This week, I spoke at DevOps Summit / Cloud Expo 2014 in New York City. The presentation was titled “DevOps Gold: What the Olympics Teaches Us About Agile Development and Release.”
At the recent winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia, we saw athletes from all over the world striving for excellence. Some turned in the best performance of their lives and came home with a gold medal. Others, some favorites, struggled and saw their dreams slip away. In this presentation, we’ll see how DevOps done right is a lot like the Olympics. If you set reasonable goals, train hard, and execute well, you’ll reach DevOps Gold, too. But if you take your releases for granted, you may end up with failure. This presentation is for developers and operations personnel working toward implementing a DevOps process.
