Evangelizing DevOps and Continuous Delivery in your organization

Did you ever hear about these new things called Continuous Delivery and DevOps? In theory, all sounds so easy and meaningful. In practice, it's often hard to get started, both technically and non-technically, or to extend an existing solution to be robust and sustainable, and to span departments in the best possible way. This session shapes the core aspects of Continuous Delivery and DevOps. We talk about NoOps and deployment artifacts, including gradual log-benchmarked releases and pull-deployment/elastic-scalabillity zero downtime deployments. The main part of this session is the interactively set up example delivery pipeline pointing to good practices, proven in many big and complex project structures. After attending this session, you'll know the difference and interfaces of Continuous Delivery and DevOps, you'll be able to directly apply many recipes, know how to integrate lightweight best-of-breed tools as well as know about common pitfalls to look out for. You'll also be able to decide about what tool to choose, e.g. favor Chef over Puppet, or the other way round, and what's important about binary artifacts and how to make them cloud-enabled.

    Hi Balram,

    Thanks for the proposal.  I have a couple of questions for you.  First, you seem to be planning on covering a lot of ground for a 20 minute talk.  Is there really enough time to fit that all in?  My second question is around the content and the title.  Your title is around evangelizing DevOps/CD.  The content feels more like a demonstration of how to do it.  I think both are worthy topics.  As an attendee, I would expect a little more around the "why is DevOps a good thing" based on the title.  You have put a lot of thought into the content, so I wonder if maybe the title wants to change?

      Hi Steve,

      Thanks for your note,  I am streamlining the course at the moment, it is not going to be in detailed about What DevOps is and CD is, though I will touch base during the course. It will be more in line with "Benefits of DevOps" and "How to implement in your organization". This is more of a culture change within your organization across multiple teams. You will have buy in from few, but not from many. I will also focus on how we did it in our workplace, which will throw some light on the challnges faced and how we over came them. Hope this helps?

    Hi Balram,

       Did you link to the right deck?  I ask because it says the speaker is named 'Andrew'.


    Thanks much,
