Delivering Open Source Projects with Agile & DevOps Thinking

Interested in learning how Red Hat is using Agile and DevOps thinking to help deliver popular open source projects such as Docker, Kubernetes and Project Atomic? Red Hat’s Chief Agile Architect, Jen Krieger, will walk you through the good, bad and the ugly of working with a highly motivated team.

 
 

Outline/Structure of the Talk

This presentation covers:

  • What is Open Source?
    • Review the open source "manifesto"
  • How it works
    • Review Challenges and Benefits
  • How we integrate Agile into these projects
    • What is our tool chain if we have to use all open source or free tools?
  • Battling skepticism from Open Source communities
    • Review the "rules" of Agile when working with Open Source communities
  • Lessons Learned via doing it

Learning Outcome

Open source software development is the future of every engineer's lives. Unfortunately, many in the tech industry either know it is coming but don't know how to get their companies to use it, or they aren't even aware (in the case of certain roles, like project managers and scrum masters). Open source is categorically going to change everything about how we work (it really already has). This talk will help attendees understand how this way of working may change everything.

      Doing agile is simple while being so much more elusive.Mindsets influence the whole gamut of emotional, logical processing and filtering we apply in our daily lives! We all have witnessed in some ways how a paradigm shift, a change in perspective, a flexible belief system could tremendously alter and impact the outcomes we seek in all aspects of our daily lives and society.

      My talk hits at the core of systemic thinking, sharing experiences and real life stories of transformation effected by shift in mindset, creating a vulnerable yet safe environment for teams to experiment, explore and grow. I will also cover tools and models like the Karpman drama triangle that uncovers motivations and motives, the trust ownership model, the five dysfunctions that infect teams and how to cure them.

      I am a story teller at heart and will weave stories around these topics that will keep the session interesting, engaging and active. Have shared video and slides from an earlier session, I will be modifying the content and delivery for India Agile session.

      The “Agile mindset” was introduced to the software development community in 2001 in an attempt to foster freedom in the way that we work together. Its intent was to encourage organizational change that focused on people, collaboration and culture.

      But words on a screen don’t mean much in practice, especially if the people using them don’t - or won’t- understand their intent. How can individuals, teams and companies learn to correct these mistakes and break free from the challenges associated with change?

      Jen will share practical advice on effective Project Management, Agile Transformation, and getting things done– all told through the stories of her own journey towards something better at Red Hat.

      You’ve worked hard, you have mastered every coding language on the planet, including COBOL. You know jenkins, travis, go, containers, puppet, chef, CFengine, nagios, github, graphite, logstash, ansible, aws, gce, vagrant, cms, cvs, abc, 123, and even a little bit of TFS. Your resume is up to date, and you are ready for your next job.

      Well, slow down there… Industry trends in engineering are showing a growing desire in companies to hire people who have proven soft skills, are good at collaborating with others, and can regularly solve the most complex problem we face today: effectively talking to our fellow humans.

      Please join Jen for a self-effacing and situationally humorous conversation about the journey of becoming more comfortable with collaboration, open communication and reaching through “the wall.”

      Topics will include:

      • “Collaborate or Die” survival skills
      • The dreaded “soft skills” and how to become comfortable with them
      • What to do in common situations all engineers face
      • How to convince others that your idea is the right idea
      • How do you get the time you need to get your work done
