DevOps Enterprise Summit 2018 (DOES18) in Las Vegas was a three-day bonanza of all things DevOps, with conversations spanning the entire DevOps ecosystem, from processes to tools to culture. In my two days at the Broadcast Booth (aka “The Fishbowl”), I had the pleasure of meeting with some very smart people and having some highly insightful conversations, all of which are available for viewing on DevOpsTV.
The second day’s conversations at DOES18 were as interesting as the first day’s, with topics ranging from DevOps culture to managing DevOps in highly regulated environments. Below is a recap of the Day 2 video interviews at DOES18 (Day 1’s recap is available for viewing here):
Carmen DeArdo of Tasktop and Jon Smart, formerly of Barclays Group, stopped by to discuss tactics in ways to make change efforts possible in the enterprise.
