Recently, we talked with David Brear about the seemingly inevitable clash between FinTech and the banking industry, his best guess at the industry’s next step, and what exactly happens if banks don’t change with the times.
When going down the DevOps road, automation through any means possible is critical. If it can be automated through tools, code, or robots, that’s the path a driven DevOps team will take. However, automation is not the only pillar of DevOps. We talked to Abbas Haider Ali, CTO at xMatters about a recent DevOps maturity survey the company carried out alongside Atlassian.

We’ve been really enjoying JAX DevOps in London this week. Stefanos Zachariadis, one of our speakers, was kind enough to sit down and answer a few questions about the importance of data testing, how to keep end users from getting bugs, and why you should invest in a data “cleanser”.
We’re gearing up for JAX DevOps by talking to IBM’s Steve Poole, who reveals his experiences in moving applications into the cloud and tells us what should or shouldn’t be done, what matters, what doesn’t. The cloud is 24×7. You need to be too.
Blockchain and smart card technology go together like cheese and wine. Why, you ask? We talked to Randy Vanderhoof, executive director of the Secure Technology Alliance about their newly-launched white paper, organizations’ need for blockchain, smart card technology and blockchain’s potential in IoT.
We’re gearing up for JAX DevOps by talking to Kris Buytaert, who explains what he means by “software has only value when it is running in production”.
New power couple Atlassian-Trello has announced that Jira, Confluence, HipChat and Bitbucket will be receiving a boost in the form of Power-Ups.

We invited Steve Goldsmith, General Manager of HipChat, to tell us how Atlassian plans to “solve collaboration” for teams.
It’s a situation many of us are familiar with: a large legacy, monolithic application, limited or no tests, slow & manual release process, low velocity, no confidence… A lot of refactoring is required but management keeps pushing for new features. Now what? We talked to Michiel Rook, a Java/PHP/Scala contractor and consultant about the challenges that walk hand in hand with continuous deployment.
Middleware is the tech behind the scenes, working to solve diverse and complex problems but a lot of people still don’t give it enough credit. We talked to Erica Langhi, senior solution architect EMEA at Red Hat, about the immediate benefits of middleware and its ability to power digital transformation.
Containers are among the most discussed topics in the world of enterprise software today, especially when Docker comes into play. We invited Jussi Nummelin, core engineer building container orchestration at Kontena, Inc. and speaker at JAX DevOps, to talk about the benefits of containers and his favorite tools and to weigh in on containers’ “silver bullet” label.
Containers revolutionize the way modern software is being developed and operated. We talked to Johannes Unterstein, Distributed Applications Engineer at Mesosphere and JAX DevOps speaker about container tools and technologies and containers’ usefulness in a DevOps context.
Handing off an artifact, providing CI, moving towards continuous delivery, challenging teams to “go faster with higher quality” can all fall under DevOps. We invited Michael Kren, DevOps manager at Jamf, to talk about the business benefits of DevOps and the tools they used to implement DevOps.
AirDev has pioneered a new approach to software development by replacing coding engineers and managers with business-savvy builders. We invited Andrew Haller, co-founder and co-CEO of AirDev, to talk about this San Francisco-based startup and to weigh in on the future of programming.
