The latest in DevOps
“Companies who still think in terms of 9-18 months delivery cycles are bringing a knife to an on-demand era gunfight,” says Sacha Labourey, CEO and founder CloudBees, the Enterprise Jenkins company.
The former JBoss CTO will appear at the JAX London conference in October for a keynote on “Success in a Software-Defined Economy“. At this stage, we’re all well aware that ‘software is eating the world’. Today’s companies are realising that IT needs to be an integral part of business. That’s why Labourey’s keynote will focus on explaining how Jenkins-based DevOps and Continuous Delivery approaches are transforming software delivery processes to achieve dramatic improvements in overall speed, quality and business unit satisfaction.
In other conference news, the conference team has rounded off the program by welcoming two new speakers to this year’s JAX speaker list: Java Champion Stephen Colebourne will be educating attendees on Java 8 best practices, while Google developer advocate Ray Tsang will lead two how-to sessions on the topics of Java-based microservices, containers and Kubernetes Autoscalers.
