The setting up phase of DevOps is like the Opening Game in Chess. A good opening can give us advantage for the remaining games. As in chess, there are "book moves" in the Opening Game of DevOps that may be played to our advantage.

Based on my experience in setting up DevOps in an overseas eCommerce platform project with world wide deployment, I will be sharing these book moves as aphorisms in each of the three stages of the build pipeline.

Some of these good practices will be demonstrated in GitHub using some open source projects and the CI tools used in Git Hub.

In the concluding part, we will look at some conventional traps which may hindering the devops in your project context to deliver on its promise and consider some alternatives which we have discussed in the earlier part of the session.

    Thanks for the submission, Rajith :)

    It would be great if you could structure the outline to indicate timings for each section.

    For example,

    Introduction - 3 mins

    Section 1 - 5 mins

    Section 2 - 10 mins

    and so on.

      Hi Joel

      I talked at the XP Conference in Novotel Bangalore on 8th Aug on the same topic, did any one in your review panel attend it?

      I think they did not take any video. In May, I did a session with Unicom, I will check if they had shot any video.
