Is DevOps Still a Thing?
It's been more than 10 years since the term DevOps was coined. Beginning with "10+ Deploys a Day", the desire to ship software faster in smaller batches has become a full-fledged industry. There are transformation consultancies, tools, job descriptions, certifications, and a host of books and articles aimed at explaining why we are doing it wrong and what we should be doing in order to get it right.
In this talk, I will walk us from the original concerns to the current state of the movement. I'll point out trends that have shown value, talk about where teams, companies, and the industry often get stuck. I'll share my experiences working with Riot Games, Chef, Soylent, and a host of other companies who have helped shape (and sometimes confuse) the goals, the tooling, and the culture that we collectively call DevOps.

Where are we going?
Attendees will come away with a stronger understanding of the history of DevOps, the goals and aims, and a stronger sense of where things are headed. They will laugh a lot and cry a little (it has been a rough 10 years), but most importantly they will have a sense of the immense progress we have made.
Anyone working in software development or infrastructure.
