It was a very busy DevOps Summer 2016. Now that it is almost over, we wanted to bring you some of the highlights. One highlight certainly was the DevOps Enterprise Summit (DOES) in London, where Gene Kim assembled a great lineup of speakers. Two of my favorites were Damon Edwards and John Willis, and I had a chance to sit down with both right after they finished presenting on the main stage of the event.
This interview runs a little long (18 minutes or so) but features a really great discussion with John and Damon. They had just presented on better, faster & cheaper—the “iron triangle,” as Damon calls it. The presentation has grown out of John and Damon’s conversations over the years, many of them on the DevOps Café Podcast.
To me, this iron triangle is the “cold fusion” of DevOps. It is really counterintuitive that by utilizing DevOps principles, you can achieve all three of these business goals. At the end of the day I agree with John and Damon that it is possible with DevOps.
A special thanks to John, who literally had just stepped off an overnight flight to London and appeared that morning on little to no sleep.
I am including first their actual presentation at DOES, courtesy of IT Revolution, and then my interview with them, where we dug a little deeper. I hope you enjoy listening and watching as much as I did speaking with these fellows.
Here is the interview:
