    DevOps as a buzzword is gaining traction, but what does it really mean? Managers, non-techies, and developers-new-to-devops will get a guided demo of development automation. See all the cool tools in action - continuous integration, automated testing, cloud deployment, etc. More importantly, we'll walk through what they do, and why that adds value to a project. 

    This talk will...

    • Break down the buzzwords and define some key technical practices in plain english.
    • Uncover the pain that leads teams to seek greater automation.
    • Demonstrate a continuous integration pipeline working in practice via live demo.
    • Diminish the knowledge gap between technical practitioners and managers/analysts/coaches.
    • Level-up the vocabulary of non-technical attendees.
    • Introduce practices to developers who don't yet work in an automated environment.
    • Spark "ah-ha" moments to convert skeptics into DevOps believers!

    By the way, all of the tools in the demo are some combination of free and/or open source. DevOps doesn't have to cost a lot.

    All Not for Profits aspire to be effective, nimble, and fun all while changing the world. Agile mindsets and practices can help all nonprofit organizations use technology agile concepts skillfully and confidently to meet community needs and fulfill their missions.

     

    Successfully implementing and fully adopting agile can be seen as unnecessary overhead.  Creating an Agile community and toolbox for Not for Profits would greatly reduce the organization change costs and allow not for profits to benefit faster.  This community would facilitate the exchange of knowledge and information within the agile community and within the Not for Profit sector. It would connect members to each other, provide professional development opportunities, educate our constituency on issues of technology use in nonprofits, and spearhead groundbreaking research, advocacy, and education on technology issues affecting our entire community.
