea of what to expect for next year’s bash.
Mike Long’s opening keynote, “The Structure of DevOps Revolutions”, examined the concept that revolution requires achievements and that tools and data are needed in order to sustain theory.
“Don’t be the first or the last to adopt new technology and new tools (because everything new is broken),” Long explained. “Paradigm shifts like DevOps often require retooling, which can be an extravagance during normal periods of practice.”
Jackie Balzer shared some helpful tips about deployment that she learned while at Adobe. However, Balzer really emphasized one crucial tenant that every developer should have in mind: keeping things as simple as possible goes a long way. As she pointed out in her session, “so much unnecessary complexity is being created by complex source control branching strategies in the software industry”.
Christine O’Dell explored why developers need to commit to their projects on a more long-term basis in her talk on DevOps. It’s not enough to develop a project; developers need to be available to maintain and improve their code in production.
