Continuous Delivery - the missing parts

50 minutes

Talk

English

A lot of developers have started to believe that hooking Visual Studio up to Azure and pushing code direct from their machines is CD. As much as I hate to say it, it isn’t. Continuous delivery has so many more moving parts required to work together.

As we discuss concepts such as config management, orchestration, security, monitoring and logging, this talk will help developers realise that continuous delivery is something we need to continually measure, learn and adapt to make us a higher achieving organisation.

The Transition from Product to Infrastructure

50 minutes

Talk

English

Over the past number of years, operations has become a very interesting part of IT. Traditionally, operations and developers have been completely separate. Developers thought SysAdmins worked in basements, eating pizza. But, the operations space has had a boom in new tools to make life a lot easier. The role of SysAdmin has become a very important part of the product delivery cycle.

Paul has made the transition from being a product developer to an infrastructure developer. In this talk, he will be able to talk about why that was an interesting move and the types of problems he has to work on on a day-to-day basis. Paul will be able to talk about how this move has helped him be involved in much more successful project delivery and also how it has helped the companies he has worked with become more successful.
