Despite what you may have heard to the contrary, not everything that happens in Vegas should stay there. Take the DevOps Enterprise Summit 2018 (DOES18), for example: The three-day event attracted the best and brightest in the DevOps world—and me—to discuss all things DevOps. Some of those great conversations were captured in a series of video interviews, which are now available on DevOps TV.
During the two days of interviews in our glass-walled video booth, a variety of folks stopped by to chat about topics ranging from audits and compliance to NextGen Ops and the future of DevOps. Below is a recap of the Day 1 video interviews from DOES18 (Day 2’s recap will post next week):
The Future of DevOps
Wesley Pullen of Electric Cloud, Torsten Volk of EMA and Chris Nowak of FlowStates stopped by to discuss the latest DevOps trends, where DevOps is headed, and understand key emerging practices and technologies that are driving success.
Venture Capital and DevOps
Sid Sijbrandij of GitLab, CJ Napolitano of Electric Cloud and Ubaid Dhiyan of Union Square Advisors chatted about the current state of VC investment into DevOps, how this could evolve in the future and the impact this investment ecosystem has on the global economy.
IT Skeptic Rob England and his partner Dr. Cherry Vu discussed what holds ITIL back from more successful transformation of IT work, and how we can help it succeed, as DevOps and ITSM finally converge on each other in the common ground of service operations.
‘Dear Auditor’ — Compliance and DevOps
Sam Guckenheimer of Microsoft, James Wickett of Signal Sciences and Topo Pal of Capital One talked about the current state of DevOps and audit/compliance. They are part of a team that wrote a love letter to auditors from DevOps, in which a promise was made to make life better. They also compiled a list of audit concerns and documented them in a DevOps Risk Control Matrix with lot of details around the controls, practices and evidences that are collected to support the control.
Damon Edwards of Rundeck, Cornelia Davis of Pivotal Software and Tom Limoncelli of Stack Overflow chatted about the next generation of IT Ops and what emerging patterns and practices teams should consider for the future of IT.
John Willis (Botchagalupe) is passionate about so many topics around DevOps, cloud and technology. One of the areas he is really passionate about, though, is the topic of burnout and fatigue in the IT field. He and Dr. Christina Maslach discussed the concept of burnout and examined the causes and effects of this problem, and the most promising strategies for dealing effectively with it.
Project to Product
Dr. Mik Kersten, CEO of Tasktop, reviewed the transition from project-based work to product-based workflows—the most optimized and scalable DevOps environment will be a highly prized gem for any business only if the product management team is prioritizing the right capabilities into the DevOps process.
Tech for Tech Leaders
Anders Wallgren of Electric Cloud and Erica Morrison of CSG discussed the technology landscape and what things tech leaders need to not only understand from a tech and architecture perspective, but also what they need to know to help build technology and tech platforms for the future of software delivery.
Banking on DevOps
Mark Howell of Lloyds Banking Group, Shaun Norris of Standard Chartered Bank and John Rzeszotarski of KeyBank reviewed a few of the top DevOps journeys in banking and what other financial institutions should consider along their DevOps journeys.
Well, there ya have it: An entire day’s worth of videos compiled for your viewing pleasure. Be sure to check back next week for a recap of our Day 2 video interviews from DOES18 Las Vegas.
