DevOps has achieved widespread success. However, that success has been uneven for those who work in Operations. In most enterprises today, it is not uncommon for engineers who come anywhere near Operations to find themselves buried in interruptions, tickets, and repetitive work.
Today we pay close attention to scaling our systems, testing for chaos, and reducing MTTR (mean time to repair) in production. Yet our continuous delivery pipelines don’t get nearly as much love. This talk presents tried and tested patterns for increasing accelerating delivery of changes in a safe manner.
Docker is a hard beast to tame, so it’s essential that you know the basics inside out. At DevOpsCon, Gabriella Querales gave a talk about Docker components and how they work, and what to do if they don’t. In Silicon Valley, engineers deploy-and-tell, so sit a while and listen.
DevOps and Serverless, two frames for making sense of the waves of change in IT. Moving beyond a modernist organizational concept, large enterprises and start-ups alike are no longer simply asking “can this be automated (the modernist conception)” but are instead turning towards understanding “what it will mean when this is automated”.
Event-driven microservices architecture has gained a lot of attention recently. The trend in the industry is to move away from Monolithic applications to microservices to innovate faster. While microservices have their benefits, they also come with drawbacks.
DevOps stresses the importance of breaking down silos. The truth is that you can’t actually get rid of silos; you can only realign them. Much of the anxiety caused by controversial topics such as “Enterprise DevOps” and “DevOps teams” reflects an incomplete understanding of the nature of large, complex organizations.
The craft of software application development has evolved over the past thirty years. Yet, in comparison, Infrastructure as Code development (IaC) is still in its infancy. This talk presents some of the most impactful learning journeys from Emma’s career as an application developer, and how to apply those lessons to accelerate the growth of Infrastructure as Code as a craft in its own right.

What is Infrastructure as Code (IaC)? At DevOps Con, we spoke with Emma Button from nubeGo about IaC, what agile methods are needed, the best tools for the job, and what her advice is for people coming into infrastructure from the development world.
How do we determine which metrics are important? How can we be sure that metrics are useful and not harmful? In her session at DevOpsCon 2018, Julia Wester talks about the importance of these questions in the DevOps world and shows which metrics are really relevant.
The agile development of software offers numerous advantages for developers and development teams. On the other hand, Agile also poses new security challenges. Christian Schneider shows in his session from DevOpsCon 2018 which security sins should not be committed in agile projects.
In the DevOps community today, we hear a lot about sociotechnical systems. However, if we want to take an approach based on sociotechnical theory, we also need to think about the sociological framework. In his session at DevOpsCon 2018, Jabe Bloom shows how this can look like and what needs to be considered.
