DA107: DISCIPLINED DEVOPS: DEVOPS FOR THE ENTERPRISE
DevOps offers the promise of having software development teams that can deploy into production several times a day and companies that release changes into production every few seconds. That’s great for start-ups and organizations new enough that they don’t have to deal with a lot of legacy, but that’s not your situation. Your organization has been around for a long time. You have a multitude of legacy systems and data sources in place and are drowning in technical debt. You have a legacy culture that prefers a heavyweight approach (you may even be an ITIL shop). You have a shortage of people with agile skills, let alone DevOps skills. Yet you still want to adopt DevOps strategies to remain competitive.
This workshop is geared for people who want to implement DevOps within established organizations. We begin with an overview of the DevOps mindset and Disciplined Agile principles, then we jump into working through a fictional case study for an established enterprise. Via this case study we work through how development needs to evolve for DevOps, how to architect your solutions to support DevOps, how to address both security and data concerns in a DevOps environment, how to coordinate releases when a large number of teams are in flight, and how operations and support works in enterprise-class DevOps.
The workshop is not technical and is suitable for all team members. Many group exercises reinforce the principles learned. The workshop is valuable for management or leaders tasked with moving from traditional approaches to DevOps.
